The National Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Resource Center was established in 1980 to provide information and educational materials on sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), apnea, and related issues. It maintains a library of standard reference materials covering etiology, epidemiology, research, counseling, effects on families, legal aspects, training emergency personnel, treatment, and prevention of SIDS. The Resource Center responds to questions and has compiled annotated bibliographies on a variety of topics.
