An error occurred in the following AAP publication: Tieder JS, Bonkowsky JL, Etzel RA, et al; for the Subcommittee on Apparent Life-Threatening Events. Clinical Practice Guideline: Brief resolved unexplained events (formerly apparent life-threatening events) and evaluation of lower-risk infants. Pediatrics. 2016;137(5):e20160590 (https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/137/5/e20160590). Under the heading of RISK ASSESSMENT: LOWER- VERSUS HIGHER-RISK BRUE (page e5 of the PDF), the fourth sentence should read:

“There was generally an increased risk from prematurity in infants born at <32 weeks of gestation. Among infants born between 32 and 37 weeks of gestation, the risk attenuated once they reached 45 weeks of postconceptional age.3

In the ninth sentence in that paragraph, the word “Cardiopulmonary” is misspelled.

On the same page, under the heading PATIENT FACTORS THAT DETERMINE A LOWER RISK, the second bulleted item should be replaced with:

  • Gestational age not >32 weeks

  • If born between 32‐37 weeks of gestation, corrected gestational age ≥45 weeks
