Apnea means "without breath" and refers to breathing that slows down or stops from any cause. Apnea of prematurity refers to breathing pauses in babies who were born before 37 weeks of pregnancy (premature birth).
Most premature babies have some degree of apnea because the area of the brain that controls breathing is still developing.
