Guidelines for Acute Care of the Neonate 28th Edition (2020–2021)

Content

Editors: Fernandes, C.J., Pammi, M., Katakam, L.

Section Editors: Anderson, D.M., Cavazos R.E., Davies, J., Dinu, D., Gannon, M.C., Garcia-Prats, J.A., Gokulakrishnan, G., Gowda, S.H., Hair, A.B., Johnson, K.E., Joseph, C., King, A., Lingappan K., Mandy, G., McKee-Garrett, T.M., Osborne S.W., Patel, M.J., Placencia, F.X., Premkumar, M.H., Rhee, C.J., Shivanna, B., Speer, M.E.

The 'Guidelines' were created to help neonatology fellows, pediatric house officers, and others at Baylor College of Medicine affiliated hospitals with the usual routines followed in caring for common problems encountered in the care of neonates. These guidelines are reviewed and revised annually (or more frequently as necessary) by the Section of Neonatology following two levels of peer review of the published medical literature and state of the art as practiced elsewhere in the country. Where appropriate, national guidelines or reference to peer-reviewed scientific investigations are cited to help in the decision-making process; regional traits unique to the southeast Texas patient population are used when appropriate.

The Guidelines document is copyrighted and is intended for use by authorized medical personnel at BCM-affiliated hospitals only. With the vision of improving neonatal care and outcomes globally, the Guidelines document is being made available to all who desire it. You may obtain a free copy of the document for your own personal use by clicking the link below, if you agree not to modify, copy, or distribute the document.

Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of Neonatal Respiratory Diseases

Content

Thomas N. Hansen, M.D., and Leonard E. Weisman, M.D., Editors. Handbooks in Health Care Co., 2002, 3rdedition, 301 pages.

An explosion of new information about the pathophysiologic processes involved in diseases of the respiratory system of the newborn has led to improved treatments, such as surfactant replacement, that have markedly reduced morbidity and mortality in this vulnerable population.

The third edition of this book reviews the epidemiology, pathophysiology, presentation, management, and outcomes for respiratory disorders affecting the newborn, and has updated reviews of pulmonary physiology, ventilatory and non-ventilatory management of respiratory distress. Supportive care that is necessary to optimize outcome is emphasized through sections on nutritional and gastrointestinal support, communications with parents, ethical consideration, and discharge planning.
