Any input on good Neonatology/NICU textbooks and/or handbooks on an intern/resident level? It's time to use my holiday gift certificates to good use.

I generally recommend that residents who want a book look at:

Neonatology : Management, Procedures, On-Call Problems, Diseases, Drugs (LANGE Clinical Science)
by Tricia, Lacy Gomella (Editor), M. Douglas Cunningham, Fabien G. Eyal, as a pocketbook that is very complete for resident use.

Care of the High-risk neonate by Klaus and Fanaroff is a more classic textbook but I think most residents will do better with the other book.

I'm going to be doing a sub-internship in the NICU this summer - would you also recommend this text (or perhaps others?) for a 4th year student?

Let me also give my props to the Gomella book. Very solid book. Also, a "Red Book " for infectious disease is a must but DON'T BUY IT, every NICU has one.

Has anyone used "Fetal and Neonatal Secrets"? It presents info in a queston/answer format so may not be as useful as a study text, but may be good for reading during down-time. ? Any comments would be appreciated.

yes it's an interesting read. I used it as one of my review books for my neonatal boards actually.

dittos to the recommendation for Gomella's book. Very concise
