Finally, a possible explanation for SIDS. Babies that die suddenly and unexpectedly have been found to have underlying brain stem abnormalities that are not normal, before death. The brain stem affects the breathing, the heart rate, blood pressure and temperature during sleep. These abnormalities prevent sleeping babies from waking up when they re-breath to much carbon dioxide because they're not getting enough oxygen or become overheated.
