A Pediatrician is a Child Specialist who has been certified by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP)to own the official license of a Pediatrician. This license can be obtained by medical practitioners only after they appear for an examination held by the ABP.
Under the criteria issued by ABP, a medical practitioner should also acquire a three-year training of Pediatric Residency to become an official Pediatrician. Also known as a Child Specialist, a Pediatrician is a doctor who has an extensive knowledge regarding children & medical issues exclusive to their age.
When you are searching for a Pediatrician for your child, it is always advisable to find one who has a sub-specialty in Neonatology. This ensures that your Pediatrician can offer you full assistance with meticulous medical procedures that are required to be administered on a pre-term baby or a normal term baby who develops sickness in the early months of his/her life. Consulting a highly skilled professional for a pre-term baby is highly advisable. But if your baby is healthy & is born at a normal term, don’t go easy on the qualifications or the experience. A mere license issued is not enough. We recommend consulting a Pediatrician who comes by an experience of more than a decade, just to be on the safe side. You want to leave your baby on expert hands in case of just-in-case emergencies. And it is when field experience of a Pediatrician matters the most.
It is fairly difficult to find a Pediatrician who comes with a healthy experience background & is well versed in performing elaborate medical procedures like Neonatal Resuscitation, Application of Mechanical Ventilation, handling CPAP Machines & administering Surfactant in times of potential emergency.
