Pediatrics is the specialty dedicated to the child. Visits to the paediatrician are initially weekly for the first 2 weeks of life, then monthly until 6 months and quarterly from 9 to 24 months. After 2 years, an annual visit is sufficient.

In addition to keeping the vaccination calendar up to date, the paediatrician supervises the child’s growth and proper physical and mental development.

He or she also has a role in the prevention, advice, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses.

INFORMATION: the paediatrician interviews the parents and the child, if he/she is 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, he assesses the child’s cognitive functions, psychological state, and level of development.

DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT: The paediatrician shares his diagnosis with the parents and the child if he is 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.
