The top reason for children's doctor visits


Paediatric chest diseases encompass a significant portion of the most common diseases in children. Not only in our country but all over the world, the most common reasons for children to consult a doctor and to be hospitalized are respiratory system diseases, or lung diseases. As with many physiological characteristics of children, their respiratory systems are different from adults, so the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of diseases are carried out by physicians specialized in the field of paediatric chest diseases. A separate Paediatric Chest Diseases branch was created in the USA in 1957 for these problems in children, which were previously dealt with by Chest Diseases specialists for adults, and this practice was adopted all over the world over time.


Early treatment saves lives.


Prolonged coughs, wheezing, and shortness of breath are the main respiratory problems that fall under the branch of paediatric chest diseases. Considering these complaints in children, whose respiratory systems are more sensitive than adults' and easily affected by environmental factors, a consultation with a paediatric chest disease specialist will help prevent much more serious damage may occur in the future. It is very important that the child's complaints are taken seriously, and that the treatment is planned correctly in order to prevent the recurrence of chronic diseases such as asthma, pneumonia, and shortness of breath. Delayed diagnosis of these diseases can result in inaccurate treatment planning, exposing the child to lengthy and difficult treatment processes that may necessitate hospitalization.
