This book is designed to help you give the best advice and support to your teenager who wants to go to a British university. All the key elements of a university education are covered, from choosing the right course, understanding university league tables and getting a place, right through to maximising opportunities after graduation. We consider all the critical events where your support and informed advice can be vital and help you to spot when things are going right and when they are not. It's not about holding your child's hand. It's about giving sound advice - an arm around the shoulder - to allow your child to mature at university, to stay on course for a good degree, and to forge the way to a successful career. The authors are experienced university staff who have drawn on the knowledge they have gained as tutors, as teachers, and as parents themselves. Clearly laid out and fully illustrated by case studies, this book is your guide to your kids' success at university.

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Neonatology is a sub-speciality of paediatrics devoted to the care of the newborn infant. The wider care of the newborn infant includes not only the sick neonate but also the well newborn infant. The practice of neonatology is generally limited to specialist neonatal units and nurseries – ranging from those nurseries that deal with the well newborn infant to neonatal intensive care units. The care of the newborn infant is delivered by full time neonatologists, visiting medical officer neonatologists, paediatric registrars, senior house officers, nurses holding neonatal certificates, midwives and JMO’s.
The book has been specifically written, formatted and designed to be carried whilst on duty, and contains information that staff in neonatal units will need during the course of their day – especially that information required often, but not yet committed to memory. This information requires continual reinforcement and in a busy unit there is no time to consult other references such as textbooks or computer based information.Portable clinical referenceCovers procedures such as peripheral IV, umbilical arterial and venous catheter insertion, central venous line insertion and peripheral IA line insertionCoverage of standard infusions of dopamine, dobutamine, morphine and midazolam, insulin and PGE1Ready Reckoner table, by infant birthweight, for size of ETTs and umbilical lines (usage and insertion), and common drug and infusion dosagesResuscitation and infection algorithms included
