Brief. Resolved. Unexplained. Events.
A few months ago the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released a set of guidelines on the management of a common pediatric condition formally known as ALTE (now known as BRUE). These babies used to ALL be admitted to the hospital for extensive testing. However, this is no longer the case. Now, the AAP divides these babies into 3 categories, HIGH risk, LOW risk, and NOT BRUE. I’ll break down this huge pediatrics topic and the new guidelines in this episode.
