Sudden infant death syndrome SIDS accounts for 10% of infant deaths and is the second highest cause of death (after accidents) in infancy.

The risk is higher in males, in low-birth-weight infants, in lower socioeconomic levels, during cold months, and for babies who sleep face down. Both experimental and observational studies provide evidence indicating that infection and inflammation might play a role in sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

Indeed, as early asPaltauf demonstrated mild inflammatory changes in the walls of the bronchioles in SIDS cases (1).Author: Siri Hauge Opdal. The contemporary Triple Risk Model proposes that when three conditions are present concurrently, a sudden infant death occurs.

These conditions are: [1] the vulnerable infant (preterm birth, exposure to maternal smoking during pregnancy); [2] a critical development period ( months of age); and [3] an exogenous stressor such as prone sleeping, head covering, co-sleeping, infection, or by: 1.

But another highly consequential process also begins: the process through which the infant’s parents contend. Newborn Studies Intermittent Hypoxia Studies Throughout the years, the American SIDS Institute has been involved in projects to learn more about the underlying medical vulnerabilities that make an infant more likely to die suddenly.

Research Research is being conducted all over the world to better understand sleep related sudden infant deaths. The American SIDS Institute is involved in research looking at the tissue of infants who have died suddenly and with research studying live infants.

A year study of 11, infant sleep-related deaths showed that (3%) babies died in sitting devices, in most cases while in car seats.
