The report of the examination is completed and goes to the practitioner and to the parents.
Children released from ICU of the neonatology department are observed during the 1st year of life usually in four terms. The examinations focused on the health, growth and development are carried out in a clinic at the same time by pediatrician, neonatologist and physiotherapist. This ensures the objectivity of the investigation and proper involvement of therapy. The important part is the interview with the parents - involves nutrition, therapy, vaccination, etc. This examination is complemented by examination of other experts, according to the individual needs of a child.
