Newly revised and updated, the new 2nd edition updates the science on neonatal
The new 2nd edition recommends a broad evaluation of all potential contributing factors in every case on neonatal encephalopathy, including maternal medical history, obstetric and intrapartum factors, and placental pathology.
This recommendation is a shift from the 2003 report, which focused on determing whether or not a hypoxic-ischemic event was the cause of neonatal encephalopathy.
Includes new sections on:
- Placental Pathology
- Focal Ischemic stroke
- Neonatal interventions
- Patient safety
- Significant advances in neuroimaging
This report will assist the clinician in evaluating a newborn with encephalopathy to assist in defining both the cause and timing.
