  1. 1. Ventilation distribution in the lung periphery measured by inert gas washout : influence of increased gravity, anti-G suit pressure, body posture, and breathing pattern

    Author : Mikael Grönkvist; Göran Hedenstierna; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : acceleration; anti-G suit; body posture; cdi; dcdi; human centrifuge; He; hypergravuty; lung; multiple-breath washout; single-breath washout; SF 6; standing; supune; trapped gas; ventilation distribution; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The lung is highly sensitive to forces of gravity and acceleration, and to surrounding pressures. This thesis aimed to assess the effects on ventilation distribution in peripheral lung units when changing the direction or magnitude of the gravitational vector and when compressing the lower body half with an anti-G suit (AGS).

  2. 2. Cancer During Adolescence: Psychosocial Consequences and Methodological Issues

    Author : Elisabet Mattsson; Louise von Essen; Gustaf Ljungman; Gunnar Steineck; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Caring sciences; adolescents; cancer; consequences; HADS; negative; positive; SF-36; Vårdvetenskap;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate psychosocial consequences of cancer during adolescence, using a longitudinal approach. An additional aim was to investigate if mode of administration has an influence on adolescents’ and young adults’ self-reported psychosocial function. READ MORE

  3. 3. Surgical Treatment of Pelvic Ring Injuries and Acetabular Fractures : Aspects on Patient-reported Outcome

    Author : Björn Hernefalk; Sune Larsson; Anna Tötterman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pelvic ring injuries; acetabular fractures; patient.reported outcome; surgical treatment; PDI; SF-36; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the present thesis was to study the patient perspective on outcome following surgical treatment of pelvic ring injuries and acetabular fractures. All studies were based on patients treated for such injuries at the Department of Orthopaedics, Uppsala University Hospital, Sweden. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis, combining research in climate science and educational science, investigates different aspects of climate knowledge. It consists of five papers and covers three major topics: emission metrics, public understanding of atmospheric CO2 accumulation, and spatial modelling of natural resource use. READ MORE

  5. 5. Factors in secondary prevention subsequent to distal radius fracture : Focus on physical function, co-morbidity, bone mineral density and health-related quality of life

    Author : Helena Nordvall; Jack Lysholm; Gunnevi Sundelin; Margareta Möller; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; distal radius fracture; bone mineral density BMD ; functional tests; mortality; morbidity; the SF-36; fall diary; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    Abstract : In Sweden approximately 25000 distal radius fractures occur annually, which is 37 % of all fractures related to osteoporosis. In this thesis, risk factors for osteoporosis, bone mineral density (BMD) and health-related quality of life (the SF-36) were compared in patients who suffered a distal radius fracture after low energy trauma with a control group matched on the basis of age, gender, and municipality of residence.
