Reviews and Reader Comments on the 8th Edition of GOMELLA'S NEONATOLOGY
Amazon Reviews of 8th Edition
Gomella’s Neonatology makes it easy to quickly retrieve information and includes sections on procedures and drug administration. The volume of information in this field has exploded over the last several decades and physicians, especially trainees, need a quick, dependable reference to inform their clinical decisions. Compared to other softcover neonatal handbooks, this is my favorite, and it has become the most widely used book in the NICUs that I have visited. It is no longer a small pocket-sized book, but its unique attribute of being both comprehensive and concise makes it the preferred reference in this area. The section of "On-Call" problems is invaluable to residents, and they are now frequently searching for the latest edition in our unit. ―Jay Goldsmith, MD, Doody’s Review Services - 5 Star Review
As a resident rotating through NICU, this book was an amazing comprehensive resource for learning and addressing all sorts of problems. It’s very easy to read and to search for your topic of interest. It even has a section on procedures and pharmacology! I would highly recommend it to any resident interested in or just rotating in NICU.
The delivery was perfect, without problems. Regarding the book itself, it is very complete and clear to read. I just don't give it 5 stars because the font is extremely small, but I believe it's for the purpose of this book to be smaller in volume and more portable.
AMAZON READER COMMENTS ON PREVIOUS EDITIONS
“This is a great resource for medical professionals also starting in the NICU. It provides a handy section about on call problems for easy reference. I've bought several NICU books and this one is the most helpful”.
“Awesome reference book! I use it everyday for my NNP clinicals and I know that it will come in handy once I graduate! Definitely recommend for anyone going into an advanced practice degree in neonatology”.
“This text is a great resource for all, but especially for my Neonatal nurse practitioner students. Because it is written from the bases of a clinical symptom or sign it is very clear how to formulate differential diagnosis. The Differential lists are comprehensive and very well outlined.
"Love this text!”
“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 book is a must have for any neonatal nurse practitioner student! I am constantly going to this book for answers. I feel like it provides the best organization and breakdown of anything you need to know nicu related!”
“Great reference book for our NICU. We are adding to our library in the unit and this was a must to have. Quick reference and easy to follow.”
“This book is an excellent reference for students and professionals. I bought this for my nursing school capstone experience in a NICU. It's very detailed, but light enough to actually carry back and forth every day. Several of the doctors I worked with borrowed it from me and loved it so much they immediately ordered a copy for themselves to keep in the NICU.”
“This neo book by Gomella is awesome. I had the 5th and 6th editions that somehow walked out of my office. These books are very informative and help nurses study for their national certification.”
“Conceptually sound with great explanations of clinical but also basic pathophysiology much of which applies and assists understanding of pediatrics even beyond the neonatal period!”
“Must have book ...I've read Cloherty multiple times...but sometimes I feel there something missing.This book fills that void”.
“We issue this book to our 3rd year medical students in their Pediatric clerkship as required reading. Our residents use it as well.”
“I've had a few copies of this book and other editions my favorite go to book, especially when I'm teaching it is a quick reference. Have used this reference book for years. It continues to deliver up-to-date information. Thankful now that it is on Kindle reader.”
“A "standard of care" book that all medical practitioners who work with neonates should have and read.”
“Great reference... my grand nephew was born at 28 weeks, so I appreciated the clear explanations.
“If I could give more stars for this book. I would!!! Great Book!!!”
“The Best of the Neonatal handbooks.”
