  1. 1. Comatose patients in the non-traumatic emergency room : clinical findings, etiologies and prognosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Sune Forsberg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Coma;

    Abstract : A reduced level of consciousness is an acute and life threatening condition that requires a rapid and structured management in order to maintain life and brain function. Unconscious patients admitted to the non-traumatic emergency room thus present a major challenge to physicians. The scientific knowledge in the field is limited. READ MORE

    Abstract : Here I study the “plasma interactions with icy bodies in the solar system”, that is, my quest to understand the fundamental processes that govern such interactions. By using numerical modelling combined with in situ observations, one can infer the internal structure of icy bodies and their plasma environments. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tryptophan-related Neurotransmission in the Brain: Disturbances Associated with Experimental Hepatic Encephalopathy

    University dissertation from Divison of Clinical Chemistry and Pharmacology

    Author : Peter B F Bergqvist; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tetrodotoxin; serotonin; release; rat; quinolinic acid; potassium; chloroamphetamine; noradrenaline; neurotransmission; microdialysis; hepatic encephalopathy; fenfluramine; drug safety; dopamine; coma; citalopram; ammonia; calcium; brain; tryptophan; Pharmacological sciences; pharmacognosy; pharmacy; toxicology; Farmakologi; farmakognosi; farmaci; toxikologi;

    Abstract : In the present study, L-tryptophan (TRP)-related disturbances in the brain in experimental hepatic encephalopathy (HE) were investigated. The endogenous NMDA-receptor agonist and L-TRP metabolite quinolinic acid (QUIN) has been suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of HE. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gas Production in Distant Comets

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marcus Gunnarsson; F Peter Schloerb; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astronomy; Comets; Radio Astronomy; Molecular Spectroscopy; Coma Models; Astronomi; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Astronomy and astrophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Astronomi och astrofysik; astronomi; Astronomy;

    Abstract : Molecular spectroscopy at radio wavelengths is a tool well suited for studying the composition and outgassing kinematics of cometary comae. This is particularly true for distant comets, i.e. comets at heliocentric distances greater than a few AU, where the excitation of molecules is inefficient other than for rotational energy levels.
