  1. 1. Post-Cardiac Arrest Care : Therapeutic Hypothermia, Patient Outcomes and Relatives’ Experiences

    Author : Ing-Marie Larsson; Sten Rubertsson; Marja-Leena Kristofferzon; Jo Kramer-Johansen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiac arrest; therapeutic hypothermia; prognostication; outcome; quality of life; relatives; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the thesis was to study post-resuscitation care of cardiac arrest (CA) patients with a focus on therapeutic hypothermia treatment, outcomes up to six months post-CA and relatives’ experiences during the hospital stay.In Paper I, the aim was to asses effectiveness of hypothermia treatment with cold, 4°C, intravenous crystalloid infusion combined with ice packs.

  2. 2. Post Cardiac Arrest Care : Evaluation of prognostic tools, Patient outcomes and Relatives’ experiences at 6 months after the event

    Author : Ewa Wallin; Sten Rubertsson; Marja-Leena Kristofferzon; Silvana Naredi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiac arrest; hypothermia; neurological outcome; cerebral oxygenation; MRI; relatives; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the present thesis was to study post-resuscitation care of cardiac arrest (CA) patients treated with target temperature management 33°C with a focus on evaluation of two prognostic tools: variations in cerebral venous saturation and acute magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings on the brain post-CA. An additional aim was to investigate patients’ neurological outcome and relatives’ experiences 6 months after the event. READ MORE

  3. 3. Novel Interventions in Cardiac Arrest : Targeted Temperature Management, Methylene Blue, S-PBN, Amiodarone, Milrinone and Esmolol,  Endothelin and Nitric Oxide In Porcine Resuscitation Models

    Author : Frank Zoerner; Fredrik Lennmyr; Cécile Martijn; Lars Wiklund; Sven Erik Gisvold; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : It is a major clinical problem that survival rates after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest have not markedly improved during the last decades, despite extensive research and the introduction of new interventions. However, recent studies have demonstrated promising treatments such as targeted temperature management (TTM) and methylene blue (MB). READ MORE

  4. 4. ICU prognostication: Time to re-evaluate? Register-based studies on improving prognostication for patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU)

    Author : Peder Andersson; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intensive Care; Critical Care; Mortality; Cerebral Performance Category; Cardiac arrest; Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest; Sepsis; Lactate; Troponin; Neuron-specific enolase; Neurofilament light; Age; Elderly; Prognostication; Prediction; Scoring system; Neural net; Artificial neural network; Deep learning; Artificial intelligence;

    Abstract : Background: ICU prognostication is difficult because of patients’ prior comorbidities and their varied reasons for admission. The model used for ICU prognostication in Sweden is the Simplified Acute Physiology Score 3 (SAPS 3), which uses information gathered within one hour of ICU admission to predict 30-day mortality.

  5. 5. Assessment of the Cerebral Ischemic/Reperfusion Injury after Cardiac Arrest

    Author : Erik Mörtberg; Sten Rubertsson; Eldar Søreide; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intensive care; Intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård;

    Abstract : The cerebral damage after cardiac arrest is thought to arise both from the ischemia during the cardiac arrest but also during reperfusion. It is the degree of cerebral damage which determines the outcome in patients. This thesis focuses on the cerebral damage after cardiac arrest. READ MORE
