Descripción

Este libro está disponible solamente en inglés.

The birth of a baby is a rewarding, exciting and joyful event. But when everything does not go perfectly, and a baby is born prematurely or with an illness, parents may also feel anxious, confused, sad or angry. They want answers to a multitude of questions about their baby’s condition and what will happen in the coming days, weeks and years. 

This newly revised guidebook gives parents of infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) the detailed information they need to make sense of their baby’s complicated situation. Newborn Intensive Care: What Every Parent Needs to Know, 3rd edition, was originally developed as a guidebook for parents of NICU patients – but it is so content-rich that it has become a popular reference for medical residents and nursing students, public health nurses and social workers, physicians and nurses in community hospitals, and  other medical professionals.

 Experts in neonatal care have contributed to chapters on:

 

  • Who’s who in the NICU and how to work with the team
  • The special health needs of a premature infant
  • Feeding your baby
  • Parenting in the NICU
  • Financial concerns
  • Major medical problems of premature and full-term infants
  • Neonatal surgery
  • Coping with severe disabilities or infant loss
  • Heading home from the NICU
  • Future health and development of the growing child
