This unit focuses on exploring the science of neonatology and examines the theoretical basis of pathophysiology, therapeutic intervention and evidence based practice fundamentals that are essential to understanding the complex and critically ill newborn infant and the growing premature infant. It draws upon previously learned concepts to examine aspects of prematurity, or problematic adaptation to extra-uterine life, and the consequential pathophysiological processes which may arise. Acute and chronic variations of health, as well as the diverse needs of premature and term newborn/neonates are analysed.
