Sudden unexpected infant death

SUID, synonym to sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI)

These are the sudden and unexpected deaths of neonates and infants no matter if they can be explained or not. Thus, the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) are the inexplicable cases of SUID (AAP, 2016​​​​​​​).

SUID can occur through "(un)intentional suffocation, asphyxia, entrapment, infection, ingestions, metabolic diseases, arrhythmic-associated cardiac channelopathies, and (un)intentional or (non-)accidental trauma (AAP, 2016).
