Several chapters have been rewritten and moved around. Ten appendices (A–J) go with the chapters and give readers a lot of extra information and resources.

This edition keeps the previous edition’s focus on reproductive awareness and regionally based perinatal care services. However, a new chapter is dedicated to patient safety and quality improvement in obstetrics and neonatology.

Guidelines For Perinatal Care 8th Edition PDF Description

Guidelines for Perinatal Care show how different fields in the perinatal community work together. It is made for people who work in community programs, hospitals, and medical centers and care for pregnant women, their fetuses, and their newborns. To meet their needs as a group, they are given a mix of information with different levels of detail.

The result is a unique resource that goes well with the more specific educational documents listed in Appendix I. Readers are encouraged to look in the appendix for related documents not listed at the end of each chapter. This book also lists websites that can be used as resources. On the list are the websites of organizations that are important to health care (Appendix J).

Both the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (the College) will continue to update the information on this page through policy statements and recommendations. This is especially true for technologies and areas of practice that are changing quickly.

Guidelines for Perinatal Care is a document that goes along with the third edition of the College’s Guidelines for Women’s Health Care. Even though each book is put together with the help of a different committee, the information in them is coordinated to give a complete guide to all aspects of women’s health care with as little repetition as possible.

This document was made with the most up-to-date scientific information, professional opinions, and clinical practices. It is meant to give guidelines for how to do things, not strict rules. The best way to use these guidelines to meet the needs of a particular hospital, community, or system will depend on how they are used. (For example, the term “readily available,” which describes acceptable levels of care, should be defined differently by each institution based on its resources and location.

So, it makes sense to adjust the time to delivery based on local conditions and how things work.) Instead of pushing for strict recommendations, the focus has been on figuring out which areas should be covered by specific protocols set up locally. The information in this latest version of Guidelines for Perinatal Care has been carefully looked over to make sure it is correct and in line with both AAP and College policies.

The guidelines aren’t meant to be all-inclusive, and they don’t always agree with what other groups say. However, they include the latest suggestions from the AAP and the College. The recommendations of the AAP and the College are based on what is known about the data and what experts in the field agree on.

The AAP Committee on Fetus and Newborn and the College Committee on Obstetric Practice wrote, edited, and reviewed the text. Consultants from a wide range of fields also helped with the content. The people who worked on the first editions also deserve credit for their hard work. We thank every one of them from the bottom of our hearts.
