    Abstract : This thesis, within the subfield of computer science known as computer vision, deals with the use of scale-space analysis in early low-level processing of visual information. The main contributions comprise the following five subjects:The formulation of a scale-space theory for discrete signals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Pain treatment after surgery With special reference to patient-controlled analgesia, early extubation and the use of paracetamol

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Repro Print

    Author : Pia Holmér Pettersson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acetaminophen; analgesia; patient-controlled; analgesics; day surgery; heart surgery; opioid; ketobemidone; pain measurement; pain; postoperative; paracetamol; postoperative nausea and vomiting; visual analogue scale; Acetaminophen; analgesia; patient-controlled; analgesics; day surgery; heart surgery; opioid; ketobemidone; pain measurement; pain; postoperative; paracetamol; postoperative nausea and vomiting; visual analogue scale;

    Abstract : The introduction of general anaesthesia eliminated pain during surgical operations. After surgery, however, pain and postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) have remained a persistent problem for many patients. The need for analgesics varies widely among patients, therefore standardised treatment protocols are often insufficient pain treatment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nonparametric tests for comparing two treatments by using ordinal data

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Author : Helen Wahlström; Örebro universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistik; change; clinical trial; Monte Carlo; ordered categorical data; paired data; permutation test; Pitman efficiency; power; stratification; ties; visual analogue scale; Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney statistic; statistik; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Statistics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Statistik; Statistics; Statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns four nonparametric tests for comparing two treatments in a randomized controlled clinical trial when the main response variable generates discrete or continuous ordinal data and measurements are made at baseline and follow-up.In the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test (WMW) the baseline values are not taken into account at all, but in the other three tests both baseline and follow-up values are used.

  4. 4. Women's experience of pain and pain relief in assisted reproductive technology

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitetsbibliotek

    Author : Ann-Louise Gejervall; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oocyte retrieval; pain relief; randomized controlled trial; pain; fertilization rate; embryo development; Visual Analogue Scale;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to evaluate and compare different methods for pain relief during oocyte retrieval and to study women’s expectations and experiences of pain during oocyte retrieval in conjunction with in vitro fertilization. Paper I, an open prospective randomized controlled trial, including 160 women had the primary aims of comparing the pain relieving effects of electro-acupuncture and conventional analgesia, comprising opiates, in conjunction with oocyte retrieval, and to compare post-operative well-being between groups.
