  • NEAR-MISS SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME IN 8 INFANTS WITH SLEEP APNEA-RELATED CARDIAC-ARRHYTHMIAS PEDIATRICS Guilleminault, C., Ariagno, R., Coons, S., WINKLE, R., KOROBKIN, R., Baldwin, R., Souquet, M. 1985; 76 (2): 236-242

    Abstract:

    Eight full-term infants between 3 and 8 weeks of age, who had had 24 to 48 hours of vague problems involving a congested upper airway and/or irritability, had a life-threatening respiratory episode at home, called a near-miss for sudden infant death syndrome event. Polygraphically monitored mixed apneas occurred in clusters during non-rapid eye movement (NREM) sleep with significant cardiac arrhythmias, predominantly sinus arrest. The cardiorespiratory problems continued during sleep in the following 8 to 12 weeks but did not recur after that time, and there were no long-term sequelae when the children were studied again 4 to 7 years later.
