An accessible, quick reference handbook to assist neonatal nurses in making sound clinical decisions and to think critically.
Consistent format presentation that begins with a brief definition of the problem, diagnostic tests and labs, differential diagnosis where appropriate, and concludes with an algorithm to assist in the decision making process.
Builds on the strength of content presented in Kenner & Lott's Comprehensive Neonatal Nursing: A Physiologic Perspective, 3e.
Chapter 19 focuses on Discharge Planning / Coordination of Home Care to provide the nurse with important patient/family teaching and follow up care considerations for the neonate's condition.
Chapter 20 End-of-Life or Palliative Care helps the nurse understand these important and sensitive care considerations.
