- adj. of or relating to apnea
Common symptoms include profound hypotension, respiratory depression, bradycardia and CNS depression. 2 Respirations can be irregular and proceed to intermittent apneic episodes.
In reality, most of the people who "sleep well" are either depressed, on medication, not from New York or sleep apneic.
While there were many, many tests and procedures, the greatest emphasis was placed on the apneic events themselves.
Dr. Kudchadker went through his records-pages that had been duplicated and amassed into big black volumes that had become the prosecution's chief exhibits'to tell the court about the dizzying array of apneic events occurring in September and October 1983.
Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy was Morgan Reid's problem-not some bizarre apneic and seizure disorder.
Melodee asked what history had Tanya Reid provided about Morgan's seventh apneic episode.
She wrote, "... apneic episodes requiring resuscitation occurred during the hospitalization but only when the infant and mother were behind curtains, closed doors, or briefly out of the intensive care unit."
"Mr. Reid, has any physician accused you of suffocating the child to bring about a seizure or apneic episode?"
Perhaps Tanya Reid could be caught in the act of smothering her baby to create the apneic spells.
• Establishing effective ventilation is the primary objective in the management of the apneic or bradycardic newborn infant in the delivery room.
