Review: Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician, Fourth Edition by Marsha Walker is “an extensive volume of evidence-based information”

Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician, Fourth EditionIn a new review of Marsha Walker’s Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician: Using the Evidence, Fourth Edition for Clinical Lactation, Heather D. Leopold, RN, LMT, writes that,

“In a world where mothers are often pitted against each other, lactation is particularly contentious as breastfeeding experts, who may or may not be medical professionals, are steadily challenged about the validity of the information they present. We are often called names and told we should stop being so dogmatic. Many times, lactation specialists may not be able to put their finger on specific information they know to be true and instead scramble to find resources.

Marsha Walker, well-respected nurse and lactation consultant, board member of Baby-Friendly USA and Massachusetts Breastfeeding Coalition, has compiled an extensive volume of evidence-based information that puts to rest the argumentation.

Lactation specialists often feel the coldness of presenting solid information to someone with a different understanding, but thankfully, this book pulls the most concerning topics together and provides us with excellent references so it is not ‘us against the world.’”

Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician: Using the Evidence, Fourth Edition is an essential, practical, and award-winning reference guide for clinicians. Using a research-based approach, it includes literature reviews while covering incidence, etiology, risk factors, prevention, prognosis and implications, interventions, expected outcomes, care plans, and clinical algorithms. With a focus on the practical application of evidence-based knowledge, this reference offers a problem-solving approach to help busy clinicians integrate the latest research into everyday clinical practice.

  • Completely updated and revised
  • Includes a new discussion of the vitally important newborn gut microbiome
  • Features new and more effective techniques for addressing breastfeeding barriers, new research, and the latest guidelines

National Nurses Week Celebrates Healthy Nurses

National Nurses WeekIt’s National Nurses Week. Established by the American Nurses Association (ANA) in 1993, National Nurses Week begins on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. This year’s theme is “Nursing: the Balance of Mind, Body, and Spirit.”

Earlier this year, the ANA designated 2017 as the “Year of the Healthy Nurse” to encourage nurses to “eat healthier, be more active, get better sleep, and have more joy.” Why? When nurses are healthier the nation is healthier.

According to the ANA, nurses “struggle with multiple health, safety, and wellness challenges,” including workplace stress, sleep deprivation, obesity, and poor diet. By improving wellness, rest, nutrition, physical activity, quality of life, and safety, nurses have the opportunity to model these behaviors and educate others. The result is quite literally a better and healthier world.

This National Nurses Week, whether you’ve been practicing or teaching for decades, are just starting out, or are still in school, we celebrate you. From everyone at Jones & Bartlett Learning, thank you to all nurses!

International Day of the Midwife Celebrates Partnerships

International Day of the MidwifePlease join us in honoring some of our favorite people– midwives! Today is the International Day of the Midwife (IDM), a celebration of the valuable work that midwives do worldwide. Established by the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM) in 1992, this year’s theme is  “Midwives, Mothers and Families: Partners for Life!”

According to ICM,

“Midwives everywhere understand that by working in partnership with women and their families they can support them to make better decisions about what they need to have a safe and fullling birth. It is evident that midwives deliver more than babies, in many instances they provide comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services and play a critical role in promoting health issues in their communities.”

Jones & Bartlett Learning Publishes a New Edition of the Groundbreaking Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring: The 5-Tier System

Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring, Third EditionWe are excited to announce a new edition of the pioneering Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring: The 5-Tier System by Julian T. Parer, Tekoa L. King, and Tomoaki Ikeda. This essential reference reviews the practice of fetal heart rate monitoring. Beginning with a description of the anatomy of fetal circulation, placental function as a respiratory organ, and acid-base balance, it also presents normal fetal cardiovascular and cerebral metabolism.

The Third Edition:

  • Examines the pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in progressive fetal asphyxia via a review of the seminal animal and human studies conducted in this field
  • Includes a brief summary of fetal heart rate monitoring technology currently used in clinical practice and standard nomenclature for fetal heart rate characteristics
  • Presents variant fetal heart rate patterns and the underlying physiologic mechanisms

Electronic Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring: The 5-Tier System, Third Edition summarizes the research identifying the relationship between specific fetal heart rate patterns and an increasing risk of fetal acidemia, including the effect of deceleration depth, duration, and pattern evolution. It also evaluates the scientific basis that supports management algorithms currently in use and recommends the Parer/Ikeda 5-tier system. This algorithm assigns fetal heart rate patterns to 5 categories based on their progressive risk of fetal acidemia and has been tested in several studies. Clinical management using the 5-tier system is presented in detail.
