  1. 1. Alternative Methods for Assessment of Split Renal Function

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Henrik Björkman; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Radiology; Split renal function; Live kidney donor; CT; Renography; Dynamic MRI; Renal volume; Respiratory triggering; Radiologisk forskning;

    Abstract : Living kidney donation is a clinical situation with unique features in the sense that healthy individuals voluntarily expose themselves to certain risks and inconveniences. Therefore, eliminating as much of the associated discomfort as possible is crucial. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hyaluronan and Renal Fluid Handling Studies during Normal and Pathological Conditions of Renal Function

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Viktoria Göransson; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; CD44; gerbils; hyaluronan; ischemia-reperfusion; kidney; osmolality; oxygen tension; rat; renomedullary interstitial cells; water; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidney is the major organ responsible for the regulation of the composition and volume of the body fluids, which is essential for homeostasis. The glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan (HA), with extreme water-binding capacity, is present in the interstitium of the kidney with a heterogenous distribution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Blood pressure, renal functional and structural changes, in normal and preeclamptic pregnancy

    University dissertation from Helena Strevens, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Hospital, S-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Helena Strevens; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstetrics; renal biopsy; renal function; pregnancy; preeclampsia; physiology; parity; endotheliosis; cystatin C; Blood pressure; BMI; gynaecology; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet;

    Abstract : The kidneys play a pivotal role in the adaptive physiology of the pregnant woman, presenting some changes at term similar to the changes found in preeclampsia – a state of increased risk of fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality. The aim of these investigations was to explore possible similarities in blood pressure regulation, renal function and structure in normal term and preeclamptic pregnancy, to ascertain whether both conditions in fact are different degrees of an adaptive process in reaction to pregnancy.

  4. 4. Minimal volume ventilation in lung injury With special reference to apnea and buffer treatment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Staffan Höstman; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; VILI; THAM; buffers; apneic oxygenation; respiratory acidosis; hypercapnia; low volume ventilation; mechanical ventilation; ultra-protective ventilation; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : A fairly large portion of patients receiving surgical or intensive care will need mechanical ventilation at some point. The potential ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) is thus of interest. One of the main causal factors in VILI is the cyclic energy shifts, i.e. READ MORE
