There is an ever-increasing interest in the basic physiology of neonatal pulmonary disease. Without understanding it one cannot provide optimal care of the neonate in respiratory distress. During the last two decades, a great deal has been learned about neonatal pulmonary physiology and disease. However, clinical application of acquired knowledge has begun to occur only recently. Although information regarding neonatal repiratory care has been published extensively in various journals and symposia, there is a need for a book completely devoted to the topic with particular emphasis on the practical aspects of this developing area of medicine.

The editors of Neonatal Pulmonary Care have successfully put together a compendium of topics related to the respiratory care of the newborn. The book offers concise, lucid descriptions of basic physiology and then goes on to deal with clinical diagnosis, the evaluation of pulmonary function, and the roentgenographic description of pulmonary insufficiency.
