  1. 1. Clinical applications of acoustophoresis in blood based diagnostics

    Author : Klara Petersson; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acoustophoresis; Acoustofluidics; Ultrasound; Microfluidics; Blood; Blood Separation; Blood plasma; Lab-on-a-chip; Point-of-care; Blood diagnostics;

    Abstract : In this thesis, acoustofluidics has been used to process blood samples as a sample preparation step prior to biomarker detection. This is often required as the large amount of blood cells otherwise can interfere with the detection method. Acoustofluidics means moving particles or cells with acoustic forces within microfluidic channels. READ MORE

  2. 2. Acoustofluidic preparation of whole blood components

    Author : Anke Urbansky; NanoLund: Center for Nanoscience; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acoustophoresis; ultrasound; microfluidics; cell separation; blood; blood fractionation;

    Abstract : Whole blood is rich in information about the physical state of an individual and is routinely used in a variety of clinical and research applications. In this thesis, the use of a microfluidic technique called acoustophoresis for separation of different blood components is explored. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Force of Blood : Epidemiological studies of blood pressure in stroke, atrial fibrillation and primary care

    Author : Johan-Emil Bager; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; blood pressure; hypertension; stroke; myocardial infarction; atrial fibrillation; anticoagulants; LDL cholesterol; primary health care;

    Abstract : Aim: The overarching aim of this thesis was to investigate the prevalence, temporal trends and associations to cardiovascular outcomes of blood pressure levels in patients in Västra Götaland. Methods and findings: In Study I, Cox regression analysis was used to investigate associations between blood pressure and mortality in 799 patients with acute ischemic stroke who were identified in the quality register of a stroke ward at Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

  5. 5. Blood exposure in health care : health care workers' and patients' experiences

    Author : Ulla-Britt Lymer; Barbro Isaksson; Bengt Richt; Vivi-Anne Sundquist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Blood-exposure; needle-stick; compliance; universal precautions; balancing; quaIity care; nursing; patients conceptions; grounded theory; phenomenography; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; blood-exposure; quality care;

    Abstract : The general aim of this thesis was to describe and analyse health care workers' blood-exposure incidents, protective measures, and the motives behind decision making about risks and protective measures. The aim was also to procure knowledge about patients' conceptions about their care, and if precautions taken by the health care workers were included in quaiity care. READ MORE
