    E) 75 day old ex-38 week gestation infant who had a 30 second period of appearing to not breathe and is RSV+
    A BRUE (brief resolved unexplained event) is defined as an event that occurs in children 60 days, born at >= 32 weeks gestation and corrected age >= 45 weeks, no CPR by a trained provider, event < 1 minute, first and single event, non-concerning H&P. The 75 day old has a reason for the event so it is not a BRUE because it is explained. The remainder meet the criteria for a low risk BRUE.
