About this title


Containing the valuable insights of a highly regarded primary care physician, this fully updated sixth edition of this well-established textbook is suitable for nurses, medical students, doctors, and health care administrators who manage medical facilities in Africa. It outlines a method for the thorough physical and neurological examination of the newborn and addresses the parents’ first question “is our baby normal?” It also explains the importance of distinguishing the healthy newborn from the one who is sick and contains numerous photographs to explain various conditions in more detail. Included in this new edition are explanations of the latest methods of care where a gentle approach is used and the nurse is pivotal. It provides the most recent information on infection and notes the reduction of HIV transmission from mother to child. Prolonged breast feeding is encouraged and several methods of breast milk pasteurization are described. It recommends the latest approach to care of premature infants and examines less common disorders that can occur. Valuable for its focus on less common and rare disorders, this guide contains updated information on recent gene discoveries, particularly in musculoskeletal and skin disorders.
