Sudden infant death syndrome: Reducing the risk

Far fewer cases of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) occur today in Canada since the reduction of environmental risk factors (e.g., avoidance of prone sleeping position and secondhand smoke). However, SIDS continues to be the leading cause of postneonatal infant death, accounting for about 25% of all deaths among infants between 1 month and 1 year old. In this review, Hunt and Hauck discuss the multiple risk factors for SIDS, including genetic risk factors, and how genetic and environmental risk factors may interact. They also review the current strategies for reducing the risk of SIDS and present the main components of the new SIDS policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
