SIDS Prevention Primer for Early Intervention Providers
Course Objectives, Outcomes & Other Relevant Information

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the leading cause of death for babies in the United States from birth through 12 months of age, and the 3rd leading cause of infant mortality in the United States. Neither predictable nor genetic, SBS is a medical mystery that is more common in African-Americans males in winter who are born prematurely and who sleep on their stomachs. The unique signature characteristic of SIDS is that it spares infants from birth to 2 months, only to have a peak age distribution between 2-4 months of age. Also known as cot death or crib death because infants are at greatest risk during sleep, 91% of all cases occur between 1-6 months of age; 95% of all SIDS occurs by 6 months of age, and rarely occurs after 1 year of age.

Learn about the triple-risk model as to the origin of the cause of SIDS, the role of apnea, cardiac defects, and prone sleeping that promote SIDS. Understand and differentiate SUID from SIDS, and how both are diagnosed. Assimilate the wide range of topics relating to understanding the role of arousal and homeostasis, risk factors, supine versus prone and side-sleeping, reflux, apnea, re-breathing, smoking, co-sleeping, as well as in what instances is it appropriate for a child to sleep on their stomach.

While there is nothing any parent can do to prevent SIDS in their baby with absolute certainty, by learning what stressors aggravate the likelihood for SIDS, early intervention providers can learn how to proactively educate parents in methods of SIDS prevention! As an early intervention provider making visits to the home, what RISK FACTORS suggest SIDS? In which instance should a referral be made for  social work, psychological, or a maternal-child health nurse to a family that is at risk for SIDS? How can you help prevent SIDS?

Early intervention home-care providers are on the front-line of entry into homes where SIDS may occur, and have a unique opportunity to proactively education families. Providers must know how to pay attention to home-factors which might precipitate SIDS, and how to stave off the increased likelihood of SIDS by direct parent/guardian education. Review case studies in proactive intervention and facilitate your ability to help the children and families under your care!

This primer is a MUST READ for all early intervention and pre-school therapists who service the professional home care needs of the infant.
