Any new parent would be nervous when they hear that their child may be having apnea events while asleep such as pauses in breathing. With the smart monitor 2 which is the newest technology available for home monitoring it allows us to log on to a wireless modem and review the study in the event any alarms are to go off. The purpose of the apnea monitor is to monitor continuous or event recording of cardio respiratory events. Typically a Apnea monitor would be used on new born babies discharged from the hospital .
A lot of parents would ask what is apnea, and there are three types of apnea. There is central, obstructive, and mixed. To identify what type of apnea events the baby is experiencing the monitor will detect decreases in chest movements and heart rate. When using Aeroflow health care for apnea monitoring it allows us to provide 24 hours 7 days a week live support. We would also educate the parent on the monitor and why this has been ordered by the physician. For more information on ordering with Aeroflow Health care feel free to call us at 888-345-1780.
