  1. 1. ICU prognostication: Time to re-evaluate? Register-based studies on improving prognostication for patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU)

    Author : Peder Andersson; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intensive Care; Critical Care; Mortality; Cerebral Performance Category; Cardiac arrest; Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest; Sepsis; Lactate; Troponin; Neuron-specific enolase; Neurofilament light; Age; Elderly; Prognostication; Prediction; Scoring system; Neural net; Artificial neural network; Deep learning; Artificial intelligence;

    Abstract : Background: ICU prognostication is difficult because of patients’ prior comorbidities and their varied reasons for admission. The model used for ICU prognostication in Sweden is the Simplified Acute Physiology Score 3 (SAPS 3), which uses information gathered within one hour of ICU admission to predict 30-day mortality.

  3. 3. The impact of diabetes on cognitive aging and dementia

    Author : Anna Marseglia; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; prediabetes;

    Abstract : The impact of prediabetes and diabetes on different stages of cognitive function during aging remains unclear. This thesis aimed to investigate the impact of prediabetes and of diabetes on cognitive aging—from cognitive deficits, through cognitive decline, to dementia—, explore underlying cerebral mechanisms and identify factors that may protect older adults with diabetes from dementia.

  4. 4. Prediction of neurological outcome after cardiac arrest and targeted temperature management

    Author : Marion Moseby-Knappe; Lund Neurologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurological prognostication; brain injury; cardiac arrest; biomarkers; outcome; CT; guideline;

    Abstract : Background: Prediction of neurological outcome in unconscious patients after cardiac arrest (CA) forms the basis for decisions on further level-of-care based on results from clinical neurological examinations, neuroimaging (CT or MRI), neurophysiology (EEG or SSEP) and blood biomarkers of brain injury. Methods must be highly specific to avoid misclassifying patients with possibilities of a good outcome. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects of post-resuscitation care after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

    Author : Louise Martinell; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; out-of-hospital cardiac arrest; survival; Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator; Prediction of prognosis; mild induced hypothermia;

    Abstract : Background: Cardiac disease is the most common cause of death in the western world and the majority of these deaths are due to out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). In Sweden, approximately 10,000 persons suffer an OHCA annually and in 5000 cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is initiated. READ MORE
