According to a new study, one in eight sudden and sleep-related deaths in infants occur while sleeping on the sofa.
Tisk of sudden infant death syndrome is highly depended on the infant's age, a new study reported.
A new study reveals why parents should never bring their babies to bed. New research revealed that newborns who sleep in the same bed as their parents are five times more likely to die of sudden infant death syndrome.
Health officials warn parents against using bolsters, used to keep sleeping babies on their backs, as they say that the pillows pose a threat of suffocation in infants. The warning comes after the number of deaths caused by the 'sleep positioners' rose to at least 13 U.S. infants recently. Bolsters are long narrow pillows or cushions filled with cotton, down, or fibre and are used as bumpers in cribs.
According to a new study by researchers from Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy, much of the previously reported increase in suicide cases in the U.S. between 2000 and 2010 can be attributed to an increase in hanging/suffocation. The increase in hanging/suffocation is largest among those aged between 45 and 59 years (104 percent increase), Medical Xpress reported.
