If you are looking for a comprehensive baby book describing the physical examination and care for neonate babies, look no further than this revised 25th Anniversary Edition of Physical Assessment of the Newborn. This maternal-newborn nursing care text is the definitive publication on neonatal care illustrates how to systematically and accurately gather assessment data and interpret results. Because even normal newborns feature a wide range of physical variation, subtle signs that indicate internal malformations or syndromes may escape notice without a proper assessment or physical examination. Many problems in the neonate baby can be noticed early by a skilled medical professional who is trained to recognize the signs long before electronic monitors or other equipment can detect them.
Physical Assessment of the Newborn, Sixth Edition, addresses the physical, physiologic, neurologic, and behavioral implications of a thorough assessment, and explains how healthcare providers can reduce the risks associated with the transition to extrauterine life and the neonatal period. Every system assessment represents the most up-to-date clinical content, rooted entirely in factual statistics and scientific evidence. Because assessment skills are such an integral aspect of practice, many individuals take them for granted, yet all health professionals who perform newborn examinations―including nurses, neonatal and pediatric nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, physicians, therapists, and students preparing for advanced practice roles in neonatal care―can benefit from the essential content presented in this book. As far as books for baby, infant, and neonatal care go, this celebrated series stands with the best.
