We have been to the hospital 3 times because of our daughter.The first time was the birth, labor started early which ultimately led to a premature birth (6 weeks too early). My wife was treated very well on the ward, but the food was really bad ... I eat pretty much everything and I am not very squeamish, but the food was really below average.Since our little one was premature and had difficulties starting, she had to be ventilated intensively and with oxygen in the incubator.The sisters were all nice and competent, the approach to our child was great (changing diapers, wearing the right ones, etc.)Really recommend it.At about 1.5 years our little one had suspected Chassaignac paralysis ... Truly no acute emergency (but in need of treatment) and something seems to forget many patients ... You are not always a life-threatening emergency !!Waiting time a good 4 hours, treatment was good.With about 2.3 years new suspicion of a Chassaignac paralysis, same as before. Arm in position and you shouldn't touch the arm. Waiting time about 30 minutes, again good and fast treatment and again about 20 minutes waiting for a doctor called.A recommended clinic.And if others understood what an emergency room is and what you go with, almost all 1 star ratings would be dropped

    What you need to know about Pleurodesis in Hildesheim

    Pleurodesis Procedure

    Pleurodesis is a procedure to adhere the lung to the chest wall. The procedure closes up the space between the outer lining of the lung and the chest wall to prevent air and fluid from building up around the lungs. It is performed on people who are experiencing pleural effusion (a buildup of fluid around the lungs) or have had a pneumothorax (a recurring collapsed lung).

    What does a Pleurodesis Procedure Involve?

    During pleurodesis, your doctor will give you anesthetic to numb the affected area and sedation to help you relax. There are two different ways to do the procedure, surgical and chemical. With surgical pleurodesis, your doctor makes an incision in your chest wall and inserts a plastic tube into the chest cavity. Then, an irritating chemical is sprayed around your lungs. The lining of the lung (pleura) will adhere tightly to the chest wall and prevent fluid from collecting around your lung. The incision will be closed with stitches. With chemical pleurodesis, your doctor injects medication into your chest.

    How Long Should I Stay in Hildesheim for a Pleurodesis Procedure?

    The length of your hospital stay may vary from two days to ten days, depending on what condition caused you to undergo pleurodesis. Plan to stay in the Hildesheim for at least 14 days for the initial recovery and for follow-up check-ups.

    What's the Recovery Time for Pleurodesis Procedures in Hildesheim?

    The recovery period depends on your condition and which method you underwent. In general, you will have to rest for 1-2 weeks and you should be able to get back to work within 4 weeks following the procedure. 

    What sort of Aftercare is Required for Pleurodesis Procedures in Hildesheim?

    Your doctor will give you follow-up instructions regarding dietary restrictions, exercises, and wound care. You should avoid baths, hot tubs, and pools until your incision has completely healed. You should also avoid holding or straining your breath.

    What's the Success Rate of Pleurodesis Procedures in Hildesheim?

    The success rate of pleurodesis in people with pleural effusion not caused by cancer is around 75% to 80%. The side effects and risks you need to be aware of include fever, shortness of breath, pain, a collection of pus in the pleural space, and infection.

    Are there Alternatives to Pleurodesis Procedures in Hildesheim?

    The alternative to pleurodesis is pleural catheter placement, which allows you to have a smaller tube than a chest tube. Discuss with your doctor the pros and cons of a catheter as well as pleurodesis for your condition.

    What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

    If you have pneumothorax or pleural effusion, your lung function will be greatly improved after pleurodesis.
