PMID:  3751839     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Infants who are found apneic, limp and cyanotic or pale and who require resuscitation must be hospitalized for cardiorespiratory monitoring and medical evaluation. If no cause is found, the diagnosis of idiopathic infantile apnea is made. The impedance pneumocardiogram is often helpful in diagnosis and management. Home monitoring limits asphyxia and may prevent death in infants thought to be at risk for recurrent apnea.
