In the context of the haematological outpatient clinic, diseases of the haematopoietic system, both benign and malignant, are comprehensively cared for: All forms of anaemia, whether congenital or acquired, whether acute or chronic, are shown diagnostically and therapeutically. Bone marrow failure processes from aplastic anaemia to myelodysplastic syndromes are supervised as well as the overproduction of blood components in the context of myeloproliferative diseases. Of course, the treated spectrum of diseases also includes diseases of the lymphatic system such as lymphoma (lymphoma), myeloid diseases and all types of leukaemia. Comprehensive clarification of pathological findings in the blood count is part of our task profile, such as the care of patients with a range of specific immune and autoimmune diseases.
We take great care to explore complex interrelationships, to browse the relevant diagnoses and to create modern therapy plans.
More about haematological outpatient clinic
We make every effort to provide patients with a brief, outpatient assessment of their findings (including, for example, outpatient bone marrow examinations without a necessary inpatient stay). A wealth of highly specialized, cytological, molecular biological and immunological procedures are used in diagnostics in close cooperation with the molecular cytological laboratory located directly in the outpatient area for diagnostics.
Therapy planning and management:
The latest therapy methods are adapted to the state of the art, used and supplemented by the possibility of obtaining very early access to medical progress in the context of clinical therapy studies. The therapies are partly provided by the day clinic of the III. Medicine in the field of oncological outpatient care. This is done under control and guidance of the therapy by the haematological outpatient clinic. In this context, transfusion therapies are also carried out, which are also predominantly outpatient.
Advice to the entire family on congenital diseases of the blood-forming system is provided at any time.

The coagulation outpatient clinic deals with the diagnosis and therapy of diseases caused by disorders of the balance in the blood clotting, which can cause bleeding tendencies as well as thrombosis tendencies. After a detailed discussion with the patient, a targeted blood sample is taken in the coagulation laboratory of the central laboratory, where the apparatus is diagnosed. Upon receipt of the laboratory findings, the diagnosis and a therapy proposal are prepared in conjunction with the current clinic and medical history.
More about the coagulation outpatient clinic
The term “HÄMOSTASE” refers to a complex interplay of processes, tissues, cells and substances, which on the one hand ensures the flowability of the blood at any place and at any time, and on the other hand ensures its coagulation after injury – again at any place and at any time. The regulation of these interactive systems takes place at different levels:
Through cell surfaces
Cell receptors and cell products
as well as by activators and inhibitors
Disorders of these tightly regulated systems can cause bleeding tendencies as well as thrombotic tendencies. Symptoms can be mild to life-threatening, congenital or acquired. If there is a slight suspicion of a disease with haemorrhagic diathesis or thrombophilia, a clotting diagnosis should be carried out in a special outpatient clinic.
As in any clinical sub-area, a thorough medical history is an essential part of the diagnosis of sufficient time must be devoted. For this reason, and in order to ensure a patient-friendly process, it is essential to make an appointment, and of course the urgency is addressed. If preliminary analyses have already been carried out abroad, these should be brought along for reasons of time and cost savings. After a detailed discussion with the patient, a targeted blood sample is taken in the coagulation laboratory of the central laboratory, where the apparatus is diagnosed. Upon receipt of the laboratory findings, the diagnosis and a therapy proposal are prepared in conjunction with the current clinic and medical history. In some diseases, multiple blood samples and tests are required, and the patients are informed in detail.
Hemophilia – Centre
In addition to this diagnostic activity, we also care for haemophilia patients as a haemophilia centre in the province of Salzburg. On the one hand, the affected adult patients are subjected to regular checks, during which the most up-to-date forms of therapy are discussed. On the other hand, a therapy plan is drawn up both in acute situations and before planned operations. Particularly in the case of interventions in haemophilia patients, close and reliable cooperation is required between the surgeons, the central laboratory and the responsible haemostatic biologist who draws up the therapy plan. “
