Neonatal Formulary

Drug Use in Pregnancy and the First Year of Life

Eighth Edition

Sean Ainsworth

  • Bringing together a mix of pharmacological and clinical knowledge, Neonatal Formulary is an essential resource for the neonatal and paediatric ward
  • This book covers the period from conception through pregnancy and beyond with effects of administration of medicines to both mother and baby
  • The drug monographs are up-to-date, extensively referenced and linked to the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews to provide evidence-based use of medicines
  • This unique title details the effects of excipients (i.e. the forgotten ingredients in medicines) which can have the potential for harm in the young or premature baby
  • Online material that is continuoulsy updated complements the print edition, making this title a living resource that presents the latest research in the field

New to this Edition:

  • This new edition has expanded the numbers of drugs covered and also incorporated newer techniques for administration e.g. surfactants being given to spontaneously breathing babies using minimally invasive techniques
  • New analytical techniques are now allowing a greater analysis of the pharmacokinetics of medicines in young and premature infants that previously was not available. These allow optimisation of the dosing regimens, maximising benefit whilst reducing risks.
