In this we may or may not be the only doctors your child will need, but we will most likely be the first to see him or her. Because of immaturity of the infant immune system, many infections progress more rapidly, and with fewer identifiable signs or symptoms, than in adults; on the other hand, they may run very high fevers with relatively mild illnesses. In children, asthma can be indistinguishable from an acute infection, foreign bodies may go unnoticed for months or years and be undetectable by Xray, and allergic and infectious rashes can look very much alike. It is our emphasis on timely diagnosis that necessitates reliance on high technology. The CBC machine, giving us the white count and three-part differential in under a minute, allows us a glimpse into the immune system's own evaluation of the ongoing disease process; the red cell count and indeces allow for early diagnosis of iron and vitamin deficiencies, not to mention information needed for school and WIC forms; rapid strep test allows immediate treatment of a common infection known for common complications; pulse oximetry, ECG, spirometry are available to assess heart and lung function, and tympanometry and OAE analyzer allow for better assessment of the child with suspected, or past, ear infection than is possible by visual examination alone.
