Dr. Spitzer has created an issue devoted to the evidence-based pharmacologic care of the neonate. The issue opens with an important article on A Quality Improvement Approach to Modifying Medication Use in the NICU. The expert authors he has secured have contributed articles in the areas of therapeutic drug monitoring, off-label use of medications in the NICU, antenatal and post-natal corticosteroids, antibiotics, antifungals, and antivirals, as well as bronchodilators and nitric oxide. Other articles also present evidence-based use of oxygen, dopamine, anesthetics and analgesics, and erythropoetin.
