This book provides a highly practical atlas on the use of
echocardiography by the neonatologist in the management of the
neonate. Whilst recognising the limitations of the non-specialist
in echocardiography, the lavish use of illustrations and practical
advice will provide an excellent companion to those being trained
in and applying this technique in the special care baby unit.
