Details about Neonatology: A Practical Approach to Neonatal Diseases
Neonatology: A Practical Approach to Neonatal Diseases PDF free download – Neonatology is a science in rapid evolution and all the contributors to this new textbook are experts in their fields, clinically active and committed to developing the best possible care for their patients. This book brings together their expertise in a clear and easy-to-follow manner. Although some may feel that in the age of the internet such a textbook is an anachronism, we feel passionately that those caring for newborn babies will be helped by the accessibility of the information, written by experts, in this single volume. Our intention is that healthcare practitioners with responsibility for babies will be helped by the knowledge of the contributors to this book and their collective experience acquired over many years. The evidence base for practice has been set out where available, but there are gaps in the research-based evidence and sick babies still deserve to be given first-class care. We firmly believe that this textbook will enable the better delivery of such high quality care by making widely available the personal expertise of the contributors, who have been selected because of their international reputations and renown. We hope this textbook finds a place in the library of every neonatal unit and on the bookshelf of every practitioner committed to the care of newborn babies. The book has been organized in a logical manner.
In the first section, relevant epidemiology and fetal medicine are considered. Here consideration is given to epigenetic mechanisms and well as more traditional risk factors. Intrauterine growth restriction is considered from obstetric, neonatal and therapeutic aspects. There are chapters devoted to the difficult ethical problems in this area of care, how to make decisions, and how to measure the quality of the care that our small patients receive. The vital issue of follow up outcomes is considered, as well as the complexities of cerebral plasticity and functional reorganization in children with congenital brain lesions.
