We offer you comprehensive clarification and treatment for respiratory distress. You will be looked after by our competent team of doctors, therapists and nurses.
Recognize and treat
First of all, we will examine you thoroughly to find the cause of your shortness of breath and rule out other illnesses. For this we use modern examination methods such as
- Analysis of lung function (body plethysmography)
- Analysis of lung function under physical stress (spiroergometry)
- X-ray examinations
- Computer tomography
If you have a disease of the lungs, respiratory tract or cardiovascular system, we will discuss in detail with you what kind of therapy is necessary. The primary goal of treatment is to avoid or reduce your shortness of breath. Ultrasound examination of the heart (echocardiography).
Concomitantly long-term oxygen therapy can be used, which is coordinated by our respiratory- and physiotherapists. For many lung diseases, exercise is an important part of the therapy. If there are no exclusion criteria, we recommend that you take part in a medically supervised lung sports group.
