Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is any sudden and unexplained death of an apparently healthy infant aged one month to one year.
The term cot death is often used in the United Kingdom, and crib death in North America.
SIDS is responsible for roughly 50 deaths per 100,000 births in the U.S.
Recent research has found that babies who die of sudden infant death syndrome may have abnormalities in the part of the brain that helps control functions like breathing, blood pressure and arousal.
