Apnea monitor

An apnea monitor checks the heart rate and respiration of the baby to make sure they are breathing properly. When either one falls below normal levels the apnea monitor beeps notifying the parent that something may be wrong. Newborns, especially premies, are often put on an apnea monitor to observe their breathing patterns.
