    Abstract : Neurologically related injuries cause a similar number of deaths ascancer, and brain damage is the second commonest cause of death in theworld and probably the leading cause of permanent disability. Thedevastating effects of most cases of brain damage could be avoided if itwere detected and medical treatment initiated in time. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cognition, Adherence and Stigma in Schizophrenia. The COAST study

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Cecilia Brain; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; schizophrenia; adherence; Medication Event Monitoring System; antipsychotics; pill count; drug attitude; stigma; discrimination; relatives´burden;

    Abstract : Schizophrenia is a serious stigmatizing illness. Antipsychotic medication is a cornerstone in treatment. Non-adherence is a predictor of poor outcome leading to relapse, poor functioning, high mortality and costs. Reported adherence rates vary (8-86%). READ MORE

  3. 3. Brain Tissue Oxygenation in Traumatic Brain Injury Experimental and Clinical Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karlis Purins; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Brain tissue oxygenation; Cerebral metabolism; Traumatic brain injury; Cerebral ischemia; Threshold levels; Neurovent-PTO; Microdialysis; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability. TBI is frequently followed by cerebral ischemia which is a great contributor to secondary brain damage. The main causes of cerebral ischemia are pathophysiological changes in cerebral blood flow and metabolism. READ MORE

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability. Intracranial secondary insults (e.g. intracranial haematoma, brain oedema) and systemic secondary insults (e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optical Monitoring of Cerebral Microcirculation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Peter Rejmstad; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; optical monitoring; cerebral microcirculation; diffuse reflectance spectroswcopy DRS ; laser Doppler flowmetry LDF ;

    Abstract : The cerebral microcirculation consists of a complex network of small blood vessels that support nerve cells with oxygen and nutrition. The blood flow and oxygen delivery in the microcirculatory blood vessels are regulated through mechanisms which may be influenced or impaired by disease or brain damage resulting from conditions such as brain tumors, traumatic brain injury or subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).
