  1. 1. Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients treated by emergency medical systems in Sweden 1990-1995

    Author : Mikael Holmberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ventricular fibrillation; heart arrest; incidence; duration; survival; bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation; adrenalin; intubation.;

    Abstract : Between Jan 1990 and May 1995 the Swedish Cardiac Arrest Registry collected and analysed 14,065 standardised reports on cardiac arrests. The reports emanated from approximately half of Sweden's ambulance districts, which cover five of Sweden's 8.7 million inhabitants. READ MORE

  2. 2. Amnesia and emotional arousal

    Author : Sven-Åke Christianson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Amnesia; memory; psychological trauma; emotional arousal; adrenalin;

    Abstract : The purpose of the present thesis was twofold. First, to study the role of emotional arousal in memory processes, and secondly, to relate this concept to empirical findings of amnesia. In both clinical and experimental settings it has been observed that remembering is impaired for events occurring prior to, and after a traumatic critical event. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development and regulation of alveolar fluid clearance in the guinea pig

    Author : Andreas Norlin; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; oxytocin-induced preterm labor; IRDS; fetal lung fluid; preterm lung development; amiloride-sensitive sodium channels; beta-adrenergic stimulation; alveolar epithelium; Animal physiology; Djurfysiologi;

    Abstract : Alveolar fluid clearance is driven by active absorption of Na+ across the alveolar epithelium. Development and hormonal regulation of alveolar fluid clearance over 1 hour was studied by instillation of a protein-containing, isosmolar fluid into lungs of fetal, newborn, and adult guinea pigs.

  5. 5. Short- and long-term effects of long-chain free fatty acids on pancreatic α- and β-cell function

    Author : Charlotta Olofsson; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetologi; sekretion; Endokrinologi; diabetology; secreting systems; Endocrinology; type-2 diabetes.; intracellular free Ca2 ; exocytosis; Free fatty acids; pancreatic α- and β-cells;

    Abstract : We have investigated the in vitro effects of long-chain free fatty acids (FFAs) on mouse pancreatic α- and β-cells by a combination of electrophysiological recordings, intracellular Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) microfluorimetry and hormone release measurements. Acute addition of the saturated FFA palmitate to intact islets doubled insulin as well as glucagon secretion in the presence of 1 or 15 mM glucose and the FFA remained capable of enhancing release of both hormones in islets depolarised with high K+ in the presence of the KATP channel opener diazoxide, indicating that alterations of ATP sensitive potassium (KATP) channel activity is not part of the effect.
