Course of the visit
INFORMATION: The paediatrician interviews the parents and the child, if old enough to speak, to find out the reason for the consultation, allergies, personal, medical, and family history, daily activities, and lifestyle.
PHYSICAL EXAMINATION: Height and weight measurements, auscultation with a stethoscope, palpation of the abdomen, ENT check, and, if necessary, temperature measurement. In addition to this, they assess the child’s cognitive functions, psychological state, and level of development.
DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT: The paediatrician shares their diagnosis with the parents and the child, if old enough to understand. The paediatrician may prescribe treatment or additional tests (X-rays, analyses) or refer the child to a specialist or therapist. A follow-up appointment is often scheduled.
