Revised and updated by a new editorial team, the Sixth Edition of this text will remain the leading reference on the clinical care of the newborn. It provides complete, authoritative information on the biology of the newborn and the pathophysiology and management of diseases during the neonatal period.

This edition has five new chapters on the role of telemedicine in neonatology, the impact of labor and delivery on the fetus, fetal determinants of adult disease, breast feeding, and control of breathing and apnea. Also included is a full-color insert illustrating key signs and symptoms, selected imaging techniques, and dermatologic conditions.
