Neonatal care also requires significant management in other areas, such as nutrition, ECMO, cooling, and infection control.
In this section, read more about other practice areas related to the health of premature newborn infants. You can also submit your own content if you have information and resources that would be helpful to other caregivers.

Title: Neonatal Nutrition and Metabolism (Hardcover)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press, 2 edition (8/14/2006)
Description: Neonatal nutrition has a pivotal role in normal child development and is of even greater importance in the sick or premature neonate. This substantially revised and updated new edition includes a comprehensive account of the basic science, metabolism and nutritional requirements of the neonate, and a greatly expanded number of chapters dealing in depth with clinical issues ranging from IUGR, intravenous feeding, nutritional therapies for inborn errors of metabolism and care of the neonatal surgical patient. Evolving from these scientific and clinical aspects, the volume highlights the important long-term effects of fetal and neonatal growth on health in later life.
Title: and Neonatal Critical Care Transport (Paperback)
Publisher: BMJ Books, 1 edition (April 25, 2003)
Description: Specialised units for critically ill children and infants are concentrated in the major hospitals. This invaluable practical guide covers the management of children in a critical condition who have been admitted to a general hospital and will need safe transfer to a special unit. With tertiary care becoming ever more centralised, the need for clear information on safe transport is becoming increasingly important.
