Abstract

A number of recent reports have indicated a higher risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) in the prone sleeping position, compared with the supine position. However, the biological mechanisms for this increased risk have not been established. For this report, two biological explanations are proposed, each of which may be influenced by altered sleeping position in such a way that they may create conditions for increased triggering of SIDS.
