Years ago, I had a unique opportunity of addressing an august gathering of neonatologists and pediatricians from all over the world at an international conference held in Hong Kong. As I was in the thick of building up a case for enhancing emphasis on clinical scenarios, stood up Prof Brown, a doyen in the field, saying, “Not just that. You have to bank considerably on the actual clinical cases you saw, you are seeing, or you will be seeing, to streamline and refine your management… The errors committed and the strong positives attained become a stepping stone in your clinical delivery of optimal care.” The new book, Clinical Problem Solving in Neonatal Emergencies and Intensive Care, draws its inspiration from this philosophy. Each of the 33 chapters authored by 40 experts in neonatology gets off the ground with a one or more case scenario, focusing on presentation and management of the problem. It is followed by a critical appraisal of the case and developments in its management in brief. The errors, if any, and important therapeutic points are particularly brought to light. Finally, there appears an extensive interactive discussion on the topic as such. In this discussion, such important points that remain elusive in the textbooks receive special attention. Clinical-orientation and practical applicability receive central stage in each and every chapter. In order to enhance the impact of the narration, a large number of illustrations (including Algorithms, Tables, Boxes) stand incorporated. In addition to the core matter, an ‘Abstract with Key Words’ at the outset and ‘Conclusions’ and ‘Take Home Messages’ at the fag-end are given. Also incorporated is ‘Further Reading’ providing some key references for more probing readers. Here’s hoping that the Clinical Problem Solving in Neonatal Emergencies and Intensive Care emerges as a welcome and significant educational treatise for the target readers, especially the postgraduates, residents and upcoming neonatologists.
