Neonatal nurses are faced with a tremendous need for accurate, comprehensive information while in the clinical setting. Kenner and Lott's new book, Neonatal Nursing Handbook is designed to meet these needs by providing accessible information to assist these practitioners in their clinical decision-making and critical thinking. The new book also provides an excellent complementary reference to Kenner & Lott's Comprehensive Neonatal Nursing: A Physiologic Perspective, 3rd Edition. This handbook is organized primarily by body systems and includes a brief definition of the neonatal problem, followed by diagnostic tests and labs, differential diagnosis where appropriate, and then an algorithm to aid in the decision making process. The overall format is brief outlined and bulleted information wherever possible.
