Treating critically ill children properly

Dear Sir or Madam,

When a child suffers from cancer, it is difficult for all parties involved – the affected children, their families, but also the attending physicians and nurses. Therefore, the right communication with critically ill children is all the more important – be it at home, in a hospice or in a Children’s Tumor Center. Read in our new Topic of the Month what it means to work in pediatric oncology.

I wish you a wunderful new Year!

Killing tumors with up to minus 180 degrees – this is possible with the cryotherapy. Needle-guided gases freeze cells so that they die. Dr. Gebhard Schmid has brought the method from France to the Johanna-Etienne hospital in Neuss. It serves as a supplement to chemotherapy and radiation therapy as well as to surgery.
