This manual provides a practical approach to the diagnosis and management of problems of neonates. The book is divided into four sections: Maternal and Fetal Problems, Neonatal Problems, Procedures, and Appendices. An outline format provides quick access to a large amount of information. The Fifth Edition has been fully updated to reflect advances in caring for ever smaller neonates. Two popular appendices from the third edition, Effects of Maternal Drugs on the Fetus and Drug Use by Nursing Mothers, are reincorporated into the new edition.
