Great reference for the iPad. I am currently in the NICU and this publication has helped me survive my time on the service. Very easy to navigate as well.
This neo book by Gomella is awesome. I had the 5th and 6th editions that somehhow walked out of my office. These books are very informative and help nurses study for their national certification.
Have used this reference book for years. It continues to deliver up-to-date information. Thankful now that it is on Kindle reader.
It’s what I use to get answers quickly when inside NICU. The topics are clear and concise. Great as review material.
