US$ 124.99
This extensively illustrated reference work is designed for health professionals who care for newborn infants including neonatologists, pediatricians, NICU nurses, pediatric neurologists, pediatric surgeons, geneticists, and genetic counselors. It describes the most common malformations and draws the information needed for a full diagnostic evaluation and discussion of treatment options and genetic counseling from many sources. The text also covers minor anomalies, birthmarks and includes dozens of charts of anthropologic measurements, material that is needed in the initial physical examination to describe an infant's physical features. With over 400 photographs and original illustrations, Dr. Holmes has created an authoritative, well organized, and easy to use reference guide to common malformations of the infant, which will become an invaluable tool in hospitals and neonatal clinics across the world. The text is grounded in research gathered from the Active Malformations Surveillance Program conducted since 1972 at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. The program began as a three year study which monitored over 18,155 births and aimed to determine the frequency of many major malformations. The study was expanded to include minor physical features and birth marks. This text includes many never-before published photographs from these studies, as well as other major research findings in this area.
