AIM Co-sleeping is associated with increased risk of sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI)/sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The aim of this study is to examine autopsy findings from a single U.K. specialist centre to determine the relationship between co-sleeping and cause of death. METHODS Retrospective analysis of >1500 paediatric autopsies(More)
Self-adhesive patches containing a 7-day supply of transdermal clonidine were used to treat twenty patients with mild essential hypertension. These skin patches (3.5 cm2), which were changed by the patients every week, reduced diastolic blood-pressure to less than 90 mm Hg in twelve patients. When placebo-containing patches were substituted in these twelve(More)
