on February 21, 2019
Circadiance is featured in the Winter 2019 issue of Neonatal Intensive Care Magazine. The article, titled “The Clinical Value of Infant Monitoring,” is intended for clinicians who may encounter babies who are at risk for apnea and apparent life threatening events (aka BRUEs) and those who routinely manage these babies through an apnea program or durable medical equipment provider.
This review focuses on the medical management of apnea as a symptom of a broad range of possible conditions and the use of event recording cardiorespiratory monitors for monitoring newborns in the hospital and home. The article is written by Dr. Andre A. Muelenaer, Jr., M.D.,M.S., FAAP, FCCP.
