Completely updated for its Fourth Edition, this atlas provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on procedures performed in the neonatal intensive care nursery. In an easy-to-follow outline format, with more than 450 drawings and clinical photographs, the book presents clear, current information on indications, preparation, technique, precautions, and how to avoid potential complications.
More than 150 of this edition's illustrations are in full color. New chapters cover transcutaneous bilirubin testing, auditory screening, relocation of a dislocated nasal septum, management of natal and neonatal teeth, and lingual frenotomy.
An accompanying DVD (by Alfonso Vargas, III, MD, Maj, ASAF) provides seven videos: umbilical line placement, paracentesis, PICC placement, venous blood draw, endotracheal intubation, endotracheal intubation, part II, and sterile gown and glove. The DVD also includes three animations: exchange transfusion, emergency evacuation of air leaks, and endotracheal intubation.
