With this issue we invite you to continue reading our two-part special series related to the respiratory system brought to us by our guest editor Dr. Katherine Newnam. In this issue the respiratory series focuses on modes of ventilation, first with an article related to implementation of non-invasive ventilation and then our CEU article related to modes of mechanical ventilation particular the differences and similarities between volume and pressure driven ventilation. We believe these two articles will provide everyday resources for the practicing clinician with the evidence to support intervention strategies.

Case studies are an important part of bedside care and learning, our editorial this month provides important insight in to how best develop a case study for publication in Advances in Neonatal Care. Also in this issue is a great article by Christine Manipon on Ankyloglossia; as increasing numbers of high risk infants are going to breast for feedings supporting them to success can sometime mean assessment and intervention for Ankyloglossia. In addition, our evidence-based brief by Pados et al. provides an evaluation of feeding assessment tools that could be helpful in your clinical practice. Another excellent article by Patricia Laken on the assessment and management of hemangiomas is also provided.  Research articles include: considering the predictive validity of the Premie-Neuro; Gastric Tube insertion techniques; and, why nurses decide to enter graduate school for neonatal nurse practitioner education. Please write us and let us know how you like this issue and what we could do to continue to improve Advances in Neonatal Care.

This Advances in Neonatal Care article shows that infants who receive this intervention grow better and also more rapidly develop the muscle control needed for successful feeding.
