for 1.5 million euros is aimed the house a new treatment center for cardiac patients. That should solve the existing capacity problems -. And patients with cardiac arrhythmia no longer need to go to Freiburg or Bad Krozingen
has Singen Hospital in new technology for the treatment of heart patients invested. The house has set up a second left catheter measuring station.

Now we offer for the local people here cutting-edge medicine to, “said District Administrator Frank Hämmerle would be.
And because you need for this high-performance device for a specialist, one has with Stefan Asbach (41) is equal to a set. “The health network is a very attractive employer”, Asbach, who has already discovered his penchant for Rhythmology while studying and it is specially designed said. “In the studies we can provoke arrhythmia to find the cause and points equal to obliterate accordance with the patient,” said Asbach.
, this device while the patient is anesthetized locally, fine electrode catheter out of the bar above the vein to the heart. The electrophysiological study then shows where the origin of the arrhythmia is located. In warm yellows of the room is maintained with the new cardiac catheter measuring station because the patient should feel comfortable in the investigation.

Commissioning is scheduled for Peter Fischer of the Hospital’s management is also a success of the hospital group, because without these was this major investment have been impossible.
