This comprehensive book thoroughly addresses common clinical challenges in newborns, providing an evidence-based, step-by-step approach for their diagnosis and management. The title is designed to be an easy-to-use, practical guide, covering a full range of clinical dilemmas: bacterial and viral infections, jaundice, hypoglycemia, hypotonia, nursery arrhythmia, developmental dysplasia of the hips, newborn feeding, cardiac problems, late preterm infants, dermatology, anemia, birth injuries, ocular issues, as well as hearing assessments in the newborn. Written by experts in their fields, each chapter begins with a clinical case presentation, followed by a discussion of potential treatment and management decisions and various differential diagnosis. Correct responses will then be explained and supported by evidence-based literature, teaching readers how to discern the normal from the abnormal, the emergent from the non-emergent, and how to make decisions concerning diagnosis encountered on a daily basis. While this guide is directed towards health care providers such as pediatricians, primary care physicians, and nurse practitioners who treat newborns in the general nursery, this book will also serve as a useful resource for anyone interested in working with this vulnerable patient population, from nursing and medical students, to nurses, and residents in pediatrics or family practice.
