Preterm birth is a major challenge in perinatal health care. Most perinatal deaths occur in preterm infants, and preterm birth is an important risk factor for neurological damage, including cerebral palsy. This ABC covers all the latest information on this complex and multidisciplinary area from obstetric issues to immediate care of preterm infants, respiratory complications, and how to provide support to the parents and relatives of the preterm infant.
With its clear explanation and many illustrations, general practitioners, medical students, paediatricians starting their postgraduate training, nurses, and midwives will find ABC of Preterm Birth an excellent reference.
