Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The annual report of the Regional Infant and Child Mortality Review Committee (RICMRC) is attached. This Committee has as its mission the review of infant and child death so that information can be transformed into action to protect young lives. The 2002 review area includes South Dakota's Minnehaha, Turner, Lincoln, Moody, Lake, McCook, and Union counties. In 2002 there was one death in this region due to SIDS, plus one infant death due to positional asphyxia that illustrates the hazards of soft bedding and prone sleeping. These data reflect the need to remain vigilant in the public campaign to promote "back to sleep" and safe sleeping environments for infants. There were four other deaths due to accidental injury, mostly representing immaturity in driving various vehicles. In 2002 there were two child abuse homicides, and three teenage suicides. The RICMRC invites other communities to join in its efforts to review deaths to prevent potential life-threatening hazards to children in their local environs.
