  1. 1. Protective Mechanical Ventilation in Inflammatory and Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia Models

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jesper Sperber; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mechanical ventilation; Systemic inflammation; Pneumonia; Ventilator-associated pneumonia; Endotoxin; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : Severe infections, trauma or major surgery can each cause a state of systemic inflammation. These causes for systemic inflammation often coexist and complicate each other. Mechanical ventilation is commonly used during major surgical procedures and when respiratory functions are failing in the intensive care setting. READ MORE

  5. 5. A life-course approach to chronic kidney disease risks and consequences

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Per-Ola Sundin; Örebro universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic kidney disease; pneumonia; grip strength; creatinine; cystatin C; adolescence; life-course epidemiology; risk factor; mortality;

    Abstract : Successful primary prevention of chronic kidney disease (CKD) relies on understanding the pathways leading to established disease, including how they extend over the life-course. Projects in this thesis examine risk factors for CKD and consequences of impaired kidney function from a life-course perspective using routinely collected health-data in Swedish registers and research cohort data from the United Kingdom.
