Caring for newborns and infants in the first year of life can be anxiety-provoking and challenging, especially for the emergency physician. This book was designed to address the most common complaints that an emergency provider may have to evaluate and treat.
Infant and Neonatal Emergencies is divided into three sections for quick access to a variety of medical conditions. Section I covers the basics of neonate care in the emergency room and includes the general exam, airway management, and sedation. Section II focuses on specific common complaints, such as failure to thrive, fever, and seizures. Section III covers management of specific systems, including cardiology, dermatology, and toxicology. The appendices include handy pediatric formulas, immunization schedules, and easy-to-use algorithms and tables. This book will serve as a practical resource for a wide range of health providers, from medical students, residents, and Fellows to attending physicians.
