Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In summary, apnea of prematurity is both a primary and a secondary disorder--a reflection of CNS immaturity as well as a response to an underlying problem. Premature infants are extremely vulnerable to developing apnea. Close monitoring by the nursing staff and early detection and treatment of apnea and its associated disorders are essential to insure optimal growth and development of these tiny infants.
