BRUE has been proposed to replace the term ALTE for an unexplained witnessed event as defined above.
Tell parents that if their infant experiences an ALTE, they should seek medical attention without delay.
Infants who experience an ALTE should be admitted and observed in a monitored unit (such as the intensive care unit) irrelevant of how well they appear upon arrival to the emergency department (Claudius & Keens, 2007; Goldberg et al.
These data could also support the role of HRV-C in infants with ALTEs found in this work.
One study of 59 previously healthy infants, for example, found that 14% of hospitalizations were ultimately proved necessary, and that a history of multiple ALTEs in 24 hours and age of 1 month or younger had a combined negative predictive value of 100% (Pediatrics 2007;119: 679-83).
ALTEs consist of events affecting children younger than age 2 years that frighten the observer, such as apnea or a disturbing change in skin color.
More specifically, Korthals Altes investigates the process of interpretation by zooming in on the dialectical relationship between narrative features and the ethos (or self image) we attribute to characters, narrators, and authors (such as the genius, prophet, guide, social critic, enfant terrible, nihilist, outcast, lunatic, pervert, or impostor).
But Altes and his team solved that problem by planning a tent city, with around 150 tents ready to be rented out.
Among these is a formerly external courtyard behind the Altes Rathaus, now enclosed by a glazed roof interspersed with panels of delicately coloured glass by French artist Daniel Buren, which cast shimmering rainbow shadows.
Most recently, Altes served as vice president merchandising of the bath division of CHF Home Fashions and was a buyer for Linens 'n Things and Bloomingdale's.
