Guidelines cover unexplained events in babies

AANP SmartBrief | Apr 27, 2016

The American Academy of Pediatrics issued guidance recommending that conditions in infants under age 1 -- such as turning blue or paleness, irregular breathing, marked change in muscle tone and unresponsiveness -- that last less than a minute and resolve on their own be renamed as "brief resolved unexplained events" or BRUE instead of "apparent life-threatening events" or ALTE. Providers should conduct physical examination and study the infant's medical history before diagnosing BRUE, and testing and hospitalization are not recommended in low-risk cases, according to the guidelines published in Pediatrics.
