Praise for the Fifth Edition:

"This book provides a complete look at neonatal healthcare delivery... It] includes discussions of contemporary topics of interest, such as informatics, genetics, global health, and family-centered care, which are vital to providers caring for neonates today. The case studies and evidence-based practice dialogues provide great opportunities for further reflection. The book is useful to a wide audience in nursing, including undergraduate and graduate nursing students, practicing neonatal and pediatric nurses, and advanced practice nurses who care for neonates."

It continues to address neonatal care from a physiologic and pathophysiologic perspective, with a major emphasis on nursing management at the bedside and advanced practice level. It examines each neonatal body system and describes evidence-based interventions that assist in understanding the 'why' behind various clinical presentations.
