Summary

Evidence-Based Neonatal Infections is expertly written by David Isaacs, an experienced author renowned for his knowledge in both pediatric infections and evidence-based medicine. It critically analyses the evidence for decision making in neonatal infections.

Evidence-Based Neonatal Infections

* The first evidence-based text on neonatal infections

* Provides practical guidance where evidence is poor

* Complements David Isaacs’ Evidence-Based Pediatric Infectious Diseases (9781405148580)

Practical and evidence-based, Evidence-Based Neonatal Infections is designed to help the clinician with day-to-day decisions on the care of newborn babies with possible, probable or proven infections. It considers clinical questions relevant to neonatologists, analysing the evidence carefully and providing recommendations for optimum management of neonatal infectious diseases, whilst reflecting on:

  • Efficacy and safety
  • Antibiotic resistance
  • Cost effectiveness
  • Adverse effects
  • Ethical considerations

Evidence-Based Neonatal Infections provides a unique reference for neonatologists, pediatricians, trainees, specialist nurses; general practitioners, microbiologists, infection control doctors, and all staff in neonatal units.
