Department of Pneumology (113755)
Specialized in: pneumology
The Department of Pulmonology at the Asklepios Bad Wildungen Municipal Clinic, headed by Dr. med. Aggi Neumann-Schiebener, deals with the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases, as well as bronchial asthma (chronic, inflammatory respiratory diseases), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD: long-term lung disease with a severe airway constriction), pneumonia, tumors of the lungs and pleura, as well as respiratory disorders / failure.
The Department under the direction of Dr. med. Aggi Neumann-Schiebener offers all modern diagnostic techniques, such as bronchoscopy, a comprehensive pulmonary function testing, as well as ultrasound of the heart and pleura. The critically ill patients are treated in the Intensive Care Unit at the Asklepios Bad Wildungen Municipal Clinic, which uses all diagnostic and treatment methods of intensive care medicine. The specialists of the department have a unique competence and experience in the field of invasive (by means of tracheotomy) and noninvasive (by means of special masks) mechanical ventilation.
In the Bronchoscopy Unit, which is equipped with the state-of-the-art equipment, the medical team under the direction of Dr. med. Aggi Neumann-Schiebener carries out endoscopic examinations of the respiratory tract and chest cavity. The range of diagnostic services also includes endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS). In this case there is also used endoscopic ultrasound of the lymph nodes close to bronchi. There is used a special probe that ensures a direct puncture and tissue confirmation. This method significantly improves the diagnosis of lung cancer.
Another priority of the Asklepios Bad Wildungen Municipal Clinic is the Weaning Center. The goal of the experienced team of experts is a complete weaning of patients from mechanical ventilation (those who have been maintained in a state of artificial ventilation for a long time).
