A distinction must be made between the following costs

  1. pure product costs per unit
  2. Product costs per application
  3. Product costs per day
  4. Product costs per therapy until success
  5. Total costs incl. personnel costs until the therapy is successful.

In clinical care, the decisive cost factor is likely to be the time after which the patient can leave the clinic.
Points 1 to 4 are meaningless if the balance at point 5 is positive. A real comparison, however, is only possible with respect to points 1, 2 and 3, since the success of points 4 and 5 depends decisively on the general environment and the condition of the patient. There is simply an infinite number of different prerequisites, two really comparable patients are difficult to find.
