Guha’s Neonatology: Principles and Practice

by Dipak K Guha, Arvind Saili, Swarnarekha Bhat, Arvind Shenoi

This book ‘Neonatology Principles and Practice’ is useful for postgraduate students, budding neonatologists, teachers, practising neonatologists and doctors dealing in child health from district hospital level to smaller centres and nursing homes. The emphasis in each of the chapters dealing with neonatal problems is on pathophysiology, pathogenesis and recent advances in addition to practical approach and management. The book has been expanded to include 20 more new chapters and has now 92 chapters. The contributors have increased from 42 to 85 of which dozen authors are from USA and UK with practical experience in developing countries. This book is unique in that it has been written specifically for developing countries, providing information on essential newborn care alongside state-of-the-art research on systemic disorders of the newborn. New chapters on appropriate technology, assessment and accountability, distance learning and the role of the internet in medicine reflect the changing environment of neonatal medicine. The history of India’s own neonatal movement, as described in this book, demonstrates that a community-based approach is vital, coupled with the continued development of technical expertise and knowledge. Many of the new chapters will be of immense importance for newborn care in India and developing countries and such informations are unlikely to be available in a single reference textbook anywhere.
