  3. 3. Aspects of neonatal intensive care and anesthesia : Thermal balance and respiratory management

    Author : Victoria Karlsson; Johan Ågren; Lena Hellström-Westas; Filip Fredén; Valeria Perez de Sa; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Neonatal; anesthesia; kangaroo-mother-care; skin-to-skin care; carbon dioxide;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on four articles originating from three studies conducted in the neonatal intensive care unit and the children’s operating deparment at Uppsala University Hospital, Sweden.The overall aim was to obtain new knowledge about thermal balance and care environment in extremely preterm infants during skin-to-skin care (SSC), evaluate different methods of intraoperative monitoring of carbon dioxide (CO2), and to investigate how different levels of inhaled oxygen affect infants’ oxygenation during anesthesia and surgery.

  4. 4. Effects of anesthesia on esophageal sphincters in obese patients

    Author : Alex de León; Magnus Wattwil; Ola Stenqvist; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lower esophageal sphincter; upper esophageal sphincter; barrier pressure; obesity; high-resolution solid-state manometry; anesthesia; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Surgery; Kirurgi; Anaesthetics; Anestesiologi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Anaesthesiology; Anestesiologi;

    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

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

    Author : Margarida M. Silva; Alexander Medvedev; Teresa Mendonça; Torbjörn Wigren; Robain De Keyser; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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
