Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Sudden Infant Death (SIDS) is described as the result of breathing air vitiated by carbon dioxide or other pollutants. Mechanisms are given for SIDS and a description is given of how exhaled air does not leave the vicinity of the face of a sleeping baby in certain combinations of environmental conditions, baby responses to excess CO2 and bedding. Precautions for the prevention of SIDS are given and the statistical associations are discussed.
