In brief: YES

This is an ekg diagnosis and it means that there is an imbalance in the sympathetic (autonomic/automatic) innervation of the heart from the left stellate ganglion (the machnery that delivers control messages to the heart).
. This important info was published years ago. It may respond to vitamin therapy and a more appropriate diet. See a nutritionist doctor.

In brief: Definitions matter

The full definition of the syndrome is sudden & unexplained infant death.
If they were known to have prolonged QT it would not fit the definition. Four decades ago some cases of sepsis and metabolic disease were mislabeled SIDS . It could represent some.Many such ideas have been proposed aand looked at yet research is hampered by the unpredictable nature of the event.
