Also known as SBS is a form of child abuse; it is the collection of signs and symptoms resulting from the violent shaking of an infant or small child. It is estimated every year in America that 1,200 – 1,400 children are shaken for who medical treatment is sought. Unfortunately, approximately 25-30% die as a result of these unnecessary injuries. The majority of the remaining victims will have complications for the rest of their lives. The National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome (NCSBS) has programs and networks to help the general public on this phenomenon.
