  1. 1. Measurement and evaluation of body temperature : Implications for clinical practice

    Author : Märtha Sund-Levander; Lis Karin Wahren; Ewa Grodzinsky; Karin Axelsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Assessment; body temperature measurement; elderly; evaluation; infection; nursing home; pneumonia; survival; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The general aim was to explore factors influencing the normal variation and measurement of body temperature. Additional aims were to study morbidity, mortality and the clinical presentation of pneumonia and predictors for survival in elderly nursing-home residents. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of hand skin temperature : Infrared thermography in combination with cold stress tests

    Author : Katarina Leijon Sundqvist; Niklas Lehto; James Mercer; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cold provocation; rewarming; thermoregulation; dynamic IR thermography; Health Science; Hälsovetenskap;

    Abstract : AbstractSince ancient times, warm or cold skin on the human body has been used as a parameter in evaluating health. Changes in body temperature are attributed to diseases or disorders. The assessment of body temperature is often performed to measure fever by detecting an elevated core temperature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cold exposure and thermal comfort among patients in prehospital emergency care : innovation research in nursing

    Author : Jonas Aléx; Britt-Inger Saveman; Stig Karlsson; Ulf Björnstig; Inggard Lereim; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; thermal comfort; thermal discomfort; cold exposure; cold stress; hypothermia; patients’ experiences; active warming; prehospital emergency care; finger temperature; back temperature; omvårdnadsforskning med medicinsk inriktning; Caring Sciences;

    Abstract : BackgroundPatients’ cold exposure is a neglected problem in prehospital emergency care. Cold stress increases pain and anxiety and contributes to fear and an overall sense of dissatisfaction. When left untreated, cold stress disturbs vital body functions until ultimately reaches hypothermia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tree-rings and climate - Standardization, proxy-development, and Fennoscandian summer temperature history

    Author : Jesper Björklund; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Tree rings; Fennoscandia; summer temperature; maximum latewood density MXD ; blue intensity BI ; standardization;

    Abstract : Instrumental meteorological observation are too short for trying to estimate climate change and variability on multi-decadal and centennial time-scales, and when trying to evaluate the response of the climate system to human influence, such as raised concentrations of green house gases (GHG), altered land-use, black carbon etc. To access information about the climate system predating instrumental observations, reliable proxy records (natural archives) are necessary.

  5. 5. On the measurement of evaporative water loss : methods and clinical applications

    Author : Gert Nilsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The new method for measurement of water loss by evaporation from the skin described in paper I, offers a high degree of accuracy and improved sensitivity in comparison with devices reported previously. Rapid recordings can be made by technically untrained persons both in clinical departments and in the laboratory. READ MORE
