Total obstruction of the airways caused all respiratory efforts to stop on 15 occasions in 10 preterm babies. This was not seen in 60 studies on 38 term babies. These findings suggest that failure to achieve an oral airway may not be the only mechanism by which upper airway obstruction might cause the cot death syndrome.
