Summary:

Apnea, as defined by the American Academy of Pediatrics and researchers, is “the cessation of breathing for over 15-20 seconds and is accompanied by oxygen desaturation (SpO2 less than or equal to 80% for ≥ 4 seconds) and/or bradycardia (HR less than 2/3 of the basic HR for ≥ 4 seconds) in neonates with a gestational age less than 37 weeks.” Apnea of prematurity (AOP) is an individualized and self-limiting process and not associated with other disease entities. While it can be multifactorial in origin, idiopathic AOP is considered a developmental disorder that recedes with increasing gestational age. This module provides healthcare providers with information about the incidence, etiology, identification, and interprofessional treatment of AOP.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is to provide nurses, physicians, speech and language therapists, occupational, respiratory, and physical therapists, and radiology technologists with information about the incidence, etiology, identification, and interprofessional treatment of AOP. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Define apnea of prematurity
  • Identify three risk factors and three presenting symptoms of AOP
  • Describe pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying AOP and differentiate among three different presentations (central, obstructive, mixed)
  • Discuss various interprofessional treatment modalities for AOP and three appropriate nursing interventions
