About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation at the MEDIAN Rehabilitation Clinic Flechtingen specializes in restoring patients with lung and heart disease, especially those who have suffered a heart attack. To mobilize and stabilize the patient, the department offers intensive physiotherapy, various sports exercises, ergometry and many others. In the national ranking, the department took first place among 103 clinics surpassing them in the successful treatment outcomes and patients’ satisfaction. The department is headed by Dr. med. Per Otto Schüller. 

The department intensively introduces and applies innovative therapeutic procedures, which ensures both effective and long-term recovery of patients. In the course of rehabilitation, a person gradually recovers and relearns to trust their heart again. In the future, patients should continuously do physical exercises at home, which is an integral prerequisite for the treatment of almost all heart diseases.

In cardiovascular diseases, it is very important to learn how to cope with this ailment and thus to eliminate the risk factors for developing a new disease or worsening the condition. Therefore, nutrition recommendations, relaxation programs and smoking cessation programs are also part of the therapy. In addition, the department offers patient training programs, for example, on how the patient can measure blood pressure and determine INR on their own. Another important aspect of cardiac rehabilitation is individual and group psychological therapy aimed at eliminating anxiety, depression and other mental factors associated with the disease.

Cardiac rehabilitation is based on the following:

  • High physical activity
  • Healthy nutrition
  • Reduced number of stressful situations
  • Refusal of smoking
  • Medical therapy
  • Psychological support

It goes without saying that the key to successful treatment results is quality and accurate diagnosis. The Department of Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation is equipped with the state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, such as 3D technologies for imaging both heart structure (myocardium, valves, vessels) and lungs, devices for 3D ultrasound examinations, the cutting-edge spiroergometry system for precise diagnosis of heart function, circulatory system, respiration and muscle metabolism at rest and during exercising. In addition, the department uses bracelets to record, monitor and evaluate the patient's lifestyle, which provide data on important physiological parameters.

Since cardiovascular diseases are often associated with impaired lung functioning, pulmonology is a separate area of specialization in the department. Particular attention is paid to the recovery of patients with COPD and respiratory disorders. There is offered CPAP therapy and treatment of patients who constantly need oxygen supply. To service elderly patients with complications and multiple diseases, the department has specialized ongoing monitoring units, which contributes to more effective and quality therapy.

  • Physiotherapy (Terraintraining, treadmill classes, walking, cardiovascular gymnastics of various intensity, weight training to restore muscle tone, etc.)
