Examen en niños pequeños

Toggle: English / Spanish

La preparación adecuada antes de un examen o procedimiento puede reducir el temor y la ansiedad de un niño pequeño. Preparar a un niño para un examen puede incluir pasar por todos los pasos del procedimiento, explicando acerca de las partes del cuerpo que estarán involucradas o describiendo lo que se puede sentir durante el examen. Independientemente del tipo de examen o procedimiento a realizarse, lo más probable es que el niño llore. La forma más eficaz de reconfortar al niño es la presencia de sus padres.
