September 2012, ©2012, Wiley-Blackwell
Essential Neonatal Medicine combines the depth and breadth of a textbook with the clarity and efficiency of a learning consolidator. Providing a solid reference for trainee doctors, neonatal nurses and midwives, this full colour edition has been extensively updated with a range of new illustrations, clinical tips, cross-references to Wiley title Nursing the Neonate (2010, 9781405149747), and end-of-chapter summaries for quick study or revision.
Essential Neonatal Medicine is ideal for all trainee health professionals experiencing neonatology for the first time and looking for a readable and comprehensive resource to support them. It is now accompanied by the enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition (the interactive digital version of the book featuring downloadable text and images, highlighting and note-taking facilities, book-marking, cross-referencing, in-text searching, and linking to references and glossary terms), and a companion website at www.essentialneonatalmed.com featuring figures from the book to download in PowerPoint, further reading, and self-test questions for each chapter.
