A Compendium of AAP Clinical Practice Guidelines and Policies Policy of the American Academy of Pediatrics Neonatal Care A Compendium of AAP Clinical Practice Guidelines and Policies Neonatal Care Clinical practice guidelines have long provided physicians with an evidence- based decision-making tool for managing common pediatric conditions. Policy statements issued by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) are developed to provide physicians with a quick reference guide to the AAP position on child health care issues. This manual contains an AAP clinical practice guideline and AAP policy statements, clinical reports, and technical reports related to neonatal care. Within this compendium, you will find the collected results of the AAP Committee on Fetus and Newborn efforts over the past several years, in addition to select policies from other AAP groups. A wide range of perinatal topics, from antenatal counseling for periviable birth, to hospital discharge of the high-risk neonate, to post-discharge follow-up of infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, is captured in these pages. More than 40 different topics, organized into 9 sections for easy reference, are included. Each statement or report contains an abstract overview, a concise presentation and critique of the available data, and a summary of the findings and/ or recommendations, along with a current and comprehensive bibliography. Sections include Delivery/Discharge Newborn Screening High-Risk Newborn/Prematurity Respiratory Support Infections/Vaccinations Complications/Issues Safe Sleep Sudden Infant Death Syndrome/ Infant Death Other Related Policies For other pediatric resources, visit the American Academy of Pediatrics at shop.aap.org.
