A Center for the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome has been established in 1981. Active research involves clinical prospective studies and basic research, mostly aimed at testing our cardiac theory for SIDS. The bereaved families enter in a follow-up program with specific psychological support. At risk babies are evaluated for cardio-respiratory abnormalities and repeatedly controlled. Parents of victims are in the process of forming a group with the objective to support and inform the families of new victims. This is the first attempt to approach systematically the SIDS problem in Italy.
