Paediatrics is the branch of medicine that aims to treat infants (babies), children and adolescents (young people) up to the age of 21 years. Paediatricians (medical doctor who specializes in paediatrics) determine particular health issues, diseases and disorders related to the stages of growth and development in this young group of patients.
Diagnostic tools may include blood tests, X-rays, MRI, CT scan, and electrocardiogram (ECG). The Paediatricians will also need to work with the patient’s family / guardian for better diagnosis (from their observations), towards the welfare of children.

i) General Paediatric – treats children from birth to adolescence
