Essentials of Neonatal Medicine Summary


Essentials of Neonatal Medicine by Malcolm I. Levene

Although written primarily for junior hospital doctors and membership candidates, the lucid instruction given in this practical manual will also appeal to midwives and neonatal nurses. Recent advances in our knowledge of fetal physiology have given rise to numerous methods of antenatal management and neonatal intensive care while similar advances in technology have resulted in new techniques for investigating and monitoring high-risk neonates. The text not only covers all the situations likely to occur in hospital practice, but also explains the reasons behind every procedure. It presents an up-to-date account of neonatology and is liberally illustrated with explicit line diagrams and photographs. Pgrad. text.
