""Ideal for any student or qualified midwife/nurse irrespective of branch interested in working in the neonatal field."" "3rd year child nursing student, University of Salford" "This is an excellent resource that would not be out of place on the shelf of any neonatal or midwifery unit. It is thoroughly enjoyable." "(""Nursing Children and Young People," 1 September 2012) "The approach of clearly describing the development processes of the Heart and Lungs and Transition to Extrauterine Life followed by the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Assessment is excellent and really enhances knowledge and understanding ... The book is very well illustrated with tables, graphs, photographs and competencies." (Nursing Times.net, 12 December 2011) ""Ideal for any student or qualified midwife/nurse irrespective of branch interested in working in the neonatal field."" "3rd year child nursing student, University of Salford" ""I like this book. I like the appearance and it is a good size that doesn't put you off by being too wordy and medical. It uses clear professional language that is easy to follow and understand and information is easy to find if you just want to dip in and out. There are helpful diagrams and images used to support the text and references are current and relevant."" 3rd year midwife student, Keele University "The approach of clearly describing the development processes of the Heart and Lungs and Transition to Extrauterine Life followed by the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Assessment is excellent and really enhances knowledge and understanding ...
