Due to a recent hospital expansion, one of our partner clinics in Hamburg is equipped with some of the most high-tech emergency medical facilities available. Asklepios Klinik Harburg recently opened a new emergency ward which is equipped with up-to-date technology and the facilities to take in more patients than before.
Two high-tech shock rooms are available for the most severely injured patients. The setup of these facilities allows the patient’s family members to stay with them the entire time, which is important for the well-being of both the family and the patient.
State-of-the-art CT imaging technology creates 3D X-ray images of the inside of the body, allowing doctors to get a clear view of the inside of the body in order to come up with an accurate diagnosis. A high-tech heart catheter laboratory enables minimally-invasive treatment methods for certain heart conditions. The intensive station (ICU) is also equipped to perform serious invasive medical procedures such as tracheotomies, kidney dialysis, pleura and pericardium punctures, and implanting temporary pacemakers. Highly-trained urological and gynecological surgeons specialize in treating tumors and other conditions of the reproductive organs. And the specialized Respiratory Center not only provides patients lifesaving artificial respiration, but focuses largely on weaning patients off of it again so they can breathe independently.
In addition, if the injury has caused significant disfigurement, we can refer the patient to a German specialist in plastic and reconstructive surgery to restore aesthetic appearance.
Due to the close cooperation between the different specialty departments, even patients with multiple serious conditions can rest assured they will be well-cared for.
