"Every chapter contains a wealth of information compiled in a clear and readable fashion. that most readers will find novel and many interesting tidbits that will be new even to experienced clinicians...This is a well-written, easy-to-use reference book that fills a well-defined need. It is interesting enough to read straight through but well organized enough to read a chapter at a time." nicu.org Reviews Forum, August 2009
"This is a unique resource in a wonderful series of books that examine many aspects of neonatal care...this book does live up to its subtitle of trying to review major questions and controversies in neonatal pulmonary care. It does so in greater depth than any standard textbook and thus will be a great addition to the libraries of practicing neonatal healthcare providers." - Jay P. Goldsmith, MD(Tulane University School of Medicine) Doody 4 star review!
