The Definition of Pediatrics

Notice that their definition of pediatrics includes both the physical and mental wellbeing of the child.
Special Legislation for Pediatric Devices and Product Safety
An overwhelming majority of products used today on pediatric patients were designed and developed for adults and then later modified for use on children. These inventions may lack the resilience required to withstand the more active routines of children and may fail as a result of material weakness. Furthermore, materials used in a product developed for adults might not be compatible with tissue in a child"s body. Children have distinctive physical needs when compared to adults. A child"s body is always growing and developing. This fact establishes the need for Government medical and surgical device safety legislation for pediatric patients. You can read more on the Fact Sheet: Pediatric provisions in the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act.
Infant Safety, Fears of New Parents First time parents are often obsessed with the thought of doing something wrong and accidentally injuring their new born child. When looking for advice from family, friends and pediatric literature a new parent will find a wide range of answers. Sometimes these answers will be contradictory. So is it any wonder with so many resources available to parents that they find the whole subject of pediatric care can be a little overwhelming?
New parents can take note of some of the most common risks to a newborns health. The top causes of pediatric emergencies are car injuries, falls, burns, drowning, poisoning and choking.
When do child injuries usually occur? Injuries frequently happen when children are not being watched. That"s why the American Academy of Pediatrics advocates that children need to be supervised at all the times, specifically children under the age of 3. Another time children tend to injure themselves is when the child is fatigued. Just like adults, children are not as aware of their surroundings when they are tired or hungry. According to pediatric professionals children are more likely to harm themselves before eating or before bed.
