Brief Resolved Unexplained Events: What The Emergency Clinician Needs To Know - $59.00

January 2017

In May 2016, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released a clinical practice guideline titled “Brief Resolved Unexplained Events (Formerly Apparent Life-Threatening Events) and Evaluation of Lower-Risk Infants.” Due to the nebulous nature of the previous term, there is often a feeling of uncertainty in caring for infants after an ALTE that can lead to unnecessary testing and hospitalization. This may result in increased risk to the infant without a high likelihood of finding a treatable diagnosis or preventing a future event. After 3 decades, the AAP has pro­posed a new term, brief resolved unexplained events (BRUE), and some new recommendations for management. Additionally, the AAP guideline goes on to provide an “approach to patient evaluation that is based on the risk that the infant will have a repeat event or has a serious underlying disorder” and also provides management recommendations for lower-risk infants. These recommendations have been summarized here in this special report.

Included In This Special Report:

  1. AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM
  2. Summarized information to help you keep up with the changes in the current guidelines and best practices
  3. Criteria for identification of lower-risk BRUE patients
  4. Management recommendations to help you determine the critical actions required when caring for these patients
  5. And much more!
