A scientific and practical conference on pediatrics was held in Moscow, which was attended by doctors from different regions of Russia. They also discussed the problem of childhood obesity and how to treat latent infections and growth problems. "If a child suddenly began to lag behind his peers, this should raise suspicion," warned Maria Vorontsova, deputy chairman of the Russian Society of Young Endocrinologists.
From breastfeeding (breastfeeding and artificial feeding), drug interactions to special issues in pediatric surgery, the topics are very different. Specialists from Moscow and the central regions of Russia were invited to participate in the scientific and practical conference on pediatrics. But thanks to technology, pediatricians from various cities and even countries, from Europe to the Far East, were able to follow the discussion and even take part in it.
The broadcast went through the Internet, thousands of viewers. Everything to make it convenient for professionals to exchange information.
"The most important thing is to unite all pediatricians, all pediatric specialists, to choose a single approach, given that many diseases in children proceed under different masks, and many diseases in children require a multidisciplinary approach," says Ismail Osmanov, chief pediatrician of Moscow, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Honored Doctor of the Russian Federation.
More recently, it seems, there was a real boom in births through a cesarean section. But now doctors are increasingly able to convince mothers that it is more correct to give birth naturally.
"We are against the CS when it is done because the mother is afraid, or the father has the opportunity to pay for this delivery, and the mother does not fully understand all the dangers that threaten as a result of the CS," explains Irina Zakharova, MD, Honored Doctor of the Russian Federation.
But what if suddenly the child began to grow slower? A question for endocrinologists.
"If a child suddenly began to lag behind his peers, or if he always lagged behind his peers by a head and more, this should raise suspicion. It is advisable to see a doctor," says Maria Vorontsova, children's endocrinologist, deputy chairman of the Russian Society of Young Endocrinologists.
And so, year after year - from birth to wedding - pediatricians, within the framework of one conference, work through all stages of life. For example, obesity. It is increasingly being diagnosed in adolescents. Previously, one in 25, now every seventh is overweight. What to do?
"Lifestyle modification. This is such a complex term, but in a simple way it is diet and exercise. Competently and according to age. Taking into account the needs of the child, taking into account his physical activity," explains Maria Simakova, children's endocrinologist.
Neonatologists, pediatric cardiologists and pulmonologists shared their latest discoveries and achievements in order to save lives.
