  1. 1. High Performance Breath Analysis

    Author : Jonas Ljungblad; Mia Folke; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; elektronik; Electronics;

    Abstract : Alcohol breath testing on a larger scale will save lives. Alcohol abuse is a major contributor to death and disease. Alcohol intake affects the human body by significantly longer response time to external stimuli. In situations where the senses need to be on alert this delay can be the difference between life and death. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluations of measurement techniques in functional dyspepsia : electrogastrography, satiety drinking test and 14C-urea breath test

    Author : Shahab Abid; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; functional dyspepsia; electrogastrography; 14C urea breath test; satiety drinking test;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to evaluate the clinical usefulness of certain measurement techniques that may be helpful in the understanding of functional dyspepsia (FD). Electrogastrography (EGG) parameters were evaluated and found unable to discriminate one specific motility disorder from other motility disorders of the gut. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biokinetics and radiation dosimetry of 14C-labelled triolein, urea, glycocholic acid and xylose in man. Studies related to nuclear medicine “breath tests” using accelerator mass spectrometry

    Author : Mikael Gunnarsson; Malmö Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Clinical physics; radiology; tomography; medical instrumentation; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering; Kärnfysik; Nuclear physics; xylose.; glycocholic acid; urea; triolein; Dosimetry; Biokinetic; AMS; Accelerator mass spectrometry; 14C; Breath test;

    Abstract : 14C-labelled substances have been used in biomedical research and clinical medicine for over 50 years. Physicians and scientists however, often hesitate to use these substances in patients and volunteers because the radiation dosimetry is unclear. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of allergic and respiratory symptoms in adolescence and early adulthood : Risk factors and gender differences

    Author : Pia Kalm-Stephens; Kjell Alving; Andrei Malinovschi; Åsa Neuman; Gunn Engvall; Eva Rönmark; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Background: Asthma and allergic diseases have increased in prevalence for several decades and affect a substantial number of individuals in everyday life, as well as their families and public healthcare resources. Subjects with asthma report impaired self-rated health. READ MORE

  5. 5. Respiratory drive assessment : An evaluation of the breath-by-breath occlusion pressure method in man

    Author : Lars Gösta Hellström; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : A simplified concept of respiratory drive is to consider it as the integrated "output" from the CNS to the respiratory "pump" muscles. This drive is a result of a complex central respiratory pattern generation, and can in abnormal situations, e.g. of pathological or pharmacological origin, be altered. READ MORE
