Intended to aid nurses in recognizing signs of disease and anomalies in infants, the booklet reviews the major components of appraisal of infants and young children. Attention is given especially to the basic neurological reflex patterns and the maturation of the central nervous system. Criteria for determining whether medical assistance should be sought are given for each aspect of appraisal. Appended are a sample bath technique description, a premature infant checklist, a list of anomalies, and a developmental screening inventory. (KW)
