Pediatric physicians are emergency care providers that specialize in diagnosing
and treating children requiring immediate care. These physicians are trained
to recognize the symptoms of serious illnesses and injuries in children
and provide prompt, caring treatment to stabilize your child in a serious
medical situation. If you believe that your child needs
emergency care, visit your Margate ER for professional medical help.
Emergency Care Evaluations
When you visit the ER with your child, the first step in receiving care
is an evaluation of your child’s health and symptoms. Pediatric
ER physicians have extensive experience in identifying the signs of injuries,
illnesses, allergies, and other health concerns in children, even when
children may be frightened, unruly, or simply too young to respond to
questions. Furthermore, pediatric ER physicians understand conditions
that most frequently or may only affect children, allowing them to make
a faster and more accurate diagnosis, even if you aren’t sure of
the cause of your child’s symptoms.
Emergency Care Treatment
Emergency pediatric physicians have a unique understanding of and experience
with treating children in serious situations.
Medical emergencies are often painful and frightening, even for adults. Children may act out,
cry, hide, or display other behaviors that can make treatment more difficult.
A pediatric ER physician may approach providing treatment for your child
differently than treating an adult to ensure your child is both healthy
and comfortable. Some of the most common ER treatments provided to children
include care for broken bones, serious cuts, dehydration, burns, animal
bites, poisonings, overdoses, and complications associated with chronic
illnesses, such as diabetes or asthma.
