  1. 1. Blood pressure in advanced age with focus on epidemiology, cognitive impairment and mortality

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Lena Molander; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Blood pressure; hypertension; very old; mortality; epidemiology; cognitive impairment; dementia; Blodtryck; hypertoni; mycket gamla; dödlighet; epidemiologi; demens; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Geriatrics and medical gerontology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Geriatrik och medicinsk gerontologi; Geriatrics; geriatrik; epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : The general conception is that blood pressure increases with age, but that diastolic blood pressure (DBP) starts decreasing in the elderly. There are, however, indications that systolic blood pressure (SBP) might also decline in advanced age, but further studies are needed to establish whether this is true. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on sitting pressure and buttock microcirculation : aiming at developing an alarm in the prevention of pressure ulcers in patients with spinal cord injuries

    University dissertation from Institutionen för biomedicin och kirurgi

    Author : Johan Thorfinn; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Blood supply; Buttocks; Hyperemia; Ischemia; Laser-Doppler flowmetry; Microcirculation; Posture physiology; Pressure; Skin blood supply; VETERINARY MEDICINE Medicine; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Medicin;

    Abstract : Pressure ulcers in patients with spinal cord injuries are a major problem, the prevalence in this group being reported as high as 20 – 30 percent. Most pressure ulcers develop around the pelvic girdle, and the key-contributing factor in the development of pressure ulcers is ischaemia due to longstanding pressure. READ MORE

  3. 3. Clinical applications of acoustophoresis in blood based diagnostics

    University dissertation from Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Klara Petersson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2018-02-20]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acoustophoresis; Acoustofluidics; Ultrasound; Microfluidics; Blood; Blood Separation; Blood plasma; Lab-on-a-chip; Point-of-care; Blood diagnostics;

    Abstract : In this thesis, acoustofluidics has been used to process blood samples as a sample preparation step prior to biomarker detection. This is often required as the large amount of blood cells otherwise can interfere with the detection method. Acoustofluidics means moving particles or cells with acoustic forces within microfluidic channels. READ MORE

  4. 4. Heritability of blood pressure: monogenes and polygenes

    University dissertation from Diabetes and Endocrinology

    Author : Cristiano Fava; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]

    Abstract : High blood pressure (BP) is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Both genetic and environmental factors are implicated in BP homeostatsis and hypertension development. READ MORE

  5. 5. High Blood Pressure in Children with Hydronephrosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ammar Nadhom Farman Al-Mashhadi; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
