When you get sick or injured, you might grit your teeth and drag yourself into work without so much as a thought of contacting a medical professional. When your child gets sick or injured, however, the world stops spinning and nothing else matters until you get your child the medical care that they need. Although you should contact your physician whenever you yourself have a health problem, it’s understandable to want to place your child’s health and well being at a higher priority than your own.
But rather than work yourself into a fever and race your child off to the nearest emergency room, relax, take a deep breath, and consult our Childhood Illness Knowledge Base.
Of course, if your child is in a life-threatening situation that requires immediate medical attention, you should call 911 and get them to the emergency room as quickly as possible. However, there are many situations in which urgent care is a more practical and economic option than an expensive visit to the ER.
The Childhood Illness Knowledge Base provides parents with valuable information regarding common childhood illnesses. Parents can use the resource to learn the symptoms of illnesses, as well as the steps that they should take in order to handle or treat the health problem. The knowledge base covers everything from teething and bedwetting to animal bites and dehydration.
So instead of panicking and darting through rush hour traffic to get your kid to the hospital, check the Childhood Illness Knowledge Base. You will find all the information you need to provide the right care for your child. Many common childhood ailments can be remedied at home, but when you need immediate, non-emergency medical care for children, visit Northwest Arkansas Pediatric’s Acute Care Walk-In Clinic 8 am to 7pm weekdays and 9 am to 11 am Saturdays.
