Ward 22 specializes in treating heart patients. In the heart monitoring room, central vital functions, such as heart rhythm, blood pressure, the body's oxygen uptake, and secretory functions, can be effectively monitored and managed. The Internal Medicine Ward conducts electrical rhythm transfers, for which patients use prebooked appointments. In addition to actual treatment procedures, the ward also provides diagnostics, more in-depth examinations, rehabilitation, support for self-care, and pain management and counselling as necessary, based on each patient's individual needs.
