There have been many important developments in laboratory and clinical practice, and in the UK both Neonatal Units and laboratories have developed networks to ensure consistency of approach and to promote good practice. There have been significant changes in the provision of laboratory services, arising both from a drive for improved efficiency and important technological advances.
As in previous editions the book is intended as a basic guide for junior doctors, laboratory scientists and neonatal nurses - hopefully to enable the consideration, identification and management of common neonatal problems. The text provides brief background information, discussion of the practical aspects of diagnosis and management of references for further detailed reading should a more in depth knowledge be required.
