Thanks for your help. I will let you know how it goes in a few days!oldbearprofessor said:http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=286442
Has everything I know about the topic
Good luck. As a 4th year they are going to be focused on your knowing the data on your baby each day and getting along well with the whole team. Exquisite insights into the relative benefit of HFOV vs conventional ventilation are unlikely to be demanded from you.
Regards and let us know how it goes.
that plus a neofax is all you'll need. the occasional wierd stuff can always be googled.scholes said:i like lange neonatology, 5th ed. by gomella...it is a paperback that can fit into most pockets (fewer pages than a harriet lane but a bit bigger in its length and width)
it is well organized and easy to read
especially good are the first 6 chapters, namely the clinical exam, resp, fluid, and nutrition chapters
then there are small sections on specific problems, procedures, and medications
i think the book is 30-40 bucks or so
Glad it's going well. I tell the residents at the start of each month that I am going to do my best to see that they have fun during the month and focus on learning. They look at me like that's inconceivable in an NICU, but sometimes I succeed. Sometimes the nature of the patients, team, etc or their animosity to the NICU makes it impossible for them to have any fun. They learn regardless.Medical123 said:Well, I just finished my first week of my NICU clerkship. I actually like it.....Therefore, my clerkship director said that his main goal for me is to have fun and learn as much as I can! It is an amazing experience. I have already seen so many things that I never knew existed! I think that this is definitely going to be a very rewarding experience!
