Summary "Clear, concise, and user-friendly, this guide provides solutions to the problems encountered by primary care practitioners who provide care to newborn infants. Unlike other neonatal texts that are often cumbersome and difficult to digest, Care of the Newborn explains the pathophysiology of the disease entities that most commonly affect the newborn in an easy-to-read format and outlines diagnostic evaluations and treatment options. Now "non-neonatologists" have easier access to the information needed to provide excellent care to the newborn population." "Pediatricians and family practitioners will find the essential information they need to maintain their board certification. Furthermore, this versatile text can serve as a core curriculum for students, residents, and neonatal nurses on newborn rotations."--BOOK JACKET
