Apnoea of prematurity remains one of the most challenging problems faced by any neonatologist. Despite better understanding of neonatal physiology there is still not much consensus regarding its management. This PowerPoint tries to give a basic idea of its pathophysiology as well as discuss various management options available. It concludes with a brief review of various evidences available & a hope that a widespread consensus based on best evidences will be available soon.
