Being a new parent can be a scary thing, especially if your baby has a medical condition. Bringing your newborn home is supposed to be a happy time but for many parents of NICU graduates it can be a very stressful experience. This particular population is at risk for conditions related to apneas and cardiac arrhythmias such as tachycardia, a faster than normal heart rate, and bradycardia, a slower than normal heart rate.

Infant Monitoring in the Hospital and Home provides clinical value to healthcare providers. Monitoring enables the diagnosis and management of at-risk vulnerable infants to provide better outcomes. Monitoring also improves the quality of life for a pre-term infant by enabling the baby to go home earlier, and peace of mind for their family, knowing that their baby will not suffer from undetected life threatening events while lowering the cost of care by providing a low cost alternative to hospital care, enabling earlier NICU discharge.
