Product Description Review From the book reviews: “The purpose is to provide a comprehensive resource with an in-depth review of an area of neonatology that has only been briefly described in other references. … The audience is all healthcare providers who care for neonates and infants including physicians nurses and respiratory therapists as well as the supportive personnel who facilitate transition to home care for infants with chronic airway issues.” (Jay P. Goldsmith Doody’s Book Reviews April 2015) From the Back Cover Disorders of the Neonatal Airway serves as a comprehensive multidisciplinary resource for all practitioners who care for neonates with airway disorders. With the evolution of advances in neonatology and neonatal airway care over the past three decades the survival rate and life expectancy of premature newborns have dramatically increased to well over 50% in 24-25 week gestation infants. Unfortunately survival with long-term intubation has brought a corresponding increase in acquired airway disorders needing collaborative high level neonatal and otolaryngological care. Additionally with the advent of fetal therapy congenital airway disorders now make up a substantial number of neonates with complex airway disorders. Because of this fact there has been increased focus on the multidisciplinary evaluation and management of neonatal airway disorders. The book is organized into three sections: the first focuses on Malformations and Deformations the second focuses on Assessment Evaluation and Treatment and the third discusses Education Simulation and Quality. As one of the only comprehensive resources on the topic Disorders of the Neonatal Airway focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to the neonatal airway. This unique approach makes this reference a must read for practitioners from many disciplines. See all Product Description
