  1. 1. Effects of Delayed versus Early Cord Clamping on Healthy Term Infants

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ola Andersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; active management; birth; breast feeding; cord clamping; ferritin; growth; haemoglobin; human infant; infections; iron; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anemia; iron status; morbidity; neurodevelopment; randomised controlled trial; umbilical cord; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study maternal and infant effects of delayed cord clamping (≥180 seconds, DCC) compared to early (≤10 seconds, ECC) in a randomised controlled trial. Practice and guidelines regarding when to clamp the cord vary globally, and different meta-analyses have shown contradictory conclusions on benefits and disadvantages of DCC and ECC. READ MORE

  2. 2. Perspectives from a human-centred archaeology : Iron Age people and society on Öland

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Helene Wilhelmson; [2017-03-15]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Osteology; bioarchaeology; Iron Age; Scandinavia; 3D; digital; Image Based Modeling; GIS; isotopes; Oxygen; Strontium; Carbon; Nitrogen; trophic level effect; fractionation; chronology; network; Virtual Taphonomy; human-centred archaeology; mortographies; dietary shift; integration; immigration; diet; migration; violence; burial; Viking Age; Öland; island;

    Abstract : The objective of this study was to develop, test and evaluate a specifically defined interdisciplinary approach—the human-centred approach—as applied to a case study, Iron Age Öland. Four themes were selected to highlight different aspects of particular interest in Öland: taphonomy, diet, migration, and social organization. READ MORE

  3. 3. Working Animals and Skeletal Lesions : Paleopathology of Cattle and Horse in Iron Age and Medieval Öland, Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Archaeology and Classical Studies, Stockholm Univeristy

    Author : Ylva Telldahl; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Skeletal lesions; draught use of cattle; sacrificed horses; Iron Age; Middle Ages; Eketorp ringfort; Skedemosse wetland; Öland; sweden; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : Central to this thesis is the relationship between animal husbandry practices and the associated pathological conditions. Since bone elements from the extremities are subjected to abnormal load when animals are put to hard work this research aims to go further and interpret the prevalence of varying lesions and their connection with animal husbandry by using methods such as osteometric analysis, conventional radiograpic and bone mineral study, as well as incorporated molecular analysis.

  4. 4. The aging brain and changes in cognitive performance Findings from morphometry and quantitative susceptibility mapping of iron

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Psychology, Stokholm University

    Author : Ninni Persson; Håkan Fischser; Kristine B. Walhovd; [2015]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; brain aging; volumes; ndividual differences; QSM; cognitive aging; iron; episodic memory; fluid-; crystalized abilities; sex differences; gender differences; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : Brain aging is a heterogeneous phenomenon, and this thesis illustrates how the course of aging can vary within individuals over time and between individuals as a function of age, sex, and genetic variability. We used two contrasts from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), namely spin-lattice T1-weighted imaging, and quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) from gradient-echo images, to picture the aging brain, by means of morphometric measures and brain-iron concentrations.

  5. 5. Delayed cord clamping in Nepal-Evidence for implementation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nisha Rana; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Attitude; Clinical Practice; Ferritin; Haemoglobin; Iron deficiency; Iron deficiency anaemia; Iron status; Jaundice; Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia; Newborn; Neurodevelopment; Randomized controlled trial; Umbilical cord clamping.; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis were to investigate effects of timing of umbilical cord clamping on newborn health, and on infant outcomes up to 12 months of age in a high-risk population and to explore the context of implementing changed umbilical cord clamping practices in Nepal.A randomised controlled trial with 540 late preterm and term infants born by normal vaginal delivery was set up at a maternity hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal.
