Envolve Shares Facts During SIDS Awareness Month

10-04-2017 01:51 PM CET | Health & Medicine

Press release from: Envolve Health

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 4,000 infants die suddenly in their sleep each year in the U.S. Most of those deaths are attributed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) because no apparent cause is determined. Although research shows ways to possibly help prevent SIDS, there is still much fear and mystery surrounding it. The health experts at Envolve, an integrated healthcare solutions company, are joining in the effort to offer parents information about this syndrome during October’s SIDS Awareness Month.

1. Understand the Basics. SIDS, the leading cause of unexpected death among infants under the age of one, usually happens during sleep and more often during the winter or colder months. SIDS deaths are typically determined after autopsies aren’t able to reveal the cause of death in otherwise healthy infants.

2. Certain Babies Have Higher Risks. SIDS occurs more often in boys than girls. The risk is also higher in African-American and Native American infants, who are up to three times more likely to die from SIDS than their Caucasian counterparts. The highest probability exists in infants two to four months old and then decreases as they grow. The mother’s age and premature births may also contribute to the risk of SIDS.

3. Avoid Common Factors. The CDC and other SIDS resources offer tips to reduce the risk of SIDS. Before putting children down for a nap or bedtime, make sure they’re on their backs. The sleeping surface should be firm and you should avoid placing soft pillows, toys and bedding in babies’ sleeping areas. Additionally, never smoke around babies or when pregnant.

4. A Combination of Components May Contribute to SIDS. Environmental risk factors, combined with defects babies are born with, can increase the chance of SIDS. Smoking during pregnancy or exposing the fetus to toxins can contribute, especially because they reduce the amount of oxygen babies receive during pregnancy. The risk of SIDS increases in newborns who have underlying issues and then experience other factors such as infections, overheating or increased exposure to carbon dioxide.

5. Prenatal Care May Be Key to Preventing SIDS. One of the most important steps new mothers can take is to schedule and keep doctors’ appointments while pregnant. Prenatal care is crucial before and during any pregnancy. Blood testing is also available for mothers-to-be to help determine the risk for SIDS.
