La posicion en decubito prono durante el sueno ha sido referida como el factor de riesgo mas importante en relacion con la MSL. En nuestro pais no se conocia la prevalencia del decubito prono ni se habia estudiado su relacion con la MSI. En Navarra, segun una encuesta efectuada sobre una muestra de 424 ninos, nacidos entre el 1-2-92 y el 1-2-93, el 86, 5% de los ninos dormian en decubitoprono, el 5, 6% en supino y el 3, 5% sobre el costado. En el mes de marzo de 1993 se inicio una campana… 

Queratitis por Shigella sonney : Aportación de un caso

Shigella sonnei es un patógeno intestinal, muy contagioso, que en nuestro medio se aísla preferentemente como agente causal de enteritis en la población infantil(1,2). Con mucha menor frecuencia


The present review analyses the general conditions needed to understand SIDS, showing that this, like all other human conditions in health and disease, represents the confluence of specific environmental risk factors interacting in complex metabolic ways.

Sleeping prone and the risk of sudden infant death syndrome.

Analysis of reports that show a relationship between sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and the prone sleeping position in infants suggests that avoiding the prone position for infants in the first 6 months of life could reduce the number of SIDS deaths by as much as 50%.

Ethnic differences in infant-rearing practices and their possible relationship to the incidence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

Signs of marked differences in the infant rearing practices favoured by Asians and whites are demonstrated and lend support to the concept that the prone position and separate bedrooms may be contributors to the development of sudden infant death.

Factors potentiating the risk of sudden infant death syndrome associated with the prone position.

When infants sleep prone, the elevated risk of SIDS is increased by each of four factors: the use of natural-fiber mattresses, swaddling, recent illness, and theUse of heating in bedrooms.

Epidemiology of sudden infant death syndrome in Japan

Sudden infant death syndrome cases in Japan were found to occur more frequently when infants were < 6 months old, at home and sleeping alone, but less in the winter and between midnight and early morning, while there was little difference between the numbers in prone and supine sleeping positions at discovery.

Sudden infant death syndrome: epidemiological comparisons between South Australia and communities with a different incidence.

Way in which the Adelaide winter peak may be avoided is discussed, including abandoning prone sleeping for infants in Adelaide and there is a lower incidence of SIDS in communities that invariably use the supine sleeping position for infants than in those who do not.

Evaluation of government's compaign to reduce risk of cot death

This study compared the way mothers cared for their infants before and after the Department of Health's "Back to Sleep" campaign, which advised that babies should not sleep on their front, be exposed to cigarette smoke, or be overheated.

An overview of retrospective case‐control studies investigating the relationship between prone sleeping position and SIDS

A critical overview of 19 case‐control studies that have investigated the relationship between prone sleeping position and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is presented, confirming an overall higher risk of SIDS in infants who usually sleep prone.

Sociodemographic factors associated with sleeping position and location.

It was shown that the majority (86.4%) of New Zealand parents now place their infants to sleep on their sides, a marked contrast to previous New Zealand studies which showed a reversed pattern, with most infants put to sleep prone.

Can the fall in Avon's sudden infant death rate be explained by changes in sleeping position?

The fall in mortality can be almost entirely accounted for by the reduction in prone sleeping, suggesting a causal relation exists between side and supine positions, and recommend supine as the safest sleeping position for babies.

The epidemiological evidence and the evidence from intervention are now so strong that it is fully justified to advice against the general use of the prone sleeping position for babies.
