Neonatology at a Glance provides a concise and accessible introduction to neonatal medicine for junior doctors, medical students, neonatal nurses and midwives. Following the familiar, easy–to–use at a Glance format, each topic is presented as a double–page spread with key facts accompanied by clear diagrams and illustrations encapsulating all that the students need to know.


This brand new text:


  • Is written by the leading experts in the field.
  • Full–colour comprehensive overview of neonatology including:
    –the preterm infant
    –common neonatal conditions and their management
    –critical care for babies
    –special baby units
    –palliative care and ethical issues
    –practical procedures
  • Is organised according to conditions affecting the infant before birth including foetal medicine, the normal newborn infant, followed by neonatal problems.
  • Includes practical procedures in text and diagram form not usually found in neonatal books.






Neonatology at a Glance will appeal to all junior doctors and clinical medical students undertaking their paediatric attachment and revising for final exams. The book is also suitable for nurses training in child health, nurses in special care baby units, therapists and midwives.

Format: Paperback
this book contains most things about neonatology from a nurse point of view. the book is broken down into sections which are easy to understand and are accompanied by pictures and photographs to help you understand it more. i found it really easy to read. it is great for students as the layout is simple and it doesnt use big medical terms. it is also good for experienced staff to recall the basics to explain to students or to remind them of why something happens etc.

very easy to read book which provides information in a way for even the most distracted person to be able to take in as there are lots of text boxes, diagrams and bullet points. One of the most enjoyable text books around

Neonatology being often seen as a sub-specialty stuck between Obstetrics (prior to birth) and Paediatrics (after birth) is often taught in different ways depending on the medical school you go to. If you are looking for a text that will introduce you to the topic whether it's because you have a particular interest or so that you can bridge the gap between the two specialties then you should certainly consider this title. Being in the 'At a Glance' series this is not a detailed textbook but it is certainly fairly broad in the areas of neonatology that it covers, far more than you'd be expected to know at medical school but nonetheless easy to read!

The advantages in particular are the routine care and key points boxes that can be found interspersed throughout the title. The disadvantage to this reader is that there are not really any self-assessment questions as such and unlike many of the other 'At a Glance' titles in recent years it does not have an accompanying website with downloadable images, interactive cases/questions/notes.

In conclusion I would not call this an essential book for all medical students to consider adding to their personal libraries but if you are interested in either Obstetrics, Paediatrics or Neonatology itself then this is certainly a highly useful text to introduce you to the field.

Intended for the professional, this is written in a very readable way for the novice, and for those who are just interested in the subject in a more general sense.

Really is neonatal at a glance, all the basics with pictures and what to look out for. Would be better if it was a little smaller (its A4 size).

This book fits well into the excellency of the whole 'at a Glance' series. It is concise, yet explicit and provides useful informations regrading basic care of newborns. I recommend this book for any physician, who occasionally has to deal with this age group.
