  1. 11. On the diagnosis and treatment of upper urinary tract stones

    Author : Klas Lindqvist; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; renal stone; ureteric stone; ESWL; ureteroscopy; morbidity; questionnaire; computed tomography; urography;

    Abstract : Aims: Papers I&II: To compare treatment outcome for renal stones treated with different ESWL-machines and treatment results of ESWL and ureteroscopy (URS) for ureteric stones. Paper III: To investigate the morbidity and incidence of acute renal colic and the proportion of patients with absolute and relative indications for immediate radiological examination. READ MORE

  2. 12. To See or Not to See A Study on Capillary Refill

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Rani Toll; Chris D Anderson; Daniel Wilhelms; Joakim Henricson; Gert Nilsson; David Schriger; [2020]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Background: Assessment of the critically ill is traditionally based on vital signs (blood pressure, pulse, respiratory rate, temperature and level of consciousness). Altered vital signs are, however, late indicators of deranged hemodynamics pointing to a need for additional, more sensitive markers of circulatory compromise. READ MORE

  3. 13. Epidemiology of heart failure and feasibility of home care in patients with worsening chronic heart failure

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Masoud Shafazand; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chronic heart failure; mortality; deterioration; hospitalisation; gender; home care; quality-adjusted life years; emergency care; health care costs; ischaemic; non-ischaemic; health-related quality of life; conventional care; acute myocardial infarction; coronary heart disease; heart failure;

    Abstract : Aim: To investigate gender-specific trends in long-term mortality in patients hospitalised for ischaemic and non-ischaemic heart failure (HF) and explore temporal trends in the risk of HF complicating acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Another aim is to characterise patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) that seek an emergency department (ED) because of their deteriorating condition and evaluate the feasibility of home care (HC) in comparison with conventional care (CC) in patients with worsening CHF.

  4. 14. Studies on Heparin Binding protein in bacterial infections

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Adam Linder; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Infectious diseases remain a major health problem, where sepsis and other severe bacterial infections are common causes of morbidity and mortality, and are associated with high costs for the community. The importance of early and appropriate treatment of sepsis and severe bacterial infections has been underlined by many and since sepsis is more prevalent and has a higher mortality rate than for instance acute myocardial infarction, there is a need for improvement.

  5. 15. The Fight on the Flights : Emergency evacuations – human physiological performance, leg muscle activity and gait biomechanics during exhaustive stair and slope ascent

    University dissertation from Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology, Department of Design Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Amitava Halder; [2020-04-14]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Stair climbing evacuation; Physical work capacity; Physiological constraints; Endurance; Energy expenditure; Oxygen consumption; Electromyography; Muscle fatigue; Incline gait biomechanics; Ground reaction forces; Required coefficient of friction;

    Abstract : Physical exhaustion can constrain stair ascending capacity during emergency evacuation. The overall aim of this research was to explore and compare stair ascending capacities and physiological limitations when using two different modes: 1) self-preferred pace on three different public stairways, and 2) four machine-controlled paces on a stair machine corresponding to different percentages of maximal aerobic capacity (V̇O2max).
