This well-established, introductory text is ideal for all health professionals concerned with care of newborns. It provides in-depth information on the care of the newborn, both normal and abnormal, full-term and pre-term, and from minor to major abnormalities and illnesses. An introduction to neonatology concentrates on common conditions, and all aspects of care of the baby are covered - from the antenatal period to the end of the first month after birth.
