Scheduled examination by a pediatrician enables to assess the state of the mucous membranes of the larynx, nose, check the respiratory and hearing organs, and also obtain the material for clinical studies.
What examinations can a pediatric otolaryngologist prescribe?
For an accurate diagnosis, the following diagnostic procedures are commonly used:
- endoscopy of ENT organs;
- X-ray of the nose;
- ultrasound of the paranasal sinuses;
- ultrasound of the vessels of the head (for hearing impairment);
- tympanometry (to assess the patency of the auditory canal), etc.
Also, if necessary, laboratory tests are carried out to analyze the microflora of the mucous membranes of the ENT organs, as well as allergy tests, and indicators of the immune status are determined.
Our children’s doctors have at their disposal local anesthesia preparations for the most comfortable research, and interaction with related specialists (pediatrician, neurologist) ensures the effectiveness of the treatment.
