    This one-of-a-kind learning resource for neonatal nurse practitioner/clinical nurse specialist students, in both academic and clinical settings, uses complex case studies to reinforce the best practices in treating vulnerable neonatal patients. Based on applications and outcomes, the case study approach develops critical thinking and clinical decision making and fosters effective role transition in practice-based disciplines. Authored by leading neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) educators, these multifaceted, unfolding case studies address and synthesize the most important content covered throughout the NNP curriculum. Additional audiences for this book include interprofessional staff working in Level II and Level III nursery settings. Beginning with case studies for identifying maternal risk factors, and culminating in case studies for communicating with parents, this text shows a holistic view of caring for neonatal patients. Chapters organized by body system address diseases and disorders and prompt the reader for diagnosis and treatment. Progressing from basic to complex, case studies include objectives, clinical pearls, and critical thinking questions. A robust instructor's toolkit contains pedagogical strategies for facilitating online discussion, chapter conclusion quizzes, a variety of simulation experiences, and a downloadable image bank is available. -- Provided by publisher.

    This book addresses the severe knowledge deficit in peripheral nerve amongst neurosurgeons, however this topic represents an integral part of the oral board examination. The book employs a case based approach with the highest-yield scenarios for oral boards, primarily focusing on nerve entrapments, trauma and tumors. Thanks to its question and answer format, the reader is encouraged to think about the cases and questions as if taking the real exam before they check the answers. The work also includes common pitfalls, a section on nerve examinations including video recordings, and a section on important clinical findings that should be diagnosed from the picture. The book not only serves neurosurgeons, but also plastic surgeons, orthopedists, and neurologists.

    An ideal resource for board exam preparation, this review distills the essentials of neurosurgery in a user-friendly question and answer format. Divided into three main sections, this text presents a comprehensive collection of cases covering intracranial pathology, spinal and peripheral nerve pathology, and neurology. Each chapter opens by detailing the clinical presentation of a problem frequently encountered in everyday practice followed by a list of questions and answers designed to test the reader's knowledge of diagnostic techniques, imaging, surgical indications, treatment options, potential complications, and outcomes. This book is an indispensable tool for neurosurgeons, residents, and fellows preparing for their oral board or recertification examinations. With its highly accessible presentation, this book will also be a valuable refresher for clinicians and a useful reference for students preparing for rounds.

    "Nursing Care of the Woman with Diabetes in Pregnancy, AWHONN’s first evidence-based clinical practice guideline addressing diabetes, provides comprehensive recommendations for nurses who care for women with diabetes-- types 1 or 2 and gestational diabetes (A1 or A2)--during pregnancy, labor and postpartum, and their babies. Included are recommendations for blood glucose targets and monitoring in pregnancy, intravenous insulin administration during labor, and neonatal hypoglycemia and feeding guidelines. The guideline will be invaluable for nurses, midwives, and nurse-practitioners working in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Recommendations for women with or at risk for diabetes before and between pregnancy (pre and interconception care) are also addressed, including guidelines for women who have had bariatric surgery. The introduction to the guideline covers prediabetes, the physiology of glucose metabolism in pregnancy, and summarizes key differences in national recommendations for diagnosing diabetes in pregnancy"--Publisher's description.
