About this book


PRINCIPLES OF PERINATAL-NEONATAL METABOLISM, SECOND EDITION assembles a stellar international group of contributors to examine the various aspects of metabolism in the human adult during pregnancy, in the fetus, and in the newborn. Completely updated and revised with more than 17 new chapters, the book is divided into five sections: 1) Methodology and General Principles; 2) Maternal Metabolism During Pregnancy; 3) Fetal-Placental Metabolism; 4) Organ Specific Metabolism During the Perinatal Period; 5) Neonatal Metabolism. New to the second edition are discussions of methodologies using molecular biology technqiues, expanded coverage of central nervous system metabolism, and an entirely new section on organ-specific metabolism that is organized by organ-system. A must for every physician who cares for the pregnant patient and her child. From reviews of the critically acclaimed first edition: "an incredible amount of information...of utmost value not only to the basic investigator but also to the clinician." - JAMA "a first-rate reference textbook that should be on the shelves of every institution that provides care for the pregnant women or her children" - NEJM "I know of no other volume in which these important topics are integrated into a single text...I enthusiastically recommend it as a valuable reference to researchers, clinicians, fellows, and students." - TEM
