Pacifier should be offered to infants at naptime and bedtime during the first year. It does not need to be reinserted once the infant falls asleep. If the infant refuses the pacifier, he/she should not be forced to take it. The protective effect of pacifier persists throughout the sleep period, even if it falls out of the infant’s mouth. Pacifiers should not be hung around the infant’s neck, in order to avoid the risk of strangulation. Pacifiers attached to infant clothing should not be used during infant’s sleep.

Metabolic disorders, neurological diseases, cardiac arrhythmias and child abuse [28]. An ALTE event is considered an abortive SIDS, and infants experiencing an ALTE could possibly be saved by continuous cardio-respiratory monitoring [3, 28, 39, 52]. On one hand, an infant dying of SIDS can be saved with very prompt cardiorespiratory resuscitation maneuvers, resulting in a near-SIDS event. On the other hand, it should be underlined that these maneuvers, if not properly performed, can cause damage to the cardiac conduction system due to the intense force exerted on the interventricular septum [139, 141, 172, 202].

Such morphological heterogeneity reflects the different physiological characteristics of the specialized conduction myocardium in its various centers, in relation to both its autonomic nature and its conductive role.
