Who is a pediatrician?

Pediatricians (بچوں کا ڈاکٹر) or child specialists (بچوں کا ڈاکٹر) are healthcare providers who deal specifically with medical problems faced by children.

A pediatrician looks 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۔

What is Pediatrics?

Pediatrics or Paediatrics is the field of medicine dealing with the medical care of children. A doctor who specializes in pediatrics is known as a paediatrician or a child specialist.

Paediatrics is a vast field. The word pediatrics is derived from two Greek words “pias” meaning child and “iatros” meaning doctor or healer. Hence the word paediatrician translates to doctor of children. Paediatrics aims to reduce deaths in children and treat common problems and conditions that affect children.

When should you see a pediatrician?

Frequent visits to a child specialist in Rawalpindi or pediatrician 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 from a pediatrician 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.

Consultations with the best pediatrician in Rawalpindi 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?

A pediatrician (بچوں کا ڈاکٹر) tracks the health of the baby, as well as his/her growth, developmental milestones, emotional development, physical wellbeing, eating habits, vaccination history and sleeping habits.

A primary care pediatrician may 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 and 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. Properly educating the parents regarding the risk factors of such diseases can help save infants from the severity of disease and lower the infant mortality rate.
