Medical science has experienced significant advances in the care of newborn infants since the first edition of Assisted Ventilation of the Neonate was published more than 30 years ago. One such advance is the clinical introduction of exogenous surfactant replacement, which was first approved for use by the US Food and Drug Administration in 1990, 2 years after the release of the second edition of this invaluable resource. Now in its fifth edition, Assisted Ventilation of the Neonate has been adapted in conjunction with the maturation of the field of neonatology and continues to serve as a principal reference for professionals of that subspecialty as well as for anesthesiologists, respiratory care technicians, and all others involved in the care of these important patients.
