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

    Author : Klara Petersson; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : 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

  2. 2. Acoustofluidic preparation of whole blood components

    Author : Anke Urbansky; NanoLund: Centre for Nanoscience; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; acoustophoresis; ultrasound; microfluidics; cell separation; blood; blood fractionation;

    Abstract : Whole blood is rich in information about the physical state of an individual and is routinely used in a variety of clinical and research applications. In this thesis, the use of a microfluidic technique called acoustophoresis for separation of different blood components is explored. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Force of Blood : Epidemiological studies of blood pressure in stroke, atrial fibrillation and primary care

    Author : Johan-Emil Bager; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; blood pressure; hypertension; stroke; myocardial infarction; atrial fibrillation; anticoagulants; LDL cholesterol; primary health care;

    Abstract : Aim: The overarching aim of this thesis was to investigate the prevalence, temporal trends and associations to cardiovascular outcomes of blood pressure levels in patients in Västra Götaland. Methods and findings: In Study I, Cox regression analysis was used to investigate associations between blood pressure and mortality in 799 patients with acute ischemic stroke who were identified in the quality register of a stroke ward at Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

  5. 5. Blood Culture Negative Endocarditis

    Author : Maria Werner; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : Infective endocarditis IE ; Blood culture negative endocarditis CNE ; Blood culture; Diagnosis; Mortality; Bartonella; Coxiella burnetii; Chlamydophila pneumoniae; Prevalence; Aminoglycoside;

    Abstract : The lethal disease infective endocarditis (IE) is caused by microorganisms that attack heart valves. Early diagnosis and identification of the causative agents are important for the choice of treatment. Optimal treatment may be difficult to achieve if blood culture negative endocarditis (CNE) is present. READ MORE
