A pediatrician is a medical physician who specializes in the care of children. They have undergone special education in the health and illnesses of babies, teens, and young adults, and the majority of pediatricians are certified after passing a comprehensive exam.
Pediatrician's job is to provide preventive health care for kids in good health and medical care for kids who are acutely or chronically ill. Pediatricians also provide parents with support and advice with issues such as growth and development, nutrition, safety and prevention, and emotional wellness to foster a lifetime of good health.
Your child should not only see the pediatrician for an illness as it is also important to schedule child-care exams regularly, beginning in infancy. These routine examinations provide the best opportunity for the physician to watch the progress of your child’s physical and mental growth and development; to detect problems through screening tests; to counsel and teach parents; to provide immunizations, and to get to know one another. So, these visits are strongly suggested as part of preventive pediatric care.
Pediatricians are the physicians who are specially trained to care for newborns to 21-year-olds, and some can keep their patients through college. Research indicates that there is not one correct age for kids to transition to the adult family doctor as it depends on the needs and desires of the patient.
Pediatricians do not deliver babies. But in the hospitals or birth centers, children's doctors are always notified about the delivery of a newborn baby. So, pediatricians or your baby's doctor are always standing by to take care of the baby.
A nurse will often handle the first part of the appointment by taking the baby to a scale to weigh and measure him. The nurse may also extend his limbs to measure height and width, and will also use a tape measure to determine the circumference of the head. There are a few main things that the physician will accomplish during the baby's initial visit. He will examine the baby, educate parents, and will ask and answer questions. As every pediatrician's approach differs, some pediatricians will examine and provide information at the same time. The doctor will look at the baby's eyes, nose, ears, skin, and limbs, and also test that she is responsive and has proper reflective actions. The physician will also look for signs of jaundice or hernias and will examine the umbilical cord for signs of infection and proper healing.
