General Internal Medicine

General Internal Medicine provides treatments for all internal and neurological clinical pictures, which cannot be classified under the subareas of gastroenterology, cardiology and geriatrics.

Stroke Unit
The stroke unit at the Clinic for Internal Medicine is equipped with four monitored beds. The unit specialises in the treatment of patients with acute strokes and acute, transient circulatory disorders of the brain (transient ischemic attacks, TIA). At the Diakonissen-Stiftungs-Krankenhaus state of the art teleneurology enables neurological treatment of acute strokes for 24 hours a day.

Pneumology is concerned with acute and chronic diseases of the respiratory tract (bronchi), the lungs, the pleura and the chest. Pneumology also includes the examination and treatment of respiratory and sleep disturbances (snoring; sleep apnoea syndrome). Clarification is provided in particular for discomforts such as coughing and breathlessness and treatment is provided for diseases such as bronchial asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, pulmonary fibrosis as well as tumours of the lungs (e.g. bronchial carcinoma) and the pleura.

Sleep Laboratory
Sleep medicine (somnology) at the Diakonissen-Stiftungs-Krankenhaus Speyer is primarily concerned with organic sleep disturbances. These include changes in breathing patterns and the regulation of breathing, as well as diseases which lead to a disturbance in oxygen uptake during sleep. There are four inpatient and four outpatient measuring stations available at the sleep laboratory in the Diakonissen-Stiftungs-Krankenhaus in order to determine the cause of sleep disturbances. Appointments via Tel.: +49 (0)6232 18-111

Intensive Care
Our interdisciplinary intensive care unit has 16 beds and is managed by the head physicians of the specialist departments for surgery, internal medicine, gynaecology and the Institute for Perioperative Medicine. It includes 8 breathing machines, advanced monitoring and options for the application of intra-aortic balloon pumps. In our intensive care unit we treat patients who have suffered from a partial or complete failure of vital organs. Causes of intensive care or monitoring may be intoxication, infections, injuries resulting from accidents, states of shock and surgical procedures.
