About this book


Current Perinatology, II, explores the most recent major research techniques utilized in the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of the high-risk mother and her newborn. The volume should be a major reference for pediatricians, perinatologists, and neonatologists, as well as for nurses and allied health personnel closely involved with the care of the high-risk mother, fetus, and newborn. Topics presented include perinatal Doppler; Doppler echocardiography of the human fetus; invasive fetal assessment by fetal blood sampling; prediction, prevention, and treatment of preterm labor; percutaneous umbilical blood sampling and intravascular fetal therapy; current and future perspectives for fetal genetic diagnosis; current concepts of substance abuse during pregnancy; newer methods of diagnosis and treatment of neonatal sepsis; clinical applications of neonatal pulmonary function testing; and current management of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Discussions of stabilization and transportation of the critically ill obstetric patient and of pain management in the neonatal intensive care unit will be of interest to both physicians and nurses.
