Question Why does everything say you

Everything I have read it says that once you find a baby that has quit breathing due to SIDS that you cannot resusitate them.. Why is this?
If you catch them within minutes why can't you start them breathing again? Or am I just misunderstanding something?

Exclamation Re: Why does everything say you

The research that I have read indicates that the baby can not be recesitated because the brain stem is already dead and that is what controls all breathing. There has also been research that indicates that the babies breathing had been slowly getting irregular and slower hours before but not enough to hear or see any outward signs. Another indication after a baby is found not breathing is that they have very tiny burst vessels in their chest, that could be another reason they cant be recesitated.

There are lots of theorys out there but the main definition of SIDS says that SIDS is the unexplained death of an apparently healthy baby after a thourgh autopsy. So by saying unexplained death... a baby who is going to surcum to SIDS will die and can not be resesitated.

I don't pretend to be an expert, this is just the research I have seen and how I have personally interpreted it and how it related to my daughters death.

I pray that some day we will be able to diagnois SIDS and eliminate it completely!

Like CarrieAnn's Mom, I have read a lot about SIDS, due to losing a nephew in a horrific accident, the synapese in the brain quit firing, ( meaning the brain doesn't tell the body its in trouble ), I know this isn't what you want to hear, I am sorry for your lose.
Just let the children be with the angels now
