Is it SUID or SIDS?
Sudden Unexplained Infant Death (SUID) is a term used to describe the unexpected infants’ deaths and is not an official diagnosis. Upon further investigation, the cause of death may be found to be one of the following causes:
• Metabolic Disorders
• Hypothermia or Hyperthermia
• Neglect or Homicide
• Accidental Suffocation
After a thorough and comprehensive investigation, if no cause has been identified, the infant death may be most accurately described as SIDS. See more at CDC Statistics
