Beside the focus on lung diseases we particulary care for internal diseases in the fields of gastroenterology, cardiology, oncology, nephrology and endocrinology. This extensive diagnosis is only possible to our excellent technical and personal equipment, in particular to our large intensive care wards (14 beds). The department of lung medicine (pneumology) supervises more than 4000 patients each year. The focuses of treatment are placed upon the clinical pictures like chronic obstructive bronchitis, lung emphysema, bronchial asthma, lung cancer, lung fibrosis, chronic persistent cough and others.
A special focus of the hospital is the supervision and so-called weaning of patients after long-term ventilation. During the weaning from the ventilator, the patient should be placed in the position to breathe on his own again. Approx. 200 patients who underwent mechanical long-term ventilation are supervised every year, and in two-Thirds of these cases we succeed in weaning the patients and thus enable to return to a home environment.
After the intensive-care acute treatment the patients will continue to be cared for the department of early rehabilitation after long-term ventilation. From the start, our team, which covers several specialist doctors, special nurses, especially trained physio-, logo-, ergo and wound therapists as well as a specialist in nursing transition. Relatives are integrated in the rehabilitation process and can also be accommodated in the patients room.
We include one of the largest and most-experienced sleep laboratories in Germany. We focus on obstructive or central sleep apnoea, restless leg syndrome, periodic breathing, Cheyne-Stokes-breathing, chronic respiratory and ventilatory insufficiency and obesity-associated hypoventilation syndrome.
