The field’s most trusted and comprehensive guide to treating common and rare problems in newborns
Gomella’s Neonatology makes it easy to quickly retrieve information and includes sections on procedures and drug administration. The volume of information in this field has exploded over the last several decades and physicians, especially trainees, need a quick, dependable reference to inform their clinical decisions. Compared to other softcover neonatal handbooks, this is my favorite, and it has become the most widely used book in the NICUs that I have visited. It is no longer a small pocket-sized book, but its unique attribute of being both comprehensive and concise makes it the preferred reference in this area. The section of “On-Call” problems is invaluable to residents, and they are now frequently searching for the latest edition in our unit.

“A copy of this reference should be kept readily available in the newborn unit. It is a potent learning tool for NCU students.” — Family Medicine review of an earlier edition
A true essential for nearly three decades, this streamlined reference provides logically organized, quickly retrievable information on basic and advanced management techniques for the neonate. Featuring a convenient outline approach that puts key information at reader’s fingertips, this quick reference covers everything clinicians need to know about on-call neonatal problems, procedures, diseases and disorders, and pharmacology.
