We love playing with kids. We may or might have throwing up a baby high or shake them but we don’t know what happens to their internal organs. It leads to ‘ Shaken Baby Syndrome ‘ .

When a young baby is shaken, the blood vessels of the eye as well as of the brain hemorrhage, leading to loss of sight. Most common visual defects resulting from SBS include: Retinal hemorrhaging (bleeding) Retinal detachment. Retinoschisis. Remember that blood vessels in children are inherently weaker than they are in adults. The same is true in their retinas.

Shaken baby syndrome — also known as abusive head trauma, shaken impact syndrome, inflicted head injury or whiplash shake syndrome — is a serious brain injury resulting from forcefully shaking an infant or toddler.

Shaken baby syndrome destroys a child’s brain cells and prevents his or her brain from getting enough oxygen. Shaken baby syndrome is a form of child abuse that can result in permanent brain damage or death.

Shaken baby syndrome is preventable. Help is available for parents who are at risk of harming a child. Parents also can educate other caregivers about the dangers of shaken baby syndrome.
