About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Internal Medicine I (Cardiology, Pulmonology and Intensive Care Medicine) at the Sana Hospital Duisburg treats patients with diseases of the heart and lungs. The patients with general internal diseases receive treatment in the interdisciplinary Intensive Care Unit. The Department is headed by Dr. med. Oliver Volk, specialist in the field of internal medicine and cardiology.  

In the field of cardiology, the Sana Hospital Duisburg mainly deals with the treatment of patients with the following diseases: heart failure, coronary heart disease, cardiac arrhythmia, myocardial infarction, vascular diseases, heart defect, hypertension and inflammation of the pericardium. The Department under the direction of Dr. med. Oliver Volk has 34 beds, including telemetry for a continuous cardiac rhythm monitoring. The noninvasive imaging methods include echocardiography, Doppler / duplex ultrasound of the veins and arteries, as well as modern tomography techniques. The invasive diagnosis and treatment are carried out in the private Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory.     

The field of pulmonology focuses not only on the treatment of acute and chronic lung diseases (such as pneumonia, asthma, COPD, sarcoidosis), but also on the diagnosis and treatment of lung tumors of any kind (e.g. bronchogenic carcinoma and pleural mesothelioma) in close collaboration with the Department of Oncology. To this end, the Department has various diagnostic and therapeutic options, including pulmonary function tests by means of a total body plethysmography, diffusion measurement, blood gas test and allergy testing.
