A newborn baby who is small or has a potentially life-threatening problem is in an emergency situation requiring immediate diagnosis and management. Delay in identification of the problem or in providing the correct management may be fatal. This guide provides up-to-date, authoritative clinical guidelines for use at the first referral level in low-resource settings by the doctors,nurses, midwives, and other health care workers who are responsible for the care of newborn babies with problems during the first week(s) of life. The guide can also be used to identify less common conditions that require referral to a higher level.
