A brief intro to Pediatricians

Who is a pediatrician?

A pediatrician or a child specialist (بچوں کا ڈاکٹر) is a healthcare provider who deals specifically with medical problems faced by children. They look after the mental, physical, and behavioral wellbeing of children all the way from birth till adulthood. Pediatricians are specially trained to look after infants and babies who have unique medical needs, serious illnesses as well as minor health issues.

Children have different physical and emotional needs, in comparison to adults, which is why their medical needs are not fulfilled by doctors who primarily treat adults. In fact, in certain cases, pediatric care may begin even before conception and throughout pregnancy.

ایک بچوں کا ماہر ڈاکٹر کون ہوتا ہے؟

ایک بچوں کا ماہر امراض یا بچوں کا ڈاکٹر صحت کی دیکھ بھال کرنے والا ہے جو خاص طور پر بچوں کو درپیش طبی پریشانیوں سے نمٹتا ہے۔ وہ پیدائش سے لے کر جوانی تک بچوں کی ذہنی ، جسمانی اور طرز عمل کی دیکھ بھال کرتے ہیں۔ بچوں کے ماہر امراض کو خاص طور پر ان بچوں کی دیکھ بھال کے لئے تربیت دی جاتی ہے جن کی منفرد طبی ضروریات ہوں ، سنگین بیماریاں ہوں اور اس کے ساتھ ساتھ صحت کے معمولی مسائل ہوں۔ بالغوں کے مقابلے میں بچوں کی جسمانی اور جذباتی ضروریات مختلف ہوتی ہیں ، یہی وجہ ہے کہ ان کی طبی ضروریات ڈاکٹروں کے ذریعہ پوری نہیں ہوتی ہیں جو بنیادی طور پر بڑوں کا علاج کرتے ہیں۔ در حقیقت ، کچھ معاملات میں ، بچوں کی دیکھ بھال حاملہ ہونے سے پہلے ہی اور حمل کے دوران ہی شروع ہوسکتی ہے۔

When should you see a pediatrician?

Frequent visits to a child specialist are expected soon after the birth of a baby—to schedule circumcisions and postnatal checkups. These visits can be for health/wellness check-ups, developmental milestones, and immunizations. Children are expected to get six checkups a year until the age of 2. These visits become less frequent as the child grows older, and will be reduced to just one a year after the child becomes 5.

Visits to the pediatrician (بچوں کا ڈاکٹر) are an opportunity for the caregivers & parents to ask pertinent questions regarding the health of their child, and to clear any ambiguities about their health.

آپ کو ایک بچوں کے ماہر ڈاکٹر سے کب ملاقات کرنی چاہئے؟

بچے کی پیدائش کے فورا بعد ختنہ کرنے اور بعد از پیدائش کے چیک اپ کے لئے بچوں کے ماہر سے متعدد دوروں کی توقع کی جاتی ہے۔ یہ دورے صحت / تندرستی سے متعلق جانچ ، ترقیاتی سنگ میل اور حفاظتی ٹیکوں کے لئے ہوسکتے ہیں۔ توقع کی جاتی ہے کہ 2 سال کی عمر تک بچوں کو ایک سال میں چھ چیک اپ ملیں گے۔ جب بچے بڑے ہوجاتے ہیں تو یہ دورے کم سے کم ہوجاتے ہیں ، اور بچے کی عمر 5 سال ہونے کے بعد سال میں بس ایک بار ہو جاتے ہیں۔ ماہر اطفال یا بچوں کے ڈاکٹر کا دورا بچوں کی دیکھ بھال کرنے والوں اور والدین کے لئے اپنے بچے کی صحت سے متعلق مناسب سوالات پوچھنے اور ان کی صحت کے بارے میں کسی بھی قسم کے ابہام کو دور کرنے کا ایک موقع ہوتا ہے۔

What are the main areas of concern of a pediatrician?

Pediatricians (بچوں کا ڈاکٹر) track the health of the baby, as well as their growth, developmental milestones, emotional development, physical wellbeing, eating habits, vaccination history and sleeping habits. Primary care pediatricians also deal with injuries in children, including fractures and dislocations. They treat & manage acute as well as chronic infections in children and prescribe medication such as painkillers & antibiotics.

Pediatric specialists, on the other hand, deal with specific systems and have more training as well as knowledge in dealing with a special organ system.

What are the most common pediatric diseases in Pakistan?

According to a study, the pediatric population in Pakistan suffers most commonly from infectious diseases. These include the following:
Disease Percentage of Patients
Pneumonia 63.5%
Meningitis 20%
Acute Watery Diarrhea 8.5%
Typhoid 4%
Tuberculosis 2%
Malaria 2%

Studies show that the most common infectious diseases are waterborne, and are more prevalent due to a lack of awareness of risk factors in the public.

What does a Pediatrician do?

A pediatrician (بچوں کا ڈاکٹر) helps diagnose medical conditions in infants, children, and teens. Depending on the condition, a primary care pediatrician may be able to fully treat the child but in some complicated cases, pediatric specialists may be needed.

Apart from treating medical conditions, many child specialists also perform regular wellness and health checkups as well as immunizations. Additionally, they may give health advice to parents & caregivers with regards to children and their care. Pediatricians look out for any behavioral abnormalities and developmental delays for small children in whom the signs of delay are not very evident early on. This is why frequent check-ups are essential when the child is very young, as early identification and management can lead to better outcomes later on in life.

ایک بچوں کا ماہر ڈاکٹر کیا کرتا ہے؟

ایک ماہر اطفال (بچوں کا ڈاکٹر) ، بچوں اور نوعمروں میں طبی حالات کی تشخیص میں مدد کرتا ہے۔ حالت کو مد نظر رکھ کر ، ایک بنیادی نگہداشت ماہر اطفال بچے کا مکمل طور پر علاج کرنے کے قابل ہوسکتا ہے لیکن کچھ پیچیدہ معاملات میں ، پیڈیاٹرک ماہرین کی ضرورت ہوسکتی ہے۔ طبی حالات کا علاج کرنے کے علاوہ ، بہت سے بچوں کے ماہرین باقاعدگی سے تندرستی اور صحت سے متعلق چیک اپ کے ساتھ ساتھ حفاظتی ٹیکوں کو بھی انجام دیتے ہیں۔ مزید برآں ، وہ والدین اور دیکھ بھال کرنے والوں کو بچوں اور ان کی دیکھ بھال کے حوالے سے صحت کے مشورے دے سکتے ہیں۔ بچوں کے ماہر ڈاکٹر ان چھوٹے بچوں کے لئے کسی بھی طرز عمل کی غیر معمولی صورتحال اور ترقیاتی تاخیر کی تلاش کرتے ہیں جن میں تاخیر کے آثار بہت جلد واضح نہیں ہوتے ہیں۔ یہی وجہ ہے کہ جب بچہ بہت چھوٹا ہوتا ہے تو بار بار جانچ پڑتال کرنا ضروری ہوتا ہے ، کیونکہ ابتدائی شناخت اور انتظام زندگی میں بعد میں بہتر نتائج کا باعث بن سکتا ہے۔
