This chapter presents a 1992 commentary on neonatal pediatricians' dedication to their patients. The ‘never say die’ attitude is more common pediatricians than in other medical specialities, possibly because the practice itself is the least concerned with death, and the close ties doctors form with their patients and families.

Keywords: neonatal care; neonates; medical care; medical practice
