Sudden Unexpected Infant Death Syndrome (SUIDS)
Sudden Unexpected Infant Death Syndrome (SUIDS) is a broad term used to encompass all sudden infant deaths, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), accidental deaths (such as suffocation and strangulation), sudden natural deaths, and homicides. There are about 4,000 sudden infant deaths each year in the U.S. About half of these are diagnosed as SIDS or unexplained, and other half are diagnosed as due to other causes.
The goals of the SUIDS training is to promote safe sleep environments, prevent accidental deaths, and prevent situations that could lead to suffocation, asphyxia or entrapment. Upon completing the training, participants will be able to define SIDS, identify strategies to reduce the risk of SIDS, create a safe sleep environment for infants, describe appropriate infant care practices, develop a safe sleep policy, list the emergency measures if infant/child is found unresponsive, communicate to parents the importance of practices to reduce the risk of SIDS and name a resource for safe sleep, SIDS information, and counseling and support.
