Abstract
Crib death (SIDS) is the most frequent cause of death for infants during the first year, striking 1 out of every 700-1,000. Scarce knowledge in the field of SIDS and its pathology has led to a continued and growing concern with finding an explanation, with the goal of being able to either predict or quickly diagnose the infant or term fetus. A systematic study of the autonomic nervous system and cardiac system has been performed on a large number of infants and fetuses who died suddenly and unexpectedly, as well as in age-matched control cases. The neurological and cardiac findings are described here, and the relationship between SIDS and unexplained fetal death is discussed. This book helps pathologists, forensic pathologists, pediatricians, obstetrics, and neonatologists in recognizing all potential morphological substrata and puts forward a well-researched postmortem study for use in a standardized autopsy protocol for use in all cases of sudden unexpected infant and fetal death.

Abstract
This book is a practical, comprehensive look at safe sleep for infants, including safe sleep for infants with co-occurring medical conditions. Currently there is a dearth of resources on this topic for general pediatricians and other clinicians who provide health care to infants. The only evidence-based information about sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and other sleep-related infant deaths is published in policy statements and technical reports published by the American Academy of Paediatrics. However pediatricians, public health professionals, and others who provide health care, anticipatory guidance, and/or health education to parents often have difficulty translating the policy recommendations to practice. This book gives guidance and suggestions for clinicians for counseling parents and other caretakers of infants. It discusses common barriers to adherence, as well as approaches that are evidence-based or use behavior change theory. Chapters focus on important aspects of the sleep environment, evaluating commonly sold sleep products, and common sleep practices, including roomsharing and bedsharing. There is also a thorough discussion of SIDS pathophysiology, and a closing chapter on grief and counselling families after a loss. Each chapter follows an organizational structure, to promote consistency and ensure this remains a practical, easy-to-use tool. Chapters open with a clinical vignette and close with a discussion of frequently encountered questions, and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Infant Safe Sleep is a valuable resource for pediatricians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants as well as social workers, allied health professionals, public health practitioners, health educators, WIC nutritionists and child care providers. .
Contents
1. Why this book is important -- 2. How pathophysiology explains risk and protective factors -- 3. Safe sleep recommendations -- 4. Parent decision-making and how to influence decisions -- 5. Supine (back) sleep position -- 6. Room-sharing without bed-sharing -- 7. Breastfeeding without bedsharing -- 8. Use of soft bedding and other soft surfaces -- 9. Baby products: how to evaluate them for potential safety -- 10. Special situations: co-occurring health conditions -- 11. If the unthinkable happens: families after SUID -- 12. Advocating for safe sleep.

Abstract
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is characterised by the sudden death of an infant that is not predicted by prior medical history and it is still responsible for a large percentage of infant mortalities. The exact causes have long remained unknown, though some risk factors such as including exposure to tobacco smoke, no breast feeding, and prone sleeping position, have been identified. However an analysis linking neurophysiological and neuropathological aspects in a prospective study of SIDS suggests that one of the causes of SIDS is arousal deficiency. This unique book provides the latest, comprehensive information on SIDS research from epidemiology to physiology.
Contents
Sudden infant death syndrome and the pedunculpontine tegmental nucleus -- Developmental alteration of hypocretins (orexins) in the brainstem in the sudden infant death syndrome -- Sudden infant death syndrome from epidemiology to pathophysiology: exploring the connections -- Sleep deprivation in infants, children and adolescents -- Sleep disturbance in children resulting from noises exposure -- Sudden infant death syndrome from the perspective of arousal deficiency -- Cerebral blood oxygenation changes over the occipital and frontal cortexes during sucking in infants: an optical topographic study -- Mismatch negativity in healthy neonates and premature babies.
