Birth Injury May Cause Unexplained SIDS

Birth Injury May Cause Unexplained SIDS

A doctor from Seattle Children’s Hospital who has been investigating the cause of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) for over a decade is proposing that a traumatic birth injury may be the root of the cause for this previously unexplained death in otherwise healthy babies. Dr. Daniel Rubens believes that trauma to the inner ear during birth could affect the ability of a baby to breathe during sleep at a young age. Specifically, damage to inner ear hairs prevents the ability to signal breathing problems to the brain. Without these warnings, infants may be unable to correct their air flow and suffocate. This situation is even more dangerous given the limited mobility of children at such a young age and the nature of breathing during deep sleep, which is characterized by slow, shallow inhalations. Dr. Ruben’s studies have already successfully proven the inner ear-respiration link, but research into the SIDS connection remains in early stages.
