About Prodia Children’s Health Centre
Children are graceful gifts for all parents. There is nothing more joyful than the moment of watching our children grow healthy and smart.
Prodia Children’s Health Centre (PCHC) is a partner for parents in terms of health services tailored for children. PCHC is equipped with facilities and services that suit the children’s needs, to support the their growth and development and improve the their health. In addition, PCHC also provides educational services for the parents to enhance their knowledge concerning the children’s health.
Why Do We Need PCHC?
Children are not adults in smaller version. They have “special” health issues which require special treatments, including in the laboratory. The smaller body size along with the developing organs and the different disease circulation at every period of age (infancy, childhood, and adolescence) entail specific assessment for the children’s laboratory test results.
Prodia understands the differences and feels the need to establish PCHC to provide facilities and services which are suitable for the special needs of the children such as:
Blood sampling focused on the child’s comfort: No pain, No worry, No miss.
The blood sampling is conducted by staffs who are specially trained to conduct a psychological approach towards the child, to use the technique and position adjusted to the child’s age, and also the distraction technique to alleviate the pain. Comfortable blood sampling environment equipped with phlebotomy chairs specially built for children.
Operationally, PCHC uses specialized equipment for children. This is conducted to provide comfort for the child and is based on the research stating that high frequency of blood sampling with adult minimum volume may cause latrogenic anemia to children.
Result Interpretation based on the Child Special Reference Value
Most of the generated test results are equipped with the child special reference value, not adult reference value. This reference value is very critical, it determines the doctor’s diagnosis

Specialized and general Laboratory Test
