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.
Children’s health was once a part of adult medicine. It emerged in the 19th and early 20th century as a medical specialty because of the gradual awareness that the health problems of children are different from those of grown-ups. It was also recognized that a child’s response to illness, medications, and the environment depends upon the age of the child.
Once the baby is delivered, there are new and important matters to ponder, such as breastfeeding, new born, screening tests, and sleeping safety. All too soon, there are health-care appointments to be kept, for example, for well-baby checkups and vaccinations. These are followed by other challenges, such as when to introduce solid foods and to start toilet training and when to see the dentist.
