It also presents a range of conditions commonly affecting pre-term infants such as jaundice, renal disorders, and gastrointestinal conditions. Additionally, the book discusses universal issues surrounding infant care, such as transport, nutrition, pain management, and pharmacology. Case studies relevant to the topics under discussion encourage readers to reflect on and assess their own practice. Exam questions throughout the text provide extra support for students.
