Children require a specialised branch as their body sizes are different and are characterised by maturational changes. The smaller body of an infant or neonate is substantially different physiologically from that of an adult. Congenital defects, genetic variance and developmental issues are of greater concern to pediatricians than they often are to adult physicians. A common adage is that children are not simply “little adults”. The clinician must take into account the immature physiology of the infant or child when considering symptoms, prescribing medications and diagnosing illnesses.
Pediatricians are doctors who manage the health of your child including physical, behavior and mental health issues. They’re trained to diagnose and treat childhood illnesses from minor health problems to serious diseases. They’ll see your child many times from birth to age 2 and once a year from ages 2 to 5 for “well-child visits.” After age 5, your pediatrician will likely continue to see your child every year for annual checkups.
The field of pediatrics recognizes classic stages in growth and development, but these are artificial since a child’s growth and development constitute a continuum. A baby changes at an astonishing rate during the newborn period and early infancy. Before you know it the baby becomes a toddler, next a child and after a little more than a decade is already a teen. It is a busy, challenging period.
