Thoroughly revised and updated, the third edition of Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing is a comprehensive, evidence-based text for health professionals caring for sick newborn babies.

Written by and for nurses, this user-friendly text concentrates on the common problems occurring within the neonatal intensive care unit and includes more diagrams, links to online resources, case studies and activities than previously. This accessible and interactive approach enables nurses to recognise, rationalise and remedy these problems using both a multi-systems and an evidence-based approach. Divided into four parts, the book provides an overview of neonatal care, and an in-depth look at the physical and emotional wellbeing of neonate and family, a range of clinical aspects of neonatal care, and key practices and procedures in neonatal care.

It is essential reading for experienced nurses and midwives caring for sick newborn babies within the neonatal intensive care unit, for nurses undertaking qualifications in the specialism of neonatal nursing and for pre-registration students undertaking relevant modules or placements.
