Role of Healthcare Providers in our Lives!

Role of Healthcare Providers in our Lives!

Healthcare providers are a part of our lives from the day we are born till we breathe our last. And, we hardly do anything to acknowledge their presence or express gratitude to them. We have grown accustomed to having them around and we take them for granted.

Let us take a look at the different specialist doctors who play a vital role in the journey of our lives.

Gynecologists bring us to this world by helping mothers deliver babies safely. They take care of the health and well-being of both the mother and the child.

Once the baby is born, he is put in the care of a pediatrician. Pediatricians take care of all aspects of the health of the baby including his vaccination schedules, treating him for illnesses and injuries through his growth years.

When the child reaches adulthood, 18 years of age, he then moves into the care of a physician. Most families have a specific physician who takes care of the health of all the members of the family. He directs the family members to specialists if required.

As we grow in years, we become vulnerable to different health issues. There are different specialists to take care of each type of health issue. Some doctors specialize in treating issues with different organs. Hence we have heart specialists for cardiac issues, kidney specialists, orthopedic doctors, and more. Then, some disease-specific doctors or doctors specialize in treating patients suffering from specific diseases. For instance, cancer specialists, doctors for diabetes, and more.

The doctors who we require at all ages are dentists who take care of our oral health.

Ophthalmologists help us maintain our vision.

For a healthy life, different parameters like blood pressure, blood sugar, electrolytes, need to be maintained correctly. These parameters vary with age. It is doctors who help monitor these parameters and keep them in control.

Modern lifestyle habits have also led to mental health issues in addition to physical health problems. So, we have psychiatrists who specialize in mental health issues.

So, we see that doctors are there with us at each stage of our lives helping us cope with any health issues we may face.

But when we speak of healthcare providers, it is not just doctors. It also includes the entire support staff, paramedics, hospital cleaning staff, pathologists, etc.

All these healthcare professionals take care of our health, sometimes exposing themselves to health risks. We have seen how all healthcare professionals across the globe stood strong during the current pandemic.
