Manual of Neonatal Care is written for neonatal residents, nurse practitioners, and nurses working in neonatal intensive care. In an outline format, it provides information on maternal, fetal, and neonatal problems, as well as common neonatal procedures.
One pilot study nurse writes: "This book is written by physicians and ... the main audience targeted seems to be physicians. However, the book does apply to neonatal nurses and I would recommend it for them. It is important for nurses to know the specialized pathophysiology, disease process, diagnostic pathways, medical rationale for treatment, and current recommended treatments for the neonate in order to apply appropriate nursing treatment/care." Another pilot study nurses writes: "Excellent resource and coverage of all aspects to do with neonatal intensive care. Easier for the experienced nurse."
