The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has released a new clinical practice guideline on brief resolved unexplained events (BRUE) in low-risk infants. BRUE refers to brief events in infants, such as when a baby stops breathing for a few seconds that are unexplained and rarely associated with underlying medical problems. The new term, BRUE, will replace “apparent life-threatening event” (ALTE).
The guidelines were published online April 25 in the journal Pediatrics and will be e published in the May 2016 Pediatrics.

The guidelines apply to well-appearing infants up to 12 months old who experience an event that lasts less than a minute and then resolves itself during which they exhibit one or more of the following symptoms: blue or pale complexion, absent or irregular breathing, marked change in muscle tone and altered level of responsiveness.
