  4. 4. Nanotechnology for hydrometallurgy : extraction and separation of rare earth elements by hybrid nanoadsorbents

    Author : Elizabeth Polido Legaria; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Rare Earth Elements (REE) are a group of 17 chemically similar metals that have gained an increasing importance over the past decades, due to their unique properties that make them crucial for many applications, especially in high-tech products. The term “rare” is rather historical than descriptive, since they are quite abundant in the Earth’s crust. READ MORE

  5. 5. Patients with worsening chronic heart failure ? Symptoms and aspects of care. A Descriptive and Interventional study

    Author : Harshida Patel; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Chronic heart failure; Deterioration; Signs and symptoms; Psychomeric properties; Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire; Quality-adjusted life years; Cost-utility analysis; emotional distress; Health care costs;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis are to (1) explore the factors related to seeking care (Paper I), (2) describe the association between fatigue and selected symptoms (Paper II), (3) validate a method to detect the symptoms (Paper III) and (4) evaluate home care with respect to health-related quality of life (HRQL), medical safety, and cost-effectiveness in patients with worsening chronic heart failure (CHF) (Paper IV). All studies utilise data on patients with worsened CHF who sought care at the emergency department or heart failure clinic. READ MORE
