  1. 1. The significance of risk adjustment for the assessment of results in intensive care. : An analysis of risk adjustment models used in Swedish intensive care

    Author : Lars Engerström; Sten M. Walther; Folke Sjöberg; Mats Fredrikson; Kathy Rowan; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : To study the development of mortality in intensive care over time or compare different departments, you need some kind of risk adjustment to make analysis meaningful since patient survival varies with severity of the disease. With the aid of a risk adjustment model, expected mortality can be calculated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wrestling with Textual Violence : A Case Study of the Jephthah Narrative in Antiquity and Modernity with Special Regard to Gender

    Author : Mikael Sjöberg; Lars Hartman; Hanna Stenström; David Miller Gunn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Humanities and religion; feminism; feminist exegesis; feminist biblical interpretation; gender; classic; canon; ethics of interpretation; narratology; Jephthah; Judges; Pseudo-Philo; Josephus; Handel; Grant Watson; Amos Oz; HUMANIORA OCH RELIGIONSVETENSKAP; HUMANITIES and RELIGION; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP; gamla testamentets exegetik; Old Testament Exegesis;

    Abstract : How may readers handle the encounter with violence in a “classical text”? The purpose of this thesis is to contribute to the debate on the ethics of biblical interpretation with special regard to feminism. To fulfil that aim, a case study of the narrative of Jephthah is made and its implications are discussed at a more general level. READ MORE

  3. 3. Amine oxidases in dental pulp : a study with special regard to a semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase with catalytic potency towards serotonin

    Author : Astrid Norqvist-Sjöberg; Lars Oreland; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The amine oxidizing capacity of piglet dental pulp tissue has been investigated. At least six separate enzyme activities could be distinguished:- a soluble semicarbazide-sensitive (SSAO) activity towards benzylamine, most likely to be derived from the content of blood plasma within the pulp tissue;- a soluble pulp tissue SSAO activity with most properties in common with the plasma enzyme, however with great efficiency not only regarding benzylamine but also tryptamine;- a tissue bound SSAO activity with activity towards benzylamine, tryptamine, tyramine and ß-phenylethylamine;- a tissue bound semicarbazide-sensitive activity towards serotonin (SSA0-5HT) (a combination of properties never reported before);- a mitochondrially bound and clorgyline-sensitive monoamine oxidase-A (MAO-A) activity with activity towards serotonin;- a mitochondrially bound and deprenyl-sensitive MAO-B activity with activity towards e.

  4. 4. Regional Geoid Determination Methods for the Era of Satellite Gravimetry : Numerical Investigations Using Synthetic Earth Gravity Models

    Author : Jonas Ågren; Lars E. Sjöberg; Zdenek Martince; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; geoid determination; GOCE; synthetic earth gravity models; kernel modification; downward continuation; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : It is the purpose of this thesis to investigate different regional geoid determination methods with respect to their feasibility for use with a future GOCE satellite-only Earth Gravity Model (EGM). This includes investigations of various techniques, which involve different approximations, as well as the expected accuracy. READ MORE

  5. 5. Recovering Moho parameters using gravimetric and seismic data

    Author : Majid Abrehdary; Lars E. Sjöberg; Mohammad Bagherbandi; Pavel Novák; KTH; []
    Keywords : crust; gravity; mantle; Moho depth; non-isostatic effect; residual isostatic topography; stripping; thermal state; Vening Meinesz-Moritz model; Geodesy and Geoinformatics; Geodesi och geoinformatik;

    Abstract : Isostasy is a key concept in geoscience to interpret the state of mass balance between the Earth’s crust and mantle. There are four well-known isostatic models: the classical models of Airy/Heiskanen (A/H), Pratt/Hayford (P/H), and Vening Meinesz (VM) and the modern model of Vening Meinesz-Moritz (VMM). READ MORE
