As the first text of its kind, Care of the Well Newborn by B.J. Snell and Sandra L Gardner focuses on care of the term newborn for the first month of life. In a new review, Sherita K. Etheridge, MSN, from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, writing for Doody's Review Service calls it,
"...a very useful reference specific to newborns. It offers more detailed information for this population than most maternal-child books."
Written by distinguished experts in the field, Care of the Well Newborn teaches students and professionals how and what to assess in the care of the nonverbal newborn, while also providing criteria for recognizing deviations from normal and strategies for managing complications that arise. It provides easily accessible information on evidence-based neonatal care that follows current guidelines, standards, and recommendations.
