A pediatrician or a neonatal specialist specializes in the investigations, diagnosis and management of conditions and illnesses affecting children. Pediatric medicine is an important specialty especially because of the still developing immune system in children. As a result, a pediatrician should be adept at recognizing childhood illnesses early so that early intervention is instituted.
Symptoms indicative of diseases in children include inability to eat, high level of irritability, frequent crying, inability to sleep or disturbed sleeping patterns and low levels of activity. A pediatrician (baby doctor) should be able to catch these symptoms early enough to institute therapy. As in many conditions, earlier intervention such as ADHD treatment, is beneficial for a better outcome.
Conditions handled by pediatrics are common diseases affecting children such as colic in babies, allergies, colds, flu, diarrhea, asthma, swallowing of foreign bodies and behavioral disorders. Pediatricians also handle congenital (born with) disorders such as Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, autistic disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and others. Pediatricians collaborate with other medical specialists such as neurologists, cardiologists, orthopedic surgeons and occupational therapists in managing diseases affecting children.
