  1. 1. Aspects on Cardiac Pumping

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Marcus Carlsson; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac Pumping; Ventricular Function; Fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : Cardiac pumping physiology is important for understanding the pathophysiology of patients with cardiac disease. MRI gives the opportunity to measure volumes and flow non-invasively with high accuracy and precision. This thesis examines some aspects on cardiac pumping physiology. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mitral annulus motion in left ventricular pumping

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Kent Emilsson; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : This thesis focus on the role of the mitral annulus motion (MAM) versus outer contour changes in the short axis, in left ventricular (LV) pumping. The influence of atrial contraction on LV dimensions and volumes and the relation between MAM and ejection fraction (EF) in sinus rhythm and in atrial fibrillation was also studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exercise physiology and cardiac function. Aspects on determinants of maximal oxygen uptake

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Katarina Steding Ehrenborg; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; respiratory indices; peak oxygen uptake; heart failure; cardiac magnetic resonance imaging; exercise physiology;

    Abstract : Although the athlete's heart has been of interest for over 100 years, further characterization of the athletes heart is needed in order to understand how training affects cardiac dimensions and function. Few studies have investigated the effects of training in female athletes and few have compared males and females. READ MORE

  5. 5. Imaging and modeling the cardiovascular system

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Elira Maksuti; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac pumping;

    Abstract : Understanding cardiac pumping function is crucial to guiding diagnosis, predicting outcomes of interventions, and designing medical devices that interact with the cardiovascular system. In turn, better diagnostics and treatment of cardiovascular function would improve the prognosis of cardiovascular diseases, which account for 31% of all global deaths. READ MORE
