The High Risk Newborn

by A Parthasarathy, MKC Nair, Naveen Jain, Srinivas Murki

The major highlight of this book is the attempt to review the relationship of risk factors, the brain damage caused, and neuro-developmental outcome and link the same to NICU management principles. This book focuses on the follow-up in the first two years of postnatal period. Details of specific neurodevelopment disabilities, available elsewhere, have been rightly omitted. This book attempts to organize currently available knowledge on risk factors affecting neurodevelopment, best practices in modifying these risks and explains simple neuro-developmental assessment techniques. It also discusses, in detail the early stimulation program that can be initiated in the neonatal period and management of developmental delay in the first two years, with the ultimate objective of minimizing child hood disability. The emphasis in this book has been in organizing current evidence into simple protocols that can be practiced at all levels of care.
