  1. 1. Pulmonary ventilation and perfusion assessed by electrical impedance tomography - Experimental studies in pigs

    Author : Anneli Fagerberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : electrical impedance tomography; V Q matching; pig; endotoxinaemic ALI; ACE inhibitor;

    Abstract : Pulmonary ventilation and perfusion and ventilation/perfusion (V/Q) matching determine gas exchange in every lung unit in the healthy state and in the pathologically altered lung. Mismatch of V and Q lead to hypoxaemia and hypercapnia and monitoring of V/Q relations are thus important in critical illness. READ MORE

  2. 2. Heart Failure Management in the Elderly. Focus on Health Economics and Quality of Life

    Author : Charles Cline; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; elderly; Cardiovascular system; Heart failure; hospitalisation; health economics; compliance; quality of life; ACE inhibitor.; management programme;

    Abstract : The incidence and prevalence of heart failure (HF) has increased successively over the past decade. Mortality and morbidity is high. It is the most common cause of hospitalisation in the elderly and has been estimated to account for 1-3% of health care costs in many countries. There is a need therefore, to improve care for HF patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibition and aspirin in congestive heart failure

    Author : Tord Juhlin; Kardiologiska klinikens forskargrupp; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; clinical trial; ARBs; renal function; congestive heart failure; ischaemic heart disease; NSAIDs; ACE-inhibitors; aspirin; dose dependency; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors act by decreasing production of angiotensin II and by potentiating the effects of bradykinin by inhibition of its breakdown. Bradykinin exerts part of its effects via vasodilating prostaglandins. Since the cyclooxygenase (COX)-inhibitors, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Endothelium-dependent vasodilation in essential hypertension

    Author : Jonas Millgård; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; endothelium; hypertension; human; blood pressure; vasodilation; ACE-inhibition; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Internal Medicine; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : The vascular endothelium plays a crucial role in the regulation of several homeostatic parameters in the circulation. In this thesis, the influences of essential hypertension and antihypertensive agents on endothelium-dependent vasodilation (EDV) were evaluated in the human forearm circulation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of Renal Hyaluronan in Water Handling : Studies in vivo and in vitro

    Author : Sara Stridh; Peter Hansell; Mats Rundgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kidney; water balance; fluid handling; diabetes; nephropathy; ACE fetopathy; reabsorption; hyaluronic acid; glycosaminoglycan; GAG; extracellular matrix; mTOR; rapamycin; streptozotocin;

    Abstract : Hyaluronan (HA) is a negatively charged extracellular matrix (ECM) component with water-attracting properties. It is the dominating ECM component in the renal medullary interstitium, where the amount changes in relation to hydration status: it increases during hydration and decreases during dehydration.
