All parents need an ‘owners manual’ to take with them as they walk out of the hospital carrying their newborn home. New parents have so much to learn in such a short time, and every parent wants to do everything right – which no one can, of course. Even the most capable, organised parents who are well prepared for their new roles realise there is so much to learn, and they often feel totally overwhelmed by their new responsibilities. Parents need a concise, reliable resource to guide them. There isn’t much time for reading and this generation of parents expect instant information via the internet and/or their phone. This can also be a time of information overload so parents need to be discerning about advice received from well-meaning others and the internet. So, new parents, here is your practical guide for the first few months of your parenting journey. These early weeks are precious even though they pass in a blur of elation and sleep deprivation. You can trust the information provided in New Baby 101 is based on the best evidence and research and a midwife's vast practical experience helping new parents. This book will enable you to enjoy your babymoon – the first months of your life with your new baby. Congratulations!

All anesthesiologists eventually face the fear of a “near miss,” when a patient’s life has been put at risk. Learning from the experience is crucial to professionalism and the ongoing development of expertise. Drawing on forty-plus years of practice in major metropolitan hospitals in the United States, Norway, and South Africa, John Brock-Utne, MD presents 80 carefully selected cases that provide the basis for lessons and tips to prevent potential disaster. The cases emphasize problem-centered learning and span a broad range of topics—from an outbreak of operating room infection (could it be the anesthesia equipment?), complications of fiberoptic intubations, and problems with epidural drug pumps, to performing an urgent tracheostomy for the first time, working with an aggressive surgeon, and what to do when a patient falls off the operating table during surgery. 80 true-story clinical “near misses” never before published, ideal for problem-centered learning, recommendations, references, and discussions accompany most cases, rich basis for teaching discussions both in or out of the operating room, settings include sophisticated as well as rudimentary anesthetic environments, complements the author’s other case book, Clinical Anesthesia: Near Misses and Lessons Learned (Springer, 2008).

Between 1870 and 1970, 26 million Italians left their homeland and travelled to places like Canada, Australia and the United States, in search of work. Many of them never returned to Italy. Against this historic backdrop comes the story of Rosina, a Calabrian matriarch, who worked as a midwife in an area where only one doctor served three villages. She was also the only member of the Russo family to remain in Italy after the mass migration of the 1950s. Written by Rosina’s great-great- granddaughter, Rosina, the Midwife is a charming memoir that is at once a Canadian story and an Italian one. Through Kluthe’s meticulous research and great insight, we see her great-grandfather Generoso labouring through the harsh Edmonton winter in order to buy passage to Canada for his wife and children; we glimpse her grandmother Rose huddled in a third-class cabin, sick from the motion of the boat; and we watch, teary-eyed, as her great-great-grandmother Rosina is forced to say goodbye, one by one, to the people she loves.
