An Environmental Stimulus for Sudden Death in Infancy?
AbstractThis paper contains a review of the environmental conditions that may be associated with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), and notes a probable association in Utah between SIDS and atmospheric temperature inversions accompanied by a gentle breeze. These conditions also enhance the strength of low frequency sound in rooms; moreover it is only in certain-size rooms and moving automobiles (another low frequency sound environment) that SIDS has been observed. The author argues that such sound could be one of the links in SIDS, perhaps through direct transmission into the skull via an infant's not- yet-closed fontanelle.
