Resumo: Screening and prevention are important components of general pediatric health care. Infants and young children should be screened for iron deficiency anemia, lead poisoning, and developmental disorders as essential parts of the well-child visit. Developmental and behavioral screening early in childhood is necessary to identify developmental delays and facilitate timely treatment. Lead screening is recommended for at-risk pediatric patients to treat children with elevated lead levels. Infants and children are also at risk for iron deficiency anemia and must be screened appropriately. Familiarization with pediatric screening guidelines is critical for primary care providers caring for children.
