Contemporary Diagnosis and Management
of Neonatal Respiratory Diseases ^
Thomas N. Hansen, M.D., and Leonard E. Weisman, M.D., Editors. Handbooks in Health Care Co., 2002, 3rd edition, 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.
