The doctor usually gives the newborn a thorough physical examination within the first 24 hours of life. The examination begins with a series of measurements, including weight, length, and head circumference. The average weight at birth is 7 pounds (3.2 kilograms), and the average length is 20 inches (51 centimeters), although there is a wide range that is considered normal. Then the doctor examines the newborn’s skin, head and neck, heart and lungs, and abdomen and genitals and assesses the newborn’s nervous system and reflexes. Doctors also routinely do screening tests to detect problems they cannot see during the physical examination.
Annual School Exam/Sports Exam
Annual School Exam: An annual physical not only focuses on the physical health of your child but the developmental, emotional and social aspects of your child’s health as well. Your physician will focus on the overall health of your child by doing a complete physical examination and go over your family’s medical history to make sure preventative health measures are in place if necessary. A full assessment of your child’s cognitive and social milestones will be looked at to ensure proper development in those areas. Your physician may also use this time to discuss important topics revolving around drugs and alcohol, peer pressure, healthy relationships and puberty.
Sports Exam: It focuses on reviewing your child’s current health status and medical history to ensure that your child is healthy enough to play his or her sport. Your physician will review any preexisting injuries and assess your child’s current fitness level to determine that there is no risk for your child playing his or her sport. If your physician detects any conditions that may put your child at risk, further tests will be conducted to ensure the safety of your child on and off the field.
