This book is intended for use by all healthcare professionals involved in newborn care working at various levels both in the public and private sector. It follows a distinctive pattern of delivering practical information. It comprises three sections including chapters related to departmental organization and routines followed from admission to discharge, problem-based protocols that are developed after extensive literature review, and some important neonatal procedures. It is not designed to give guidelines for the treatment of a ‘diagnosis/condition’ or impart ‘knowledge’ about that particular diagnosis but presents a stepwise approach to the management of ‘problems’ associated with it. Algorithms have been provided to make the stepwise approach easier to follow. As an example, the book will not guide how to treat ‘pneumonia’ but would focus on the treatment of clinical problems associated with pneumonia, such as respiratory failure, hyperthermia, hypoglycemia, infection, etc.
