Beyond the NICU: Comprehensive Care of the High-Risk Infant

McGraw Hill Professional
1

Improve medical and developmental outcomes in high-risk infants with evidence-based management strategies

Beyond the NICU is the first book to deliver practical, evidence-based strategies for healthcare providers caring for the NICU graduate during convalescence and after discharge. It is a guide to the successful transition of a high-risk infant from intensive care to the intermediate-level nursery, and then, to help the child thrive outside of the hospital in a home environment.

To advance the standard of care of these vulnerable patients, Beyond the NICU draws together clinically focused guidelines to improve patient outcomes and reduce hospital readmissions. Drawing on an international team of respected authorities, Beyond the NICU provides the strategies necessary to ensure the success of convalescing NICU graduates in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

A complete, authoritative guide to the management and treatment of neonatal jaundice

Care of the Jaundiced Neonate focuses exclusively on the scientific underpinnings of jaundice, as well as the care of the jaundiced neonate. Edited by three of the field’s most respected neonatal care experts, the book uniquely explains how the imbalance between bilirubin production and elimination leads to jaundice—and that hazardous levels of unconjugated bilirubin can cause kernicterus, or brain damage. In addition, you’ll find the most current and clinically relevant perspectives on the physiology, genetics, and treatment of neonatal jaundice and related hemolytic conditions.

FEATURES

Covers all aspects of neonatal jaundice—from the biochemistry of bilirubin production to kernicterus Begins with an in-depth examination of the complex gene-environment interactions of bilirubin-induced neurotoxicity and its role in neonatal jaundice Surveys bilirubin production and measurement, its various fractions, and the metabolism and transport of bilirubin Selected chapters highlight the physiology and epidemiology of neonatal unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia; bilirubin toxicity; prevention, screening, and postnatal management; phototherapy and other treatments; and prevention-related public policy. Concluding chapter provides an overview of the key issues surrounding the incidence of neonatal jaundice in low-middle income countries Includes informative review of risk assessment and treatment with phototherapy and other modalities provide key approaches to the effective clinical management of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
