Ceiling Fans Can Reduce the Risk of SIDS!
Ceiling fans can come in handy at all times of the year, whether it be for keeping your home cool during the summer or, if turned clockwise, trap heat to provide warmth in all the rooms in your home. They also serve as an incredibly cost-effective alternative to your average cooling and heating system. However, according to recent reports, ceiling fans are also beneficial in an entirely different capacity—by reducing the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
SIDS is unbelievably tragic, and currently makes up for 45% of infant deaths in the United States alone. Common risk factors of SIDS include exposure to cigarette smoke and being premature or having a low birth weight. While doctors have struggled to explain exactly why SIDS occurs, it seem ceiling fans can reduce the risk of SIDS by an amazing 72%. Infants who sleep in a room on a firm mattress with proper ventilation are much less at risk for SIDS and avoid the risk of becoming overheated. The ceiling fan is saving lives by delivering better air flow and keeping infants comfortable during rest.
