Sids (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) is the unexplained death, usually during sleep, of a seemingly healthy baby less than a year old. Although the cause of Sids is unknown, it appears that Sids may be associated with abnormalities in the portion of an infant’s brain that controls breathing and arousal from sleep.
HOW IS SIDS DIAGNOSED?
The approach of diagnosis by paediatricians and experts differs here. Some blame it on emotional factors while others define physical causes for the same.
HOW IS SIDS TREATED?
There is no evident treatment for SIDS but only preventive measures. Avoid risks of suffocation in bed for the child. Keep the child close to you rather than a separate room till they are one year old. Check their sleep position and bedding.
DID YOU KNOW?
Sids is sometimes known as crib death because the infants often die in their cribs.
