    Abstract : The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and the upper esophageal sphincter (UES) play a central role in preventing regurgitation and aspiration. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate the UES, LES, esophageal (E) and barrier (Br) pressures (P) using high resolution solid state manometry (HRSM). READ MORE

  3. 3. Nonlinear Modeling and Feedback Control of Drug Delivery in Anesthesia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Margarida M. Silva; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : Engineering and Technology Electrical Engineering; Electronic Engineering; Information Engineering Control Engineering; Teknik och teknologier Elektroteknik och elektronik Reglerteknik; anesthesia; drug delivery; feedback control; nonlinear modeling; pharmacokinetics pharmacodynamics; PID control; system identification; Wiener model; Elektroteknik med inriktning mot reglerteknik; Electrical Engineering with specialization in Automatic Control;

    Abstract : General anesthesia is a drug-induced reversible state where neuromuscular blockade (NMB), hypnosis, and analgesia (jointly denoted by depth of anesthesia - DoA) are guaranteed. This thesis concerns mathematical modeling and feedback control of the effect of the muscle relaxants atracurium and rocuronium, the hypnotic propofol, and the analgesic remifentanil. READ MORE

  4. 4. Topical anesthesia of the tympanic membrane : an experimental animal study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Sten-Hermann Schmidt; Umeå universitet.; [1987]
    Keywords : Medical and Health Sciences Clinical Medicine Otorhinolaryngology; Medicin och hälsovetenskap Klinisk medicin Oto-rino-laryngologi; Topical anesthesia; middle ear; tympanic membrane; cochlea; collagen fibres; lidocaine; 96 % phenol; Bonain s liquid; auditory brainstem response; ototoxicity; cytocochleogram; scanning electron microscopy; rat; guinea pig;

    Abstract : Myringotomy plays an important role in otological therapy. The procedure requires an efficient anesthesia, which can be obtained without general anesthesia. However, the use of local anesthetics on the tympanic membrane (TM) has been abandoned in many places, as general anesthesia has been readily available. READ MORE

  5. 5. On Automation in Anesthesia

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Kristian Soltesz; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : medical applications; PID conrol; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN; MEDICINE;

    Abstract : The thesis discusses closed-loop control of the hypnotic and the analgesic components of anesthesia. The objective of the work has been to develop a system which independently controls the intravenous infusion rates of the hypnotic drug propofol and analgesic drug remifentanil. READ MORE
