Paediatrics is a medical specialty that manages medical conditions affecting babies, children and young people.
Paediatrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of all types of health problems that affect young patients – from infants and children to adolescents.
The age limit for paediatric patients may vary, but is usually between 18 and 21 years of age, at which point the patient transitions to adult medical care.
Paediatrics, which focuses on all aspects of medical care that a child may need, recognises the myriads of differences between the medical concerns of young and old patients. The most important of these centers on the developing or growing bodies of paediatric patients. Since their bodies are smaller and enter into different stages of growth throughout the years, their medical needs also change drastically, even within a short span of time. In addition, several other factors come into play; for example, medical care for a newborn also involves checking and managing congenital defects, whereas caring for a toddler also involves identifying developmental issues that may cause potential health problems for the child. Another unique consideration is that paediatrics also involves guiding, educating, and sometimes correcting parents or guardians on proper childcare.
Paediatrics also take into consideration some special factors and additional limitations with regards to the safety and appropriateness of treatments that can be used. It is responsible not just for diagnosing and prescribing treatment but also for ensuring that the treatment prescribed is age-appropriate and safe for the immature physiology of young patients.
