At the crib a camera sees and hears the baby's breath
patterns. Software notes any SIDS correlated breathing
pattern such as cessation of breathing.
Then the technology makes acoustically loud blips
restarting breathing from the baby's startle response. A
mechanical crib shaker shakes the
crib. I have no idea if
it would contribute but a series of bright photoflash
lights sufficient to wake up a baby could contribute as
It is possible to administer anti-SIDS drugs to the baby
A transdermal drug delivery solution such as DMSO with
adrenaline is simply sprayed out of a nozzle onto any
areas of the baby's skin the camera can see, There are
much better transdermal drug
velocitizers than DMSO, but DMSO is one.
liposomes wouldn't get past the baby's skin at a not-
breathing 1 minute window.
