by Dipak K Guha, Rashmi Guha, Padmapriya Dore

Quite understandably each one of us involved in perinatal care must consider every birth as a medical emergency and gear ourselves to provide appropriate state-of-the-art care at birth. Management requires clinical judgement, technical skill, knowledge of physiological principles and team approach. In this revised second edition, chapters have been reorganized and rewritten with additional new inputs and all the modifications and new guidelines recommended by NRP have been incorporated. Neonatal Asphyxia, Resuscitation and Beyond, Second edition primarily based on NRP guidelines deals with intrauterine and natal physiology, perinatal asphyxia and its management, neonatal resuscitation, resuscitation in the community, organization of follow-up services and pertinent legal issues concerning resuscitation in seven chapters with extensive references. The book has been profusely illustrated with figures and tables for better understanding of the NRP guidelines. Overall objective has been to provide a sound physiological and practical basis for neonatal resuscitation and follow-up care. Those other than specialized in neonatology, care for a vast majority of newly borns. It is for these health care providers, nurses, TBAs, and other personnel involved in newborn care that this book is primarily intended for. The care providers of the newborn will find this book very handy and useful at the time of emergency when even a single second matters in neonatal resuscitation.
