SIDS

Press Release: Metascreen, A Guard Against 'Sudden Death'

Tuesday, January 13, 2015

     Nearly one baby every hour each day dies abruptly. An estimated 7,000 babies die each year without warning.[i]

     Parents are left clueless after the death as the possible causes remain unknown even after undergoing autopsy. All because of the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
     SIDS is the unexplained death of babies usually occurring during sleep and striking under unexpected circumstances. 

     Even a healthy one-year old baby may be a victim of the condition which is often simply attributed to physical and environmental factors.

     Studies have shown that babies with physical conditions including brain abnormalities, low birth weight and respiratory infection have higher risk of dying an unexplained death. 

     Still some studies indicated that an infant’s sleeping position may also be a cause. Babies sleeping on their stomach side are more prone as they may suffer more difficulty in breathing. Those sleeping on soft surfaces and with their parents are also at risk. [ii]
