    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; opioid; chonic pain; long-term opioid treatment; Anaesthetics; Anestesiologi; Anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : After two decades of liberal prescribing of opioids, there has been an increasing recognition of problems connected to the prolonged use of opioids for chronic pain. The aim of my thesis was to explore some consequences of long-term opioid treatment for chronic pain such as problematic opioid use, endocrine disorders, tolerance and genetic variations in pain and opioid response.

  4. 4. Reducing Atelectasis during General Anaesthesia – the Importance of Oxygen Concentration, End-Expiratory Pressure and Patient Factors : A Clinical Study Exploring the Prevention of Atelectasis in Adults

    Author : Lennart Edmark; Mats Enlund; Göran Hedenstierna; Sten Lindahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anaesthesia; general. Lung: Atelectasis; CPAP; Oxygen; PEEP; Ventilation; mechanical; Tomography; X-ray computed.; Anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology; Fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : Background: The use of pure oxygen during preoxygenation and induction of general anaesthesia is a major cause of atelectasis. The interaction between reduced lung volume, resulting in airway closure, and varying inspiratory fractions of oxygen (FIO2) in determining the risk of developing atelectasis is still obscure.

  5. 5. Postoperative pain, inflammation and functional recovery after total hip arthroplasty : Prospective, randomized, clinical studies

    Author : Jan Kuchalik; Anil Gupta; Anders Lundin; Mats Enlund; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Total hip arthroplasty; local infiltration analgesia; intrathecal morphine; femoral nerve block; postoperative pain; spinal anesthesia;

    Abstract : Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is performed in patients with osteoarthritis of the hip joint. Pain following THA is often moderate but no gold stand-ard exists for pain management. Good postoperative pain management may lead to a better quality of life and hip function. READ MORE
