Neonatal Nutrition and Metabolism Summary


Neonatal Nutrition and Metabolism by Patti J. Thureen (University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center)

Neonatal nutrition has a pivotal role in normal child development and is of even greater importance in the sick or premature neonate. This 2006 edition includes a comprehensive account of the basic science, metabolism and nutritional requirements of the neonate, and a greatly expanded number of chapters dealing in depth with clinical issues ranging from IUGR, intravenous feeding, nutritional therapies for inborn errors of metabolism, and care of the neonatal surgical patient. Evolving from these scientific and clinical aspects, the volume highlights the important long-term effects of fetal and neonatal growth on health in later life. In addition, there are very practical chapters on methods and techniques for assessing nutritional status, body composition, and evaluating metabolic function.

Neonatal Nutrition and Metabolism Reviews


Review of the hardback: 'This is now the standard text on neonatal nutrition. No general text devotes this much time and space to this critical aspect of neonatal care.' Doody's Book Review Service
"This is now the standard text on neonatal nutrition. No general text devotes this much time and space to this critical aspect of neonatal care. Although there are books on breastfeeding, intravenous nutrition, vitamin and mineral requirements in the neonate, and general neonatal gastroenterology which all cover certain aspects of this topic, no comparable text is as comprehensive in this field. This reference should be available to all practitioners who work in Level III neonatal intensive care units. This edition seven years after the first edition, is needed due to rapid changes in this area of neonatology." Doody's Book Review Service
"The book is well organized, the chapters are well referenced, and the materials are up to date...I highly recommend this book to all who care for both preterm and ill full-term infants. Wallace F. Berman, New England Journal of Medicine
