Session 1General and Clinical Pediatrics
In the most simplified words, Pediatrics is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. As per the records, The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends people be under pediatric care up to the age of 21. The General Pediatric care varies from Congenital defects, genetic variance to developmental issues which are of greater concern to pediatricians than they often are to adult physicians.
Session 2Neonatology , Perinatology and Breastfeeding
Neonatology consists of the medical care of newborn infants, especially the ill or premature newborn. It is a hospital-based specialty, and is usually practiced in neonatal intensive care units. Maternal–fetal medicine/perinatology is a branch of medicine that focuses on managing health concerns of the mother and fetus prior to, during, and shortly after pregnancy. Maternal–fetal medicine specialists are physicians who subspecialize within the field of obstetrics.
Session 3ADHD/ Autism
Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties with social interaction and communication. Autism is associated with a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Risk factors during pregnancy include certain infections, such as rubella, and toxins including valproic acid, alcohol, cocaine, pesticides and air pollution. Autism affects information processing in the brain by altering how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize. It is very common in children nowadays.
Session 4Pediatric Immunology & Infectious Disease
Children suffers from allergies or other problems with their immune system, and a pediatric allergist/immunologist has special skills to treat those children. The child’s immune system fights infections. If the child has allergies, his/her immune system wrongly reacts to things that are usually harmless such as pollen, dust, mold spores, insect stings, food, and medications. This reaction may cause his/her body to respond with health problems such as asthma, hay fever, hives, eczema (a rash), or a very severe and unusual reaction called anaphylaxis.
Session 5Child Nutrition and Development
The most common problem in children development is their eating habits. Most of the real goals that parents have for their kids is their proper development in one way or another. Children’s nutrition plays a pivotal role in how kids grow up so it is important to be concerned about what they eat, and how much of it they eat. Balanced nutrition is the key to healthy development in children. However, a lack of balanced nutrition doesn’t just happen because the child is undernourished. Over-feeding is another reason why child development is affected.
Session 6Pediatric Allergy and Respiratory Disorders
It is very important to access Diagnostic evaluations and management of respiratory and allergy-related disorders in infants, children, and adolescents. The evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for conditions such as asthma, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, atopic dermatitis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, chronic cough, cystic fibrosis, drug allergies, food allergies, insect allergies and other allergy-related disorders, immune deficiency (primary or secondary), and other respiratory disorders is very essential for children overall development.
Session 7Preterm-birth Complication and Neonatal Intensive care
Nowadays, in most cases, the woman goes into labor and delivers early for no known reason. Sometimes, medical problems prompt doctors to deliver the baby earlier than planned. The features and symptoms include small size, fine hair, low body temperature, respiratory distress, and feeding difficulties. Treatment includes supportive care, medications and surgery. While some premature babies have serious medical complications or long-term health problems, many also go on to live normal healthy lives. With modern medicine and new technologies, babies are often able to survive when born earlier during the pregnancy.
Session 8Pediatric Hematology & Oncology
If a child or teen has a blood disease or cancer, a pediatric hematologist/oncologist has the experience and qualifications to evaluate and treat the child or teen. The unique nature of care of children or teens with blood diseases and cancer is learned from advanced training and experience in practice. Pediatric hematologists/oncologists treat children and teens from birth through young adulthood. Pediatric hematologists/oncologists diagnose, treat, and manage children and teens with the following:
- Cancers including leukemias, lymphomas, brain tumors, bone tumors, and solid tumors
- Diseases of blood cells including disorders of white cells, red cells, and platelets
Session 9Pediatric Cardiology,Pediatric surgery, Pediatric Critical Care and Pediatric Emergency Medicine
Pediatric cardiology is the medical specialty focused on care for patients with congenital and acquired cardiac and cardiovascular abnormalities. Pediatric cardiologists evaluate and care for fetuses, newborn infants, infants, children, and adolescents and young adults with congenital heart disease. Pediatric Emergency Medicine (PEM) is the medical subspecialty focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and management of acute illnesses and injuries affecting infants, children, and adolescents. child has an illness or injury that results in your child being in an unstable critical condition, a hospital-based pediatric critical care specialist (pediatric intensivist) can be called on to provide the special care that your child needs. Some conditions that may cause your child to be unstable and critical include the following:
- Severe asthma
- Deep diabetic ketoacidosis
- An overwhelming infection, such as severe pneumonia
- Serious injuries from accidents (such as cars, bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and rollerblades)
Session 10Pediatric mental health and Pediatric psychology
The goal of pediatric psychology is to promote the health, well-being, and development of adolescents and their families. Pediatric psychology encompasses a wide-variety of areas. These areas include: developmental, contextual, and psychosocial factors that can contribute to pediatric psychological and physical issues. It also includes: the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of pediatric medical conditions, prevention of pediatric medical conditions (physical and psychological), educating the general population on pediatric health conditions, promoting health-related behaviors, advocating for child and family public policies, and improving pediatric healthcare delivery services.
Session 11Child and Adolescent Obesity
The problem of childhood obesity in the United States has grown considerably in recent years. Approximately 12.7 million, or 17 percent, of children and adolescents are obese. Obesity is among the easiest medical conditions to recognize but most difficult to treat. Unhealthy weight gain due to poor diet and lack of exercise is responsible for over 300,000 deaths each year. Main causes are lifestyle issues like little physical activity and high calories intake from foods and drinks. Some symptoms and health risks associated with obesity are joint disease, difficulty in mobility, high blood pressure and high cholesterol level. Treatment of obesity depends on the age, medical conditions, eating habits, physical activity patterns and treatment includes medications and weight loss surgery.
