Pediatrics

PediatricsPediatrics is the field of medicine that deals with the care of children. A doctor that specializes in pediatrics is called a pediatrician.

A pediatrician treats patients from birth until they are 16 to 21 years old, depending on the doctor.
This includes the care of babies, children, and teenagers. The care of children typically includes vaccinations and care of childhood diseases.

While pediatricians treat the same conditions and diseases of adults when they are present in children, they do so taking into account the development stage of the child.

In addition, some health issues are more important when present in children than when present in adults, for example, congenital defects, developmental issues, body size, body weight, body structure, as well as any illness that can have long-term effects.

Legality plays a factor in pediatrics, since children don’t have the legal ability to make decisions about their medical care. Typically only parents or legal guardians are empowered to make decisions about the medical care of a child.
