Hospital Kloster Grafschaft Schmallenberg - Departments
Department of Cardiology
The Department of Cardiology offers all the options of modern medicine for the diagnostics and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The department's doctors have at their disposal a wide arsenal of diagnostic tests for the comprehensive assessment of the heart function, thanks to which they develop effective treatment regimens. In addition to classical tests, the department's cardiologists also perform left and right heart catheterization. The specialists most often admit patients with coronary heart disease, heart failure, myocardial infarction, heart rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias), valvular dysfunction and other pathologies. Depending on the severity of the disease and general health condition, patients can undergo treatment both on an inpatient or outpatient basis. The cardiologists working in the department follow current clinical protocols and recommendations of the German Cardiac Society, so patients can be confident in the reliability and effectiveness of all therapeutic procedures.
Department of Pulmonology
The Department of Pulmonology offers all the options of modern medicine in the diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the lungs, bronchi and pleural cavities. The priority focuses of the department's doctors are the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchial asthma and pulmonary emphysema. Another important focus of the medical facility is on the diagnostics and treatment of chronic cough. The treatment of lung tumors is also within the competence of the department. It is provided in cooperation with the Lung Cancer Center Hemer – one of the best specialized centers in Germany certified by the German Cancer Society. The department is proud of its excellent diagnostic equipment: X-ray devices, computed tomography, equipment for bronchoscopy, spirometry, whole body plethysmography, etc. Thus, pulmonologists have all the necessary resources to make an accurate diagnosis, which determines the success of further therapeutic measures. The department's medical team annually admits more than 4,000 patients, which testifies to the high level of medical care and the reputability of the department in the area of its specialization.
Department of Allergology
The Department of Allergology provides the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic services in the area of its specialization. A highly qualified team of the department's doctors, which is rightfully proud of its rich clinical experience and excellent treatment success rates, provides effective treatment of allergic diseases. The patients can receive medical care both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The complex of diagnostic tests and follow-up therapeutic procedures are selected for each patient individually. In most cases, the patients visit the department with the onset of symptoms, so symptomatic therapy is often the first-line treatment. Many patients then undergo allergen-specific immunotherapy (hyposensitization). With an annual number of more than 3,500 patients with allergic diseases of varying severity, the department enjoys a reputation as one of the largest highly specialized medical facilities of this kind at the national level.
Department of Intensive Care and Weaning
Kloster Grafschaft hospital has an intensive care department with 14 beds. All internal emergency diseases (heart attack, stroke, lung embolism, gastro-intestinal bleeding, etc.) can be treated here according to the latest medical knowledge. A special focus of the hospital is the supervision and so-called weaning of patients after long-term respiration.
Department of Pulmonary Rehabilitation
The Department of Pulmonary Rehabilitation offers the full range of rehabilitation measures for the patients who have suffered severe respiratory diseases, as well as for the patients after long-term mechanical ventilation. The department's specialists always recommend undergoing rehabilitation treatment immediately after the basic therapy course, which allows achieving the best results and providing the patient with a decent quality of life. The doctors of the medical facility prefer an individual approach to each patient, and therefore a pulmonary rehabilitation program is developed individually, taking into account the particular diagnosis, the overall health status of the patient, his age and other important factors. The health of the patient is in the safe hands of a highly professional interdisciplinary team, which includes therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nutritionists, specially trained nursing staff and other specialists. Whenever required, psychologists, psychotherapists, neurologists and surgeons can also be involved in the treatment process.
Department of Sleep Medicine and Home Ventilation
Since 1987, the department has operated a sleep laboratory with currently more than 19 measurement places. The patients are supervised by the clinic’s employees day and night. The focus of interest is especially placed on diseases which disturb the sleep in many different ways.
