Quotes, Reviews or Testimonials

"This is the premier reference for neonatal procedures in the field. Other general textbooks or handbooks have brief sections on procedures, but none can compare to the broad coverage and detailed reviews of this book. This should be available in every neonatal unit, and it will be a valuable adjunct to the traditional bedside teaching of procedures."

-- Jay Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine) - Doody's Review

"This is the standard reference in the field of neonatology for the performance of procedures and their complications. It is a must-have for any neonatal unit, especially units in which training of residents, fellows, or practitioners is ongoing."

-- Jay Goldsmith, MD (Tulane University School of Medicine) - Doody's Review


The audience is neonatal healthcare providers, from nurse practitioners and residents to staff physicians and nurses, and the book is written at an appropriate level for all of these potential users.
