Pediatrics studies children's diseases, anatomy and physiology of their bodies, as well as methods of treatment, rehabilitation and prevention of diseases. Therefore, we can say that a pediatrician is a GP for children, an all-round doctor who has a proper understanding of both children's diseases and many other issues of different body systems.
A pediatrician can treat a child independently, or can refer him to the right specialist.
In addition, a pediatrician is a specialist who not only treats the child, but also helps the parent to raise him healthy, offering the necessary preventive measures in time, which is especially important.
Why do patients choose pediatricians of Euromed Clinic?
Euromed pediatricians are attentive and empathetic specialists, they adhere to evidence-based medicine and do not prescribe unnecessary medications. The pediatrician looks after the child’s health, knows and remembers his previous diseases and, what is especially important, finds a common language with both the child and the parents.
What diseases does a pediatrician treat?
A pediatrician deals with all specific children’s diseases, for example:
- Acute respiratory viral infection and its complications (bronchitis, pneumonia, etc.);
- Intestinal infectious diseases and bowel disorders;
- Bronchial asthma;
- Kidney disease (glomerulonephritis);
- Children’s infectious diseases (chickenpox, scarlet fever, etc.);
- Rheumatism and many others.
When should I visit a pediatrician?
There is a recommended schedule. In the first year of a child’s life the parents meet with the pediatrician monthly (at the clinic or at home), in the second year, the pediatrician examines the child once every three months, then once a year. Besides, people usually see the pediatrician if the child has:
- cough, bad cold in case of acute respiratory viral infection;
- vomiting, diarrhea;
- stomachache or headache;
- allergic conditions;
- in any other cases when the child has any complaints or issues.
Diagnostic methods of a pediatrician:
- Examination of the child, discussion with parents and the child;
- Lab tests (blood, urine, stool), if necessary;
- X-ray and other examinations.
What happens during a pediatrician’s appointment
Unlike an “adult” GP, the first thing that a pediatrician has to do is to gain the child’s trust. Then, after obtaining his “consent”, the doctor makes a thorough examination. The pediatrician has a conversation with parents and the child (if the latter can speak). The doctor reviews case history, tests results and prescribes additional investigations, if necessary.
If the picture is clear, the pediatrician decides what to do: either he will treat the patient independently, or he will send the patient to another medical specialist.
