For many years governments and medical professionals around the world have
been fully aware that babies can and do die from adverse reactions to
vaccination. Many government and medical websites however, forcefully repeat
that there is no clear factual evidence of the causal link with vaccines and
sudden infant death syndrome or SIDS. This is totally incorrect and misleading.
The numbers of such vaccines deaths have never been truthfully reported, despite
freely available published information. Valdes-Dapena (1967. Sudden and
unexpected deaths in infancy: a review of the world literature 1954-1966) wrote:
"Sudden and unexpected death in infancy, in the United States alone, accounts for the loss of 15,000 to 25,000 human lives annually".
Baraff LJ et al (1983) Possible temporal association between diphtheria-tetanus toxoid-pertussis vaccination and sudden infant death syndrome Pediatr Infect Dis. 1983 Jan-Feb;2(1):7-11. PMID: 6835859; UI: 83169234. wrote:
"Because diphtheria and tetanus toxoids pertussis (DTP) vaccine is routinely given during the period of highest incidence of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), this study was undertaken to determine if there is a temporal association between DTP immunization and SIDS. Parents of 145 SIDS victims who died in Los Angeles County between January 1, 1979, and August 23, 1980, were contacted and interviewed regarding their child's recent immunization history. Fifty-three had received a DTP immunization. Of these 53, 27 had received a DTP immunization within 28 days of death. Six SIDS deaths occurred within 24 hours and 17 occurred within 1 week of DTP immunization."
In the magazine Here's Health, March 1980 in an article called The Whooping Cough Vaccination Professor Gordon T Stewart wrote:
"There is no doubt in my mind that in the UK alone some hundreds, if not thousands, of well infants have suffered irreparable brain damage needlessly and that their lives and those of their parents have been wrecked in consequence.
There are also, to my certain knowledge, a number of deaths after vaccination in the UK and the USA which await explanation. I see no use or justification for this kind of medical policy, and I think that the use of pertussis vaccine should be discontinued until, by better research or a better vaccine, these doubts are resolved."
Harris L. Coutler SIDS and Seizures 1996 wrote:
"Crib death" was so infrequent in the pre-vaccination era that it was not even mentioned in the statistics, but it started to climb in the 1950s with the spread of mass vaccination against diseases of childhood. It became a matter of public and professional concern and even acquired a new name, "sudden infant death of unknown origin,." or, for short, SIDS" Kalokerinos"
The list of articles, papers and studies go on and on.
Generally accepted statistics show that the majority of SIDS (cot death) infants die at the age of two to four months of age. Very few of these babies are below the age of two months. The government document SIDS Facts states:
"SIDS is the unexplained death of a baby under 1 year of age. Most SIDS deaths happen between 2 and 4 months of age. The number of babies dying of SIDS dramatically drops after 6 months of age."
In fact, statistics show that 80% of all SIDS die between 2 and 4 months. Amazingly 90% of all SIDS die under the age of 6 months.
Most children begin routine vaccinations at the age of 2 months, when they have Rotavirus, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b, Pneumococcal, and Inactivated Poliovirus. After the age of 6 months there are no further vaccinations until the age of 13 months. These facts are highly significant and yet somehow completely overlooked by present day governments and medical establishments.
In 1985-1986 Cotwatch, a pioneering true breathing monitor, was developed by Dr Viera Scheibner and her late husband Leif Karlsson (a Swedish electronics engineer specialising in patient monitoritng systems). A 'true breathing monitor' is different from other standard breathing monitors in that it's electronics separates the babies heart beat and breathing and only the breathing delayed the alarm. This is unlike all other monitors which take any movement as breathing.
Dr Scheibner says that this is the difference between life and death: the realities of stress response are that breathing stops first, while the heart is still beating. You must get an alarm before the heart stops in order to resuscitate the baby.
Previously researchers studying SIDS believed that babies were dying because of 'an inborn fault in the breathing control centre in the brain'. The breathing control centre of the brain is in the respiratory centre located in the lower part of the brain stem called the medulla oblongata. This regulates a persons breathing rhythm when they inhale and exhale.
Researchers have also studied the carotid body. The carotid body is a small "body" of tissue rich in capillaries, at the spot the carotid artery branches in the neck. These contain cells that sense the oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in blood and from which messages are dispatched to the medulla (in the brain) to regulate the heart rate. They established increased levels of dopamine and serotonin demonstrating increased stress response.
Dr Scheibner says:
"It is interesting, and even laudatory, to study carotid bodies and other aspects of physiology, however, it all boils down to one thing: iatrogenic disease. Orthodox medicine with its toxic medications and often deadly ´preventatives´ is creating more and more disease. A pandemic of chronic ill health, immunoreactive and autoimmne diseases (asthma, allergies, diabetes, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, cancer, leukaemia, brain, bone, lung and many other cancers), cardio-vascular and renal diseases, behavioural and learning problems, you name it, starts right in the early childhood with the unnecessary vaccinations. Billions are spent on research and development of new antibiotics and other drugs which would be quite unnecessary if the iatrogenic causes of so called modern diseases were recognised. Medical industry should not be a growing industry requiring more and more hospitals full of sick people. It should be a diminishing industry if it was doing its job properly. The Medicare system in Australia is as good as it gets, however, it is overburdened, overstretched and overused; admittedly, some 20% of all hospital admissions are for medication reactions.!"
Shortly after the Cotwatch studies were completed, Dr Viera Scheibner retired as a principle research scientist for the Department of Mineral Resources New South Wales. At this time, both Dr Scheibner and her husband were pro-vaccination. The evidence that the Cotwatch monitor revealed, changed Dr Scheibner's views about vaccination for ever. She has now dedicated her life to finding the truth about vaccines and vaccination. Dr Scheibner has since become a lecturer, an author and expert witness specialising in vaccine dangers, shaken baby syndrome (often caused by vaccines) and cot death.
The Cotwatch true breathing monitor
Cotwatch consisted of a box with the electronics and a sensor pad positioned under the infant´s mattress. No electrodes were attached to the baby so the baby had the full freedom of movement at all times. The soon developed Microprocessor Cotwatch monitor produced computer printouts of babies´ breathing patterns in the form of histograms and/or bar charts.
Microprocessor Cotwatch recorded the events in breathing: apnoeas and hypopnoeas. Apnoeas are pauses in breathing and up to a certain time limit (20 seconds) are normal. Hypopnoeas are episodes of shallow, below 5% of the normal unstressed breathing volume, breathing which represents a stress-induced breathing pattern. The events were logarithmically weighted (WAHD = weighted apnoea/hypopnoea density). The alarms indicated when the apnoeas and hypopnoeas occurred at and above 20 seconds duration; Scheibner and Karlsson called them warning alarms. Other doctors and researchers studying SIDS had consistently failed to achieve meaningful results because they had considered all alarms that happened when babies did not stop breathing as false alarms.
When Scheibner and Karlsson studied the charts they noticed that whenever the babies had had a vaccination the charts began to show clusters of stress induced breathing pattern, which followed the pattern of what they called critical hours and days.
This proved conclusively that it was the vaccines that were causing the babies to have periods of stress-induced breathing.
In 1991 Dr Viera Scheibner was invited to present the results of the data collection on babies breathing with Cotwatch breathing monitor to the Second National Immunisation Conference (Canberra, May 27-29; "Evidence of the association between non-specific stress syndrome, DPT injections and cot death": 90-91). She published a more detailed report in Journal of ACNEM (2004; 23 (3): 1-5. Dynamics of critical days as part of the dynamics of non-specific stress syndrome discovered during monitoring with Cotwatch breathing monitor). This information has been freely available ever since. It is even referenced on Wikipedia
Dr Scheibner reflects:
"It was clear to me that even some pro-vaccination paediatrician in Australia realised and recognised that we were showing THE EVIDENCE of the causal link between vaccinations and SIDS. That´s why they did not want Cotwatch to warn the parents. You would be surprised how many were telling us "Keep up the good work, You are looking in the right direction".
In 1986-1989, the years of the Cotwatch development and research, the babies were only given the DPT and the Oral Poliovirus. Now the babies are having far more vaccinations.
The Cotwatch monitor was a properly and appropriately tested battery equipment listed with the TGA or Therapeutic Goods administration. Leif died in 1994. Sadly because one needs an engineer when one is distributing a monitor, Dr Scheibner had de-listed Cotwatch when Leif Karlsson died. Since Leif had interlocked the electronics, instead of opting for an unaffordable patent, the secrets of the Cotwatch monitor died with him.
The Critical Days Explained
In her article Dynamics of critical days as part of the dynamics of non-specific stress syndrome discovered during monitoring with Cotwatch breathing monitor Dr Scheibner describes the critical days through a series of charts and histograms. These describe the breathing patterns of babies before and after the routine vaccinations. In her research, every baby was its own control; one must know what the stress level was in breathing before and after vaccination in the same baby.
