A Manual of Neonatal Intensive Care by Janet M Rennie & Elizabeth Garrett Anderson – 5th ed.
It is now over 30 years since the publication of the first edition of A Manual of Neonatal Intensive Care (1981). In that time, generations of residents and neonatal nurses have come to rely on the book as a source of sound practical advice with an explanation of the reasons behind the recommended course of action.
As before, authors have aimed to distill the wisdom acquired from long experience into a readable text supplemented with lists and tables. In a rapidly advancing field such as this, some management strategies arc controversial and lack an evidence base, and in this situation they have suggested the course of action which they have found most helpful while briefly outlining the alternatives.
No working day on a neonatal unit is ever the same; but an understanding of normal neonatal physiology’ and the common response of the new born to illness can help everyone who works in this pressurized environment to respond and plan treatment appropriately. That has been main aim in writing the book.
