The first neonatal handbook to focus on clinical protocols and best management practices

Clinical Guidelines in Neonatology provides a compilation of the most current and authoritative clinical care recommendations for the neonatal patient. The goals of this innovative text are to help deliver effective, evidence-based neonatal care; foster consensus in practice; and to enable clinicians to deliver the best value for every healthcare dollar spent. Readers will find it to be a comprehensive source of clinical recommendations, care paths, and guidelines to help them manage the most commonly encountered neonatal conditions.

Spanning all major areas of neonatal care, Clinical Guidelines in Neonatology bypasses dense explanations in favor of high yield text and ready-to-apply evidence-based management guidelines. Chapters follow a uniform presentation of neonatal conditions that include the scope, major recommendations, implementation of guidelines into practice, summary, and bibliographic sources.

Key Features
  • Chapters focus on clinical management practices and evidence-based supporting data rather than lengthy  descriptions of disease and practice
  • Covers all major areas of neonatal and perinatal medicine, including antenatal and perinatal management; neonatal  transition; nutrition, fluids, and electrolytes; respiratory distress; cardiovascular disorders; blood disorders;  infections; endocrine and metabolic disorders; and neurological issues
  • Text is supplemented by evidence-based diagnostic and treatment algorithms, detailed illustrations, and clinical  images
