|| This authoritative and comprehensive text is written by an internationally renowned group of medical experts of Chinese ethnic origin from the mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and six other countries. As a scientific and clinically practical review of current knowledge on medical care of normal and high-risk infants, this book covers the essentials of modern neonatal medicine. Conditions which are common or life-threatening have been selected for detailed description, while sufficient information is provided on uncommon or less serious problems to help gain an understanding of how they are best managed. A special emphasis has been put on describing experiences which are unique to Chinese infants. The 91 chapters reflect the personal interest and experience of the 77 contributors whose contemporary view and practical approach should prove useful for postgraduate trainees and specialists wishing to keep themselves up to date in neonatal medicine.
