Department of cardiology
The department of cardiology at Regio Hospital Elmshorn offers a full spectrum in diagnosing and treating patients with cardiovascular diseases. In the two modern heart catheter laboratories, a medical team has the opportunity to carry out planned heart catheter examinations in patients with stable angina pectoris and, in an emergency, to treat patients with an acute heart attack. Of course, specialists and nurses are available for you in emergencies, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With modern, extended examination methods such as intravascular ultrasound or pressure wire measurement, doctors always offer you the best therapy, individually tailored to your needs. Treatment is possible, both outpatient and inpatient. The qualified nursing staff creates a pleasant and friendly environment for a comfortable stay in the hospital.
Department cardiologists have extensive experience in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. Using what is known as electrical cardioversion, experienced doctors quickly bring the patient's heart back into the correct rhythm. For longer-term rhythm stabilisation, specialists also use drug or interventional therapy. In addition, the department offers pacemaker implantation in the area of cardiac arrhythmia, as well as changing the unit for pacemakers that are already in place and the battery is exhausted.
