Abstract

Biologic plausibility of risk factors is required to strengthen risk reduction strategies. The "triple risk model" for SIDS describes the interplay of a vulnerable infant, during a critical developmental period, interacting with external stressors (2). Identified external stressors are the supine sleep position and smoke exposure (3). Airway occlusion has been identified as a contributory mechanism in SIDS and may be relevant in deaths occurring in seating devices (4), which are increasingly used in routine infant care for up to six hours a day (3). Accidental death from strangulation, falls and suffocation in seating devices is well described (5). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
