Although there is a large body of literature describing infants who experience apnea of prematurity and apparent life-threatening events, there is no consensus regarding the use of home monitoring. This article focuses on issues that affect decision making regarding the use of home monitors in these two groups of infants and reviews existing data to guide a decision to discontinue monitoring at hospital discharge or to prescribe monitoring in the home.
