We formulate conditions for invertibility of quantum jumps in systems that decay by emission of quanta into a continuously monitored reservoir. We propose proof-of-principle experiments using techniques from cavity quantum electrodynamics and ion trapping, and briefly discuss the relevance of such methods for error correction in quantum computation.
