Review by Allison Martin

Newborn Intensive Care: What Every Parent Needs to Know, edited by Jeanette Zaichkin, is an encyclopedic guide to the care given to your premature baby while in neonatal intensive care. Newborn Intensive Care educates and supports preemie parents from the time you enter the world of the neonatal intensive care through the time of transition to caring for your preemie at home. This comprehensive reference is something you will turn to again and again, to understand medical events and techniques that your preemie may encounter while in neonatal intensive care.

Always a great reference, this third edition of Newborn Intensive Care is outstanding. A cadre of experienced, highly qualified doctors, university professors, nurse practitioners, nurses, and social workers describe the potential difficulties your prematurely born infant may encounter, with possible solutions and outcomes. Despite the diversity of writers, movement from topic to topic is well coordinated and the tone of compassionate education remains consistent through out the volume. This approach enhances readability while broadening the scope of issues related to neonatal infant care.

Key topics include parenting and feeding your baby while in neonatal intensive care; medical problems associated with premature birth; personal, equipment, procedures and medication you may encounter in the neonatal intensive care unit and after; and in-depth guidance for your transition to caring for your preemie at home. Each chapter is comprehensive and authoritative. The modern format with bold section headings and concise paragraphs, accompanied by numerous illustrations, graphs and charts make it useful and very readable.

This is a top notch introduction to the world of preemie care and should be available to every parent coping with premature birth of their baby or babies. Every hospital should have a copy available for preemie parents! If yours doesn't have a copy, encourage them to get one and buy a copy for yourself.
