Paediatrics

 The word paediatrics and its cognates mean "healer of children"; they derive from two Greek words: πα?ς (pais "child") and ?ατρ?ς (iatros "doctor, healer"). Pediatricians work both in hospitals, particularly those working in its specialized subfields such as neonatology, and as primary care physicians who specialize in children. The body size differences are paralleled 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 major difference between pediatrics and adult medicine is that children are minors and, in most jurisdictions, cannot make decisions for themselves

 

Subspecialties

Adolescent medicine

 

  • Pediatric Otolaryngology

     Paediatrics is a holistic specialty, focusing on the child within their family. It aims to minimise the adverse effects of disease, while allowing children to live as normal     a   life as possible.

  Paediatricians may offer any of these three levels of patient care:

     primary care in the community and general practice settings

  • secondary care, perhaps in a hospital setting
  • tertiary care, usually in larger district general hospitals and teaching hospitals.

 General paediatrics remains the bedrock of the service, but there are opportunities to develop close links with other areas of medicine such as primary care, child and adolescent psychiatry and public health. Within paediatrics, specialists may develop skills in a variety of medical fields, including community paediatrics and neonatal intensive care.

Paediatrics is a forward-looking specialty, with research frequently leading to impressive and exciting new medical discoveries.
