Blei und plötzlicher Kindstod — Untersuchungen an Blutproben von betroffenen Säuglingen

  • G. Drasch

Zusammenfassung

Die Ergebnisse zahlreicher Untersuchungen legen die Vermutung nahe, daß sehr unterschiedliche Störungen im Organismus des Säuglings zum Bild des plötzlichen Kindstodes („sudden infant death Syndrome“, SIDS) führen können. Nach dem heutigen Stand der Forschung handelt es sich beim plötzlichen Kindstod dementsprechend um ein polyätiologisches Geschehen (Wilske 1984).
