  2. 2. Perioperative complications in obese patients A thesis on risk reducing strategies

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Fredrik Ander; Örebro universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intubation time; videolaryngoscopy; obesity; esophagogastric junction; remifentanil; esmolol; high-resolution manometry; pulmonary aspiration; postoperative pain; postoperative opioid-sparing;

    Abstract : Aspiration of gastric content and delayed or failed intubation are the leading causes of anesthesia-related mortality and morbidity. In the recovery period, airway obstruction with subsequent hypoxia is a relatively common cause of morbidity, and is highly associated to the amount of opioids administered, especially in obese patients.

  3. 3. Inactivation of pulmonary surfactant and its prevention

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Guido Stichtenoth; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Pulmonary surfactant is a lipoprotein complex coating the conducting airways down to the terminal airspaces. Its main function is to lower surface tension at the air liquid interface thus preventing alveolar collapse at end expiration. READ MORE

  4. 4. Long-gap esophageal atresia - The development of an experimental model of esophageal regeneration in vivo as an attempt to improve clinical outcome

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Linus Jönsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Long-gap esophageal atresia; Follow-up; guided tissue regeneration; small intestinal submucosa; pulmonary physiology; esophageal replacement; extracellular matrix; macrophage phenotype;

    Abstract : Background: A subset (~8-15%) of the patients born with esophageal atresia (EA) suffer from a lack of esophageal tissue, which makes a primary anastomosis difficult to achieve. This is most common in patients born without a distal fistula between the trachea and the distal esophageal segment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regional ventilation, pulmonary perfusion and gas exchange in supine and prone positions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Margareta Mure; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ARDS; ALI; CPAP; Gas exchange; Prone position; Regional ventilation; Regional perfusion; Supine position;

    Abstract : The rationale for treating patients with acute lung injury in the prone position springs from a number of observations. Clinical reports have documented improved oxygenation when patients are turned prone. Regional vascular conductance is higher in dorsal lung regions regardless of posture. READ MORE
