From Circadiance – The Clinical Value of Infant Monitoring

Published in Respiratory & Sleep 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.

You can view the full electronic issue of Neonatal Intensive Care here. A link to the issue is in the right hand column, part way down the page. To download a PDF of the article, click here.

Circadiance also offers an informational course presented by Dr. Muelenaer. In this FREE, one-hour course, you will learn to:

  • Define basic terms such as apnea, bradycardia, and tachycardia.
  • Recognize common diagnoses associated with abnormalities of cardiorespiratory control in infants.
  • Be familiar with current cardiorespiratory monitoring technology and interpretation of event recordings.
  • Apply knowledge related to features of this technology to a case management model in order to optimize patient care/outcomes.
