Gomella's Neonatology, Eighth Edition
Gomella's Neonatology, Eighth EditionView
Gomella’s Neonatology makes it easy to quickly retrieve information and includes sections on procedures and drug administration. The volume of information in this field has exploded over the last several decades and physicians, especially trainees, need a quick, dependable reference to inform their clinical decisions. Compared to other softcover neonatal handbooks, this is my favorite, and it has become the most widely used book in the NICUs that I have visited. It is no longer a small pocket-sized book, but its unique attribute of being both comprehensive and concise makes it the preferred reference in this area. The section of "On-Call" problems is invaluable to residents, and they are now frequently searching for the latest edition in our unit.

Physical Assessment of the Newborn,, 6ed
Physical Assessment of the Newborn,, 6edView
The newly revised, 25th anniversary edition of this definitive publication on neonatal care continues to illustrate how to systematically and accurately gather assessment data and interpret results. Because even normal newborns feature a wide range of physical variation, subtle signs that indicate internal malformations or syndromes may escape notice without a proper assessment. Many problems in the neonate can be noticed early by an astute nurse, neonatal nurse practitioner, neonatal physician assistant, or physician with honed assessment skills, long before electronic monitors or other equipment can detect them.
Physical Assessment of the Newborn, Sixth Edition, addresses the physical, physiologic, neurologic, and behavioral implications of a thorough assessment, and explains how healthcare providers can reduce the risks associated with the transition to extrauterine life and the neonatal period. Grounded with a scientific basis and rationale, each system assessment represents the most up-to-date clinical content. Because assessment skills are such an integral aspect of practice, many individuals take them for granted, yet all health professionals who perform newborn examinations—including nurses, neonatal and pediatric nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, physicians, therapists, and students preparing for advanced practice roles in neonatal care—can benefit from the essential content presented in this book.
New to the Sixth Edition:
- Provides clinical updates throughout
- Presents an enhanced art program
- Offers an all-new chapter on the perinatally substance-exposed neonate
- Includes an image bank and PowerPoints
- Addresses all key aspects of newborn assessment
- Provides a well-organized evaluation of individual body systems
- Assists practitioners in identifying infant state, behavioral clues, and signs of pain
- Examines the wide range of variation among newborns of different gestational ages
- Provides information related to a maternal history, including antepartum testing and intrapartum monitoring
- Written in an easy-to-read, user-friendly style
- Includes continuing education exam
