Owing to the close collaboration of various disciplines, patients with pulmonary diseases receive comprehensive treatment at the Pneumology Center of Competence of Klinikum Landkreis Erding. In the case of pulmonary diseases, especially tumour and interstitial pulmonary diseases, prompt diagnosis and the initiation of a specific treatment is of particular importance. Patients suffering from other common diseases, such as severe forms of bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive bronchitis with emphysema, receive comprehensive medical treatment, if necessary, including long-term oxygen therapy and home ventilation.
Concept of the Pneumology Center of Competence
Klinikum Landkreis Erding is a hospital with a streamlined organisational structure. As part of the Department of Internal Medicine, the Pneumology Department works hand-in-hand with the subject-related Intensive Care Unit as well as other departments, in particular the Department of Thoracic Surgery, on an interdisciplinary basis.
Following prompt diagnosis on admission, the patient either receives further treatment at the same department or is transferred to the surgical department. At the same time, physical therapy is available in each phase of treatment. If necessary, the patient can be transferred to the Intensive Care Unit at any time. As a result of this, patients can be provided uniform treatment without loss of information even when they are transferred through different departments.
