Summary

Thoroughly revised and updated, this new edition of Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing is a comprehensive, evidence-based text for nurses and midwives caring for sick newborn babies.

Written by and for nurses, it concentrates on the common problems occurring within the neonatal intensive care unit. This user-friendly text will enable nurses to recognise, rationalise and remedy these problems using both a multi-systems and an evidence-based approach. Individual chapters include:

Professional Development • Developmentally-focused Nursing Care • Resuscitation of the Newborn • Management of Thermal Stability • Management of Respiratory Disorders • Cardiovascular Management • Brain Injury in the Preterm Infant • Haematological Problems • Pain Management • Fluid and Electrolyte Balance • Nutritional management • Neonatal Infection • Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures • Neonatal Anaesthesia • Surgical Aspects of Neonatal Intensive Care • Neonatal Transport • Family Support • Ethics and Neonatal Nursing • Medication in the Newborn • Death and Dying in the Neonatal Unit

It is essential reading for experienced nurses and midwives caring for sick newborn babies within the neonatal intensive care unit, for nurses undertaking qualifications in the specialism of neonatal nursing and for pre-registration students undertaking relevant modules or placements.
