There is one of the lowest rates of infant mortality in the Czech Republic (1.5 pro mille) within Europe and worldwide. With a view to the fact that the body of infants, new born babies and children are physiologically quite different from adults, the treatment is of course different as well.
Childhood is the time period of the most remarkable growth, development and maturation of human body organs. Long-term experience of the medical doctor is important for correct recognition of standard differences from pathological ones. Have your child treated by the best Czech specialists who provide the best care.
Paediatrics also includes ante-natal care, which deals with timely diagnosis of foetal disturbances with blood sampling and sonography – so called integrated screening. In indicated cases, it may be necessary to perform amniocentesis. With the help of this examination, it is possible to acquire detailed information on fatal development. This examination is carried out in outpatient and ward departments of gynaecological - obstetric facilities. Child birth takes place at maternity hospitals, subsequent care then at neonatal centres. Then the general peadiatrist provides care to the new born baby.
Prior to the release of the new born baby from the maternity hospital, screening (identification of an unrecognised disease in individuals without signs or symptoms) for some diseases is carried out as well. Its goal is timely diagnosis of serious diseases, such as phenylketonuria, cystic fibrosis and other.
