(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005), Avery's Diseases of the NEwborn, 9th edition, Gleason and Devaskar (Elsevier, 2012)), it is more detailed with an emphasis on the organization asepcts of perinatal medicine, biochemistry, and the pathophysiological basis of care algorithms.

The target audience is neonatal physicians, fellows, and neonatal nurse practitioners.

"This is a fantastic book. It is a 'tour de force' exploration of fetal, perinatal and neonatal care, with a long list of contributors at the cutting edge of neonatology from across the USA and around the world. In this way it is able to present a balanced and international view on the current management of perinatal conditions...Fanaroff and Martin's Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine is a genuine alternative to the standard UK texts such as Rennie and Roberton's d104book of Neonatology"
