On choking and ingestion hazards for children in the United States

Abstract : The risks of Unintentional Suffocation injuries in the U.S. must be reconsidered in view of the existent mortality and morbidity statistics. In particular, fatal injuries due to the Sudden Unexpected Infant Death Syndrome [SUIDS] should be treated on their own and separated from this group. Because of a non-appropriate nomenclature, the risks of injuries due to Aspiration and/or Ingestion of Foreign Bodies have been overestimated in the recent decades, and should be reconsidered by a factual scrutiny of the statistical data.
