5 Star Doody's Book Review!
This is a unique book that will quickly find an important place among the standard references for primary care pediatric providers. It is comprehensive and well written, covering much of what primary care providers encounter that is absent from the standard intensive care textbooks of neonatology. There is no comparable books in this area -- this fills an important need.
This book from the American Academy of Pediatrics is directed at primary care physicians or nurse practitioners who care for newborns with common problems. The book differs from standard neonatal books in that it does not emphasize intensive care or the care of extremely premature infants, but rather a practical approach to common problems seen in the first month of life.
The purpose is to provide "an action-oriented working tool" for primary care providers on common neonatal problems. This is a very worthwhile objective; these issues are often overlooked in standard textbooks. Under the direction of editor Dr. Deborah Campbell, the more than 50 contributors certainly meet their goal.
The book is aimed at primary care providers, but active neonatologists also may use this as a reference for the frequent consult in the well-baby nursery. The editor and many of the contributors are well-known authorities in the field. The book has been reviewed by experts in the relevant sections and committees of the American Academy of Pediatrics
The seven sections of the book cover common conditions such as routine care, abnormalities of the physical exam, and common medical conditions such as jaundice, respiratory distress, heart murmur, and metabolic problems. There are a suitable number of tables, illustrations, and fairly high quality pictures and radiographs appropriately placed throughout. I especially appreciated the two unique chapters on postnatal assessment of prenatal sonographic findings and supporting families during perinatal illness and death.
