  • Details

Part of the popular Ten Teachers series, Care of the Newborn by Ten Teachers presents a detailed account of care of the normal neonate, including the minor health problems that midwives are expected to deal with on a daily basis, and provides care and treatment strategies for the neonate and family.

The emphasis of the book is on normal neonatal care with deviations from the normal threaded throughout the book, including recognition, causes, treatments and care. Taking a holistic approach, each chapter is underpinned by theory and practice, with professional guidance rules and codes for midwives made explicit throughout. Problems covered include: hereditary problems and genetics, infant feeding, skin care, thermal care, care of the jaundiced baby, infections, respiratory problems, Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome and birth injury.

This is an essential text for all diploma and degree student midwives, as well as those on post-qualifying courses in neonatal care and midwives taking return to practice courses. It is also a useful reference for qualified midwives, student nurses on the child branch and neonatal nurses.
