844 Possible Causes for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

    Hypothermia has been used in the treatment of brain injury for many years. Encouraging results from small trials and laboratory studies led to renewed interest in the area and some larger trials. To determine the effect of mild hypothermia for traumatic brain injury (TBI) on mortality, long-term functional[…][]

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection

    Abstract Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is the leading cause of viral respiratory tract infections in infants and young children. Although the course of RSV infection is usually benign, a small proportion of infants require mechanical ventilation for respiratory failure. We describe an eight-month-old previously[…][]

  • Cardiac Arrest

    PPE — preparticipation evaluation SCA — sudden cardiac arrest SIDS — sudden infant death syndrome VF — ventricular fibrillation Incidence of Pediatric Sudden Cardiac Arrest[] This statement is not intended to address sudden infant death syndrome or sudden unexplained death syndrome, nor will specific treatment of individual cardiac conditions be[] Drowning or near-drowning has been associated with LQTS and CPVT. 33 , 34 Approximately 5% to 10% of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) cases may stem from channelopathic[]

  • Ondine Syndrome

    Unfortunately, some infants with unrecognized CCHS may die and be thought to have had SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).[] Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (CCHS) and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS): kindred disorders of autonomic regulation.[] Derrick Lonsdale , Sudden infant death syndrome and abnormal metabolism of thiamin , Medical Hypotheses , 85 , 6 , (922) , (2015) .

  • Medium Chain Acyl CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

    Diagnosis may be difficult, since the disorder may present as hypoglycemia, sudden infant death syndrome or a Reye's syndrome-like illness.[] […] had been recorded, one attributed to sudden infant death syndrome and the other to Reye syndrome.[] It is characterized by hypoketotic hypoglycemia, hyperammonemia, seizure, coma, and sudden infant death syndrome-like illness.[]

  • Spasmodic Croup

    Abstract We compared the efficacy of high-dose dexamethasone sodium phosphate (0.6 mg/kg) in laryngotracheitis (LT) v spasmodic croup (SC) in 72 children (age range, 8 months to 8 years) using a double-blind randomized protocol that measured the individual change in respirations as an objective variable to[…][]

  • Asphyxia

    Abstract Although unexpected infant death in a cot has traditionally been attributed to sudden infant death syndrome, careful evaluation of death scenes and sleeping environments[] […] asphyxia or sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).[] ‘Substantial increases were noted for deaths due to asphyxia, sudden infant death syndrome, infection, and external causes.’[]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    BACKGROUND: The ability of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) lactate to distinguish between acute bacterial meningitis (ABM) and aseptic meningitis/encephalitis (AME) is debated. We assessed the diagnostic value of CSF lactate to discriminate between ABM and AME. METHODS: We included 176 patients from a prospective adult[…][]

  • Long Chain Hydroxyacyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

    In the past, LCHADD was not often diagnosed until a baby was very sick or after they passed away from apparent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).[] […] unexplained death or hypoglycemia and abnormal liver enzymes (Reye- like syndrome).[] This disease is associated with LCHAD deficiency and characterized by sudden unexplained infant death or hypoglycemia and abnormal liver enzymes (Reye-like syndrome).[]
