Synopsis

A complete, authoritative guide to the management and treatment of neonatal jaundice



Care of the Jaundiced Neonate focuses exclusively on the scientific underpinnings of jaundice, as well as the care of the jaundiced neonate. Edited by three of the field's most respected neonatal care experts, the book uniquely explains how the imbalance between bilirubin production and elimination leads to jaundice-and that hazardous levels of unconjugated bilirubin can cause kernicterus, or brain damage. In addition, you'll find the most current and clinically relevant perspectives on the physiology, genetics, and treatment of neonatal jaundice and related hemolytic conditions.



FEATURES

Concluding chapter provides an overview of the key issues surrounding the incidence of neonatal jaundice in low-middle income countriesIncludes informative review of risk assessment and treatment with phototherapy and other modalities provide key approaches to the effective clinical management of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia
