APNEAS DURING SLEEP IN INFANTS - POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIP WITH SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME SCIENCE Guilleminault, C., PERAITA, R., Souquet, M., Dement, W. C. 1975; 190 (4215): 677-679

Abstract

Several types of apnea are described in premature infants and in infants who have survived breathing-stoppage episodes which may be related to the sudden infant death syndrome. Upper airway apnea appears to induce the greatest changes: oxygen desaturation is more pronounced than in a central apnea of similar duration, and secondary cardiac changes are observed earlier and are more severe.
