About the Authors
  • Covering the management of critically ill newborns from the first minute of life through the first 72 hours, this practical, evidence-based and clinically-informed guide will provide all members of the pediatric care team with the essential information to save lives and prevent disability. With chapters on neonatal transport, resuscitation, ventilation and ethical issues, the content is further illustrated with case studies illustrating the real-world aspects of identifying critical signs and symptoms, diagnostics and treatment in multiple settings. As well as including numerous clear diagrams and summary tables, the text includes algorithms based on international guidelines to help navigate the reader through the delivery of care, and a comprehensive listing of drugs and dosages, serving as a quick reference guide when making treatment decisions. This is essential reading for pediatric residents, fellows and junior faculty, neonatal intensive care nurses, paramedics, obstetricians, midwives, anesthesiologists and emergency medicine physicians.

    • Unique coverage of the first 72 hours of newborn life from birth, through transport and intensive care
    • Includes care-plan algorithms and drug dosage tables to help the reader make quick and accurate treatment decisions

    Reviews & endorsements

    'We are pleased to see this important contribution to standardize the initial management of critically ill newborns. This book appears so valuably not only because the information is based - as far as possible - on evidence-based medicine, but also because of the internationality of the contributing authors, for which we would like to express our appreciation. We consider this book as an excellent complement to our activities in interdisciplinary trainings using our newborn simulation training center.' Arnold Pollak MD, Head of the Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Medical University of Vienna

    'As a new, and therefore unfamiliar, book it will need to offer something more to attract a readership and gain a good reputation. Fortunately, this is something that it is likely to do; Neonatal Emergencies presents pertinent information in a concise, easy-to-read manner. … extremely thorough, well-written and well-referenced … I would recommend it highly to anyone who looks after neonatal patients.' Archives of Disease in Childhood - Fetal and Neonatal Edition
