Nicu said to use apnea monitor from discharge to 6 month old. Do I need to leave him on it while I am in the room?

In brief: Yes
Generally, you want to keep it on your child continuously, mostly to make him get used to the pads and wires.
The only time you should take it off should be during baths.
