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

    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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karlis Purins; Anders Lewén; Per Enblad; Oliver Sakowitz; [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

  3. 3. Electrical Bioimpedance Cerebral Monitoring: Fundamental Steps towards Clinical Application

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fernando Seoane Martinez; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biomedical Instrumentation; Ischemia; Hypoxia; Non-invasive Monitoring; Electrical Bioimpedance Spectroscopy; Stroke; Impedance Measurements; Brain Monitoring;

    Abstract : Neurologically related injuries cause a similar number of deaths as cancer, and brain damage is the second commonest cause of death in the world and probably the leading cause of permanent disability. The devastating effects of most cases of brain damage could be avoided if it were detected and medical treatment initiated in time. READ MORE
