  1. 1. Ambulatory blood pressure and components of the metabolic syndrome in the population : With reference to the renin-angiotensin system, IgF-I, IGFBP-1, neuropentide Y, and leptin

    Author : Fredrik Nyström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The term "the metabolic syndrome" has been given to the constellation of insulin resistance, high blood pressure and hyperlipidemia. In western countries it is strongly associated with obesity and atherosclerosis. The cause of the metabolic syndrome is, however, incompletely understood. READ MORE

  2. 2. Coagulation process characteristics and pollutant removal from urban runoff

    Author : Fredrik Nyström; Inga Herrmann; Annelie Hedström; Maria Viklander; Michael Cimbritz; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; stormwater; urban snowmelt; road runoff; coagulation flocculation sedimentation; coagulation characteristics; coagulation mechanism; treatment efficiency; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering; Centrumbildning - Centrum för dagvattenhantering DRIZZLE ; Centre - Centre for Stormwater Management DRIZZLE ;

    Abstract : Many different stormwater control measures (SCMs) can be implemented in order to mitigate issues with polluted stormwater flows into receiving water bodies.  The treatment function of  SCMs is commonly based on the removal of particles by sedimentation, thereby also removing pollutants associated with particles.

  3. 3. Modeling and Visualization for Virtual Interaction with Medical Image Data

    Author : Fredrik Nysjö; Ingela Nyström; Filip Malmberg; Ingrid Carlbom; Alexandru C. Telea; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; medical image processing; volume rendering; haptic rendering; medical visualization; virtual surgery planning; Computerized Image Processing; Datoriserad bildbehandling;

    Abstract : Interactive systems for exploring and analysing medical three dimensional (3D) volume image data using techniques such as stereoscopic rendering and haptics can lead to new workflows for virtual surgery planning. This includes the design of patient-specific surgical guides and plates for additive manufacturing (3D printing). READ MORE

  4. 4. Structured management, Symptoms, Health-related Quality of Life and Alcohol in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation

    Author : Neshro Barmano; Håkan Walfridsson; Ulla Walfridsson; Jan-Erik Karlsson; Emmanouil Charitakis; Fredrik Nyström; Mårten Rosenqvist; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia, affecting at least 2.9 % of the Swedish population. Although AF is associated with increased risk of ischaemic stroke, there have been many reports on the underuse of oral anticoagulants (OAC) and non-adherence to guidelines in other areas as well.

  5. 5. The Role of Kidney Oxygen Homeostasis for the Development of Kidney Disease

    Author : Carla Carvalho; Fredrik Palm; Peter Hansell; Malou Friederich; Jenny Nyström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Oxygen; Kidney mitochondria; Hypoxia-inducible factors; Prolyl hydroxylase; von Hippel-Lindau; Diabetes; Aging; Kidney; Sodium; RAAS; Fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : The relation between oxygen supply and demand determines tissue oxygen tension (PO2). When intrarenal tissue PO2 decreases, any compensatory increase in oxygen supply via increased renal blood flow is likely to increase glomerular filtration rate. READ MORE
