Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

The sudden and unexpected death of a healthy infant under 1 year of age. A diagnosis of SIDS is made when an autopsy cannot determine another cause of death. The cause of SIDS is unknown. SIDS cases have dropped since safe sleeping campaigns (ABC: Alone, on their Back, in a Crib) began. Also known as “crib” or “cot” death.
