Professor Hermann Josef Girschick: Sending in the clowns in Friedrichshain – paediatric care of the highest standard

Headed by Professor Girschick, the Vivantes Children's Hospital in Friedrichshain provides an extensive range of medical services, ranging from care for premature babies born at 25 weeks and vaccinations to treatment for irritable hip and butterfly rash.

The hospital runs a perinatal centre offering the highest level of obstetrics care at a neonatal intensive care unit, a social paediatrics centre for children from across Germany, general paediatric treatment for inpatients and outpatients and many other specialist paediatric units, such as paediatric rheumatology, a centre for haemophilia and a sleep laboratory for children.

Wide range of treatment for young patients in central Berlin

The hospital looks after sick children of all ages, from new-born babies to young adults. “Our areas of focus are paediatric nephrology and urology, paediatric gastroenterology, diseases affecting the immune system in general, including a weakened immune system, rheumatic diseases and haematological diseases,” explains Senior Consultant Professor Hermann Girschick.

The perinatal centre at the Children's Hospital offers all types of birthing options as well as the appropriate types of anaesthetic. Diffcult births and the resulting problems for newborn babies are addressed using the latest therapies (e.g. therapeutic hypothermia, various advisory strategies). Neonatal intensive care is provided by a diligent interdisciplinary team of highly experienced doctors and nurses.

A stay in hospital can be very upsetting for small children – and for their parents – who are not used to being away from home for a long period. That is why treating patients in the day clinic, social paediatrics centre and outpatient clinic are particularly important and why follow-up care is provided on an outpatient basis.

If children require a longer hospital stay due to an operation, they can benefit from a ‘clown appointment`. A hospital clown comes to visit young patients to distract them from any pain or homesickness they may be feeling.

Popular hospital for international patients

The hospital's central location in Berlin also attracts patients from outside Germany explains Professor Girschick: “Many of our young patients are from immigrant families who predominantly originate from the Mediterranean, Middle East and countries of the former Soviet Union.”

Support from and collaboration with Vivantes International Medicine enables the hospital to advise, diagnose and offer specialist therapy to international patients with severe chronic illnesses – including by deploying interpreters.

Cutting-edge diagnostics and therapy concepts for children

The Children's Hospital employs the latest diagnostic techniques such as ultrasound technology for the heart, abdomen and urinary system, as well as other diagnostic technologies, e.g. endoscopy for the gastrointestinal tract and airways. ECGs, EEGs, lung function tests, gastrointestinal provocation tests and helicobacter examinations are also available to test the body's functions. The hospital cooperates with the institute for diagnostic and interventional radiology to offer all state-of-the-art imaging examinations for children, including PET-CT scans. Specialist support from paediatric anaesthetists is often provided, especially for younger patients. Close professional collaboration with colleagues specialising in neurosurgery, ENT, musculoskeletal surgery, urology, abdominal surgery and paediatric surgery enables children to benefit from the latest surgical therapies after their diagnosis. At the Vivantes Hospital in Friedrichshain there is a strong focus on working as one interdisciplinary team, with colleagues able to contact each other quickly and directly.

The Children's Hospital, with Senior Consultant Professor Girschick at its helm, also offers numerous specialist consultations, such as for haemophilia, paediatric urology, paediatric gastroenterology, rheumatology, immunology and paediatric nephrology plus a sleep laboratory catering specifi cally for children and young adults.

Kunsthofpassage

1000 e 1 passagem

Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafés

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.

Asisi Panometer

Dresden : 1945

Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 ​​graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer. http://www.asisi.de/en/panoramas/dresden-1945/photo-gallery.html

Frauenkirche - Church of Our Lady

A Lady de Dresden

A Igreja da Nossa Senhora de Dresden é um espetáculo de linda. É a igreja que vai te impactar no primeiro minuto que você entrar e ver uma igreja branca, super luminada. Se há um lugar cuja história pode mover-lo às lágrimas, será n'a Igreja de Nossa Senhora. Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, a igreja foi bombardeada e ficou em escombros até 1994, quando um programa de restauração foi iniciado. Hoje, é um lembrete dos dias antes da guerra e um dos lugares que você vai ter uma história imparcial sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Christmas Markets in Cologne

Christmas in Germany

Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.

Canadians First Time at a Traditional Co-ed Spa

Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.

Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto

Niki the St.-Phalle at her best

A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.
