Evidence-Based Neonatal Infections is expertly written by David Isaacs, an experienced author renowned for his knowledge in both pediatric infections and evidence-based medicine. It critically analyses the evidence for decision making in neonatal infections. Evidence-Based Neonatal Infections * The first evidence-based text on neonatal infections * Provides practical guidance where evidence is poor * Complements David Isaacs Evidence-Based Pediatric Infectious Diseases (9781405148580) Practical and evidence-based, Evidence-Based Neonatal Infections is designed to help the clinician with day-to-day decisions on the care of newborn babies with possible, probable or proven infections. It considers clinical questions relevant to neonatologists, analysing the evidence carefully and providing recommendations for optimum management of neonatal infectious diseases, whilst reflecting on: * Efficacy and safety * Antibiotic resistance * Cost effectiveness * Adverse effects * Ethical considerations Evidence-Based Neonatal Infections provides a unique reference for neonatologists, pediatricians, trainees, specialist nurses; general practitioners, microbiologists, infection control doctors, and all staff in neonatal units.
CONGENITAL AND PERINATAL INFECTIONS provides a concise and clinically-oriented primer on the congenital and perinatal infections likely to present in clinical practice. Written with the busy clinician in mind, it combines easy accessibility with state-of-the-art information on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital and perinatal infections.
Eschewing the notion that congenital and perinatal infections only encompass agents from the TORCH group of pathogens, this volume offers comprehensive information on the spectrum of viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections that can manifest in mother or child. Combined with its brevity and emphasis on clinical management, CONGENITAL AND PERINATAL INFECTIONS is a definitive new guide to understanding this challenging group of infections.

19.The Outcome of Neonatal Intensive Care
There are approximately 4 million newborns annually in the United States, including 400,000 infants born preterm. This care occurs in nurseries of all acuity levels, sizes, and regions across the country and is provided by a variety of providers, including pediatricians, family practice doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. The most common complication during the newborn period is suspected or proven infection – either those acquired during the delivery itself or before delivery in the womb. Indeed, 4 of the 8 most commonly-prescribed medications in newborns annually are antibiotics. Therefore, these providers must all be knowledgeable about the clinical presentation, epidemiology, and approach to diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neonatal infections. However, many of these nurseries do not have convenient access to pediatric infectious disease consultation or support, and would benefit from a convenient reference guide.
This book effectively and succinctly covers the pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, approach to diagnosis and treatment, and important aspects of preventative care for the most frequently encountered neonatal and congenital infections. The first section discusses common neonatal infections (i.e., those acquired during or after delivery), including sepsis, meningitis, pneumonia, and other focal infections. The second section covers the most frequently encountered congenital infections (i.e., those acquired via the placenta while the fetus is still in-utero). Finally, the concluding section discusses the basics of infection prevention in the nursery setting, including general principles of infection prevention, how to apply those principles to families, and how to manage a suspected outbreak of infection within a nursery.
This book is a unique contribution to the field. Existing texts such as the AAP Red Book fold neonatal infections in within chapters on a given pathogen, but the information is difficult to find and access quickly. By covering neonatal and congenital infections thoroughly while still keeping each section clear and concise, this Handbook will be a valuable resource for the busy nursery provider.
