  1. 1. Assessment of increased upper airway resistance in snorers. Methodological and diagnostic considerations

    Author : Sören Berg; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; arousals.; pharyngeal pressure; intrathoracic pressure; hypopnea; respiratory ventilation; oxygenation; Non apneic snorers; upper airway obstruction; Otorhinolaryngology; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen;

    Abstract : Sleep-related partial upper airway obstruction may cause increased morbidity and mortality, but diagnosis and treatment of patients is varying and inconsistent. The present studies were aimed to evaluate presently applied indirect methods for assessing respiratory ventilation and to investigate the value and accuracy in estimating upper airway resistance during sleep by measuring intrathoracic pressure variation with a microchip catheter in the esophagus.

  3. 3. Hyaluronan in sepsis : A clinical and experimental study

    Author : Sören Berg; Steven J. Allen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Sepsis and septic shock are important causes of morbidity and mortality in the intensive care unit (ICU). Mortality rates in septic shock are estimated to be 40-50%, in spite of modem intensive care. Death is commonly caused by cardiovascular collapse and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS).

  4. 4. Nasal obstruction – impact on insomnia symptoms and sleep-disordered breathing

    Abstract : Background: Nasal obstruction is very common in the general population, but the role of nasal obstruction in sleep quality is not clear. Nasal obstruction is also prevalent in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and may contribute to poor adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Preventing Infections Related to Central Venous and Arterial Catheters

    Author : Fredrik Hammarskjöld; Bo-Eric Malmvall; Sören Berg; Håkan Hanberger; Bengt Gårdlund; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Central venous catheters (CVCs) are indispensable in modern medical practice. Serious complications associated with CVC use include catheter-related infection (CRI) and catheter related-bloodstream infection (CRBSI) both of which contribute to morbidity, mortality and healthcare costs.
