Written for novice neonatal nurses and those new to the NICU, this concise, easy-to-use resource delivers all the essentials of daily practice for the care of neonates and their families. Families experience dramatic transformations as roles develop and change during the newborn period. Throughout it all, they rely on the nurse’s expertise, support, and encouragement to learn to care for their child and meet the newborn’s most basic needs.

Fast Facts for the Neonatal Nurse, Second Edition begins with a streamlined yet comprehensive review of normal newborn characteristics. With this foundation, chapters walk through a variety of common and uncommon newborn physiological changes to enable the neonatal nurse to detect any possible complications that warrant additional assessment.
