newborn screening systems the complete perspective

bradley mcpherson

ensuring optimal health for newborns is a concern shared by a whole host of medical and allied health professionals. clinicians, researchers, and policymakers from a diverse range of specialties regularly engage in collaborative practice in the first stage of attaining this goal; in the early detection of newborn diseases and disorders. in order to provide the highest quality of service, the audiologist, for example, must not only be well versed in hearing screening systems, but also in genetic screening, as the new frontier of screening brings an amalgamation of these previously distinct systems. until now, for those working/studying in the domain of neonatal health, there has been no single, up-to-date, all-inclusive information source on newborn screening programs. this title, by drawing on the knowledge of twenty clinical and research experts from varying fields, provides the only comprehensive text that details the entire collection of screening programs routinely delivered to newborns.beginning chapters outline preliminary information applicable to all screening systems, for instance, the history and principles of screening, ethical and economic debates, along with thorough description of the conditions routinely screened for.
following are highly detailed chapters dedicated to the specific neonatal screening programs currently in use, as well as complimenting chapters that provide future directions for each field. additional discussion of topical issues, such as the incorporation of genetic counseling into screening programs, optimal communication with families, and the advent of integrated, non-discipline specific, national data systems, are contained in the final chapters. this title assists the student in viewing their future neonatal clients as whole entities and in understanding the role of the other professionals with whom they shall closely interact. it allows the clinician to easily absorb the activities of screening programs on an international level, and the researcher to consider developments, outside of their immediate field, that may impact on their own research allows the policymaker to make enlightened decisions concerning the development of newborn screening programs in their country. in fact, any reader with a rudimentary knowledge of pediatric health and an interest in newborn screening will find this title to be of invaluable worth.

perinatal cardiology a multidisciplinary approach

p. syamasundar rao; dharmapuri vidyasagar
perinatal cardiology is an important developing field as high quality ultrasound is used on a growing number of pregnant women, and diagnosis prior to birth will become a more common occurrence. in addition, highly sensitive noninvasive diagnostic tools, advances in neonatal care and anesthesia, evolution of transcatheter interventional procedures and performance of complicated surgical procedures in the neonate and young infant have advanced to such an extent that almost all congenital cardiac defects can be diagnosed and “corrected.” illustrated with over 500 figures, this book by leaders in the fields of pediatric cardiology, neonatology, pediatric cardiovascular surgery and interventional pediatric cardiology focuses on congenital heart defect issues during the perinatal period: prenatal (before birth) and neonatal (first month after birth). this book discusses the three major areas of perinatal cardiology:
1. provides an overview of advances in perinatology, neonatology, cardiology and cardiac surgery in making early diagnosis and offering treatment options for patients with chd.
2. the concept of the multidisciplinary approach to managing infants with congenital cardiac lesion.
3. evidence-based therapeutic approaches to successfully treat the fetus and the newborn with congenital cardiac lesions.

neonatal sepsis ecab

by n b mathur (editor)
neonatal sepsis contributes significantly to neonatal morbidity and mortality. the incidence of neonatal sepsis as per national neonatal perinatal database (nnpd 2002-2003) is 30 per 1,000 live births among intramural neonates. among extramural neonates, sepsis accounts for nearly 40% of admissions to the nicu. it accounts for 18% of neonatal mortality among intramural neonates and nearly 40% of mortality among extramural neonates. the incidence and mortality is much higher in vlbw neonates as compared to term neonates.

neonatal sepsis is a clinical syndrome characterized by systemic signs of infection and accompanied by bacteremia in the first month of life. once bacteria gains access to the bloodstream, mechanisms are activated by the host to eliminate it. usually, the bacteria are efficiently cleared by the monocyte macrophage system after opsonization by antibody and complement. sometimes, however, a systemic inflammatory response syndrome is established and can progress independently of the original infection. in many patients with sepsis, it is difficult to document a bacterial cause. the term “systemic inflammatory response syndrome” includes several stages of infection ranging from sepsis, sepsis syndrome, and early septic shock to refractory septic shock, which can eventuate in multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (mods) and death.

prevention of sepsis is probably the best management strategy as far as neonatal sepsis is concerned. strategies include prevention of early-onset sepsis and prevention of late-onset sepsis. for the former, appropriate obstetric care is the key; for the latter, decreasing interventions, promoting breast feeding, and maintaining proper hand hygiene are essential.

neonatology case based review

by dara brodsky, elizabeth g doherty

as a pediatric subspecialty, neonatology poses a special challenge for residents: rotations are short, but care for preterm and critically ill patients is complex. despite residents brief exposure to neonatology, they’re expected to have a good understanding of key concepts, diagnoses and therapies when they sit for the boards. attendings often struggle with how best to teach these concepts, because residents don’t always have exposure to the range of babies they need to see to have a good foundation in this area. neonatology case-based review addresses this information gap by presenting 112 case-based multiple-choice questions in neonatology.  cases are mapped to the american board of pediatrics content specifications for pediatric residents; the review is appropriate for residents entering their neonatology rotation, as an introduction to the subspecialty, and again as they study for their boards.  answers include rationales so that the review is a comprehensive teaching guide for attendings as well.

this title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the united states. neonatology is a sub-speciality of paediatrics devoted to the care of the newborn infant. the wider care of the newborn infant includes not only the sick neonate but also the well newborn infant. the practice of neonatology is generally limited to specialist neonatal units and nurseries – ranging from those nurseries that deal with the well newborn infant to neonatal intensive care units. the care of the newborn infant is delivered by full time neonatologists, visiting medical officer neonatologists, paediatric registrars, senior house officers, nurses holding neonatal certificates, midwives and jmo’s.
the book has been specifically written, formatted and designed to be carried whilst on duty, and contains information that staff in neonatal units will need during the course of their day – especially that information required often, but not yet committed to memory. this information requires continual reinforcement and in a busy unit there is no time to consult other references such as textbooks or computer based information.

  • portable clinical reference
  • covers procedures such as peripheral iv, umbilical arterial and venous catheter insertion, central venous line insertion and peripheral ia line insertion
  • coverage of standard infusions of dopamine, dobutamine, morphine and midazolam, insulin and pge1
  • ready reckoner table, by infant birthweight, for size of etts and umbilical lines (usage and insertion), and common drug and infusion dosages
  • resuscitation and infection algorithms included

the fifth edition of this highly successful and well-regarded book continues to provide those working in neonatal intensive care units with precise instructions on the diagnosis and management of common neonatal problems. this edition has been extensively updated and revised, while retaining the background physiology, key references, and diagrams that made previous editions so successful.

several new chapters have been added, including the subjects of fetal medicine, antenatal diagnosis, and obstetrics for the neonatologist. using a clear, accessible style, this edition features discussions of evidence-based medicine and the introduction of additional easy-to-digest lists. the text has been made more internationally applicable, including a re-focus of the chapter on organization of neonatal care away from uk-specific admission criteria and more towards general reasons for admitting a baby to the intensive care ward.

a manual for neonatal intensive care provides invaluable guidance for trainees in pediatrics, neonatology, and neonatal nursing and forms a useful ready-reference for the practicing pediatrician and nurse.

  • provides concise, up-to-date information in an accessible style on all aspects of neonatal intensive care
  • introduces evidence-based medicine to enable readers to evaluate the advice given
  • emphasizes international relevance
  • includes key points in boxes to aid in rapid assimilation of information

worldwide more than one million babies die annually from perinatal asphyxia and its associated complications such as neonatal encephalopathy – one of the major causes of cerebral palsy and cognitive deficiencies in children aside from prematurity. cooling the head – or the entire body – minimizes neuronal death, enabling the neonatal brain to be ‘rescued’ thus greatly improving developmental outcomes. hypothermic neural rescue therapy has revolutionized the treatment of this condition and is a major recent achievement in neonatal medicine. this landmark book provides a brief scientific underpinning of hypothermic neural rescue therapy and lays out the evidence base for good practice. internationally recognized authorities give practical advice, drawn from personal experience, on how to deliver hypothermia in the neonatal intensive care unit. a valuable addition to any neonatal unit, this is essential reading for neonatologists, neonatal nurses and paediatric neurologists.

  • contains strong scientific background to the technique
  • gives practical advice for those wishing to establish the technique in their unit
  • written and edited by international authorities
