  1. 1. Sepsis - an ED perspective. Sepsis Alert & Biomarkers

    Author : Mari Rosenqvist; Kardiovaskulär forskning - hypertoni; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Sepsis; Emergency Department; biomarkers; MR-proADM; penKid; triage; Sepsis Alert; implementation;

    Abstract : Background: Sepsis, the life-threatening organ dysfunction due to dysregulated host response to an infection, is a medical emergency. Early diagnosis and treatment are important factors to prevent mortality and morbidity. However, sepsis can be diffuse and difficult to interpret. READ MORE

  2. 2. Heart failure : advanced treatments and novel hormonal responses

    Author : Stanislava Zabarovskaja; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Background: Heart failure (HF) affects 2-3% of the Western population and is associated with a 1 year mortality of 20%. Despite therapeutic advances over the last decades, numerous unanswered questions remain regarding the impact of currently established therapies as well as potential new targets for therapy. Aims to investigate: 1. READ MORE

  3. 3. Neurohormonal activation, Symptoms and health-related quality of life in patients with atrial fibrillation eligible for radiofrequency ablation

    Author : Emmanouil Charitakis; Håkan Walfridsson; Urban Alehagen; Jonas Schwieler; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. In order to improve the management of patients with AF, a better understanding of patients’ arrhythmia-related symptoms and health-related quality of life (HRQoL), as well as a finer grasp of the effect of AF initiation and the revolutionary treatment of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) on neurohormonal balance are of great importance.

  4. 4. Biomarkers in Cardiovascular Dysautonomia: an Emerging Field

    Author : Madeleine Johansson; Kardiovaskulär forskning - hypertoni; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomarkers; Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction; Syncope; Orthostatic hypotension; Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome; Cardiovascular disease; Autonomic dysfunction;

    Abstract : Background: Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction is a multifactorial disorder manifested as orthostatic hypotension (OH) and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). OH has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), and the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood and explored. READ MORE

  5. 5. Population-based prediction of atrial fibrillation

    Author : Gustav Smith; Kardiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; prediction; epidemiology; genetics; natriuretic peptide; heart failure;

    Abstract : Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia and increases in prevalence. As AF confers increased risk of morbidity, stroke, dementia and mortality, a major objective of cardiovascular epidemiology today is the development of tools for prediction and prevention of AF and its consequences.
