From September 18 to 22, 2023, the Referal Centers of SUDI and parents’ associations mobilized for the national week for the prevention of sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI).
We estimate that up to 150 cases of SUDI could be prevented each year if families were better informed about the risk factors for sleep-related accidents. This event is therefore an opportunity to discuss risk factors for SUDI and to remind families of good sleeping practices.
At Nantes University Hospital, the team once again mobilized throughout the week to spread prevention messages in the maternity, pediatrics, pediatric emergency and children’s surgery departments (workshops, quizzes, posters, distribution of flyers, intervention by the tobacco nurse, etc.).
The Naitre et Vivre association has a French prevention video on its website, produced by Dr Jules Fougères, which you can watch here => Le lit des 7 erreurs
