Pediatrician in Kharkiv

Pediatrics is a branch of medicine that studies methods of treating and prevention of diseases in children from the first day of life.

The children’s pediatrician assesses the general condition of the child, controls his physical and neuropsychic development, and provides recommendations on the prevention of infections and chronic pathologies.

Services:

A good pediatrician manages his young patient from the day of birth, has a full medical history and a family history. This helps the doctor not only to diagnose quickly and treat pathologies, but also to prevent their relapses.

Scheduled pediatrician consultations are carried out:

  • in the first month after the birth of a child: the doctor checks the reflexes, controls the weight gain and growth of the newborn;
  • monthly during the first year of life: the pediatrician examines the baby for possible developmental disabilities, provides the recommendations for strengthening muscle tone, and learns from parents about nutrition and sleep;
  • after a year: visiting a pediatrician is necessary to vaccinate a child.

Unscheduled visits to the children's polyclinic are necessary if the baby’s well-being deteriorates and symptoms of the disease appear.

What symptoms should be the reason to visit a pediatrician?

Any deviation from the developmental norms should alert the parents and cause the appointment to the pediatrician. The most alarming symptoms in newborns are follows:

  • atony and apathy;
  • lack of interest in surrounding objects;
  • developmental delays;
  • asymmetrical folds on the body;
  • increased tearfulness;
  • increase in body temperature;
  • a change in the nature of urination or defecation;
  • the appearance of impurities in the urine or stool;
  • poor weight gain;
  • refusal to eat.

Loud unreasonable crying, restless sleep, laborious breathing can indicate the presence of a disease.

Older children should visit the children’s clinic in case of:

  • rash;
  • nausea and vomiting;
  • pale skin;
  • general weakness;
  • dyspnoea after exercise;
  • cough;
  • nasal congestion and other symptoms of infection.

If a child complains of pain in any part of the body, became irritable or hyposthenic, this is also a reason to make an appointment for a consultation with a pediatrician.

Examination by a doctor is conducted in the presence of parents or guardians. The pediatrician listens to complaints, conducts a visual examination, measures height, weight, body temperature, palpates the stomach. General urine and blood tests, and additional examinations may be prescribed. Based on their results, a diagnosis is made. Also, a doctor can refer the child to examination by a single-subject specialist: an ophthalmologist, a neurologist, an endocrinologist, and so on.

What is dangerous in treatment of children at home?

The appearance of a minor fever or rhinorrhea does not always alert parents. In some cases, adults decide to cure the child according to the usual pattern: give anti-inflammatory drugs and administer vasoconstrictor drops. But self-medication can lead to serious consequences. Many diseases in the early stages look like a common cold or allergy. Uncontrolled medication intake will only distort the symptoms and make it difficult to diagnose in the future. Therefore, it is better to bring the child to the clinic immediately. Online appointment to the pediatrician will enable to avoid queues and visit the doctor at a predetermined time. Examination does not require prior preparation.
