From the Editors

Happy New Year from Advances in Neonatal Care.

With this issue we introduce the first of a two part respiratory special series with guest editor Katherine Newnam. The respiratory series features the variety of respiratory issues faced by high risk infants.  The CE article on bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) provides a comprehensive overview of the care needs of the infant with BPD and the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) article looks at the evolution of the neonatal ECMO care in the last decade and outcomes of these infants.

Also in this issue we bring back our Family Teaching Toolbox for parents.  The toolbox is a companion resource to a systematic review of congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) manuscript which summarizing the risks, signs, treatment, and care for these infants. The teaching toolbox tailors the content for parent teaching.
