From infancy through young adulthood, the physical, mental, and social health of children is the focus of the medical science field of pediatrics. From preventative health care to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic disorders, pediatric care covers a wide range of medical services.
Pediatrics is a field of study that examines the effects of illness and dysfunction on a child’s growth as well as the biological, social, and environmental impacts on a growing child. In terms of anatomy, physiology, immunology, psychology, development, and metabolism, children are different from adults.
When necessary, a pediatrician can appropriately describe the health status of the child, act as a consultant, and use other specialists as consultants, ideally within the framework of or in addition to the physician-led medical home. The pediatrician supports initiatives to foster a loving environment because the home and family have a significant impact on the welfare of the child. Such assistance include educating patients and their parents about healthy living and providing proactive guidance.
