Merenstein & Gardner’s Handbook of Neonatal Intensive Care, 8th Edition, is the leading resource for collaborative, inter-professional critical care of newborns. Co-authored by physicians and nurses, it offers concise, comprehensive coverage with a unique multidisciplinary approach and real-world perspective that make it an essential guide for both neonatal nurses and physicians. The 8th edition features the latest neonatal research, evidence, clinical guidelines, and practice recommendations — all in a practical quick-reference format for easy retrieval and review of key information.
"This is a unique neonatology book that bridges the gap between the standard hardcover textbooks and handbooks. The family-centered approach is also compelling. Dr. Merenstein, who passed away several years ago, would be proud to see that his concept of the team approach to neonatal care has been continued in such wonderful fashion."
-- Jay Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine) Doody's Review
Nurses and advanced practice nurses are the major audience, but residents and neonatal fellows could learn a great deal by reading this book carefully. Sections such as those on heat balance and physiological monitoring, which are often taken for granted in well-established intensive care units, are discussed in detail and with a clarity not found in other standard textbooks or handbooks. The editors and their contributors are, for the most part, well-known experts in this field.
