Description

Here's today's most encyclopedic, in-depth compendium of knowledge on the normal and abnormal physiology of the fetus and neonate. Over 270 international authorities detail the unique characteristics that distinguish fetal and neonatal physiology from the physiology of adults—and, where appropriate, address the pathophysiology and clinical management of selected neonatal diseases.

Key Features

  • Each chapter extensively revised and bibliographies updated
  • Clinical correlation chapters help the reader measure the impact that their understanding of physiology can have on the outcome of a sick newborn or premature infant
  • This exhaustive text of basic research can aid in preparation for neonatology board exam
