What is Pediatric Care?

Pediatric care is health care that’s centered around babies, children, and adolescents.

Regular pediatric care is different from pediatric emergency care. It involves checkups, preventive care, diagnostic testing, and the treatment of minor ailments and conditions that aren’t considered an emergency or life-threatening.

What is Emergency or Critical Pediatric Care?

Pediatric emergency care is for babies, children, and adolescents in immediate need of medical intervention, priority care, and careful monitoring by a medical professional.

The Village Emergency Centers coordinates emergency care with their skilled team of doctors and specialists. They use special treatments and techniques designed for pediatrics and are highly experienced in treating babies and newborns.

Since children are smaller and still growing, specialized pediatric care in an emergency situation is crucial.

Pediatric critical care specialists have additional training in pediatric emergencies and treating children from birth through adolescence. They typically provide an array of services for emergency situations, including:

  • Placing special catheters in blood vessels
  • Supervision of children on respirators and breathing machines
  • Diagnosis of children with an unstable, life-threatening condition
  • Thorough monitoring and observation before, during, and after treatment

Children can’t always articulate what’s concerning or hurting them, or answer a medical question. The pediatric specialists at Village Emergency Centers know how to best communicate with and understand children and their medical needs, using compassion, specialized treatment methods, and medical equipment specially designed for children.
