  1. 1. Assessment of increased upper airway resistance in snorers. Methodological and diagnostic considerations

    University dissertation from Otorhinolaryngology (Lund)

    Author : Sören Berg; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; arousals.; pharyngeal pressure; intrathoracic pressure; hypopnea; respiratory ventilation; oxygenation; Non apneic snorers; upper airway obstruction; Otorhinolaryngology; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen;

    Abstract : Sleep-related partial upper airway obstruction may cause increased morbidity and mortality, but diagnosis and treatment of patients is varying and inconsistent. The present studies were aimed to evaluate presently applied indirect methods for assessing respiratory ventilation and to investigate the value and accuracy in estimating upper airway resistance during sleep by measuring intrathoracic pressure variation with a microchip catheter in the esophagus.

  2. 2. Holocene vegetation dynamics and climate changes in the Torneträsk area, northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Department of Quaternary Geology, Lund University

    Author : Lena Barnekow; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Paleobotanik; palynology; phylogeny; Palaeobotany; northern Sweden; Torneträsk; Abisko; lake-level; radiocarbon dating; forest history; Holocene; tree-line; climate; Vegetation; fylogeni; palynologi; Physical geography; geomorphology; pedology; cartography; climatology; Fysisk geografi; geomorfologi; marklära; kartografi; klimatologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to reconstruct the Holocene vegetation history and the climate changes in a subarctic area. The results are based on pollen and macrofossil records from six lakes in the Torneträsk area. The lakes are situated at altitudes between 370 and 999 m a.s. READ MORE

  3. 3. Automatic analysis of log end face images in the sawmill industry

    University dissertation from ; Centre for Image Analysis, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Kristin Norell; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : At present grading of sawlogs in a sawmill relies on visual inspection wherein a human expert grades a log every few seconds as it passes on a conveyor belt. This tedious and difficult work is prone to substantial inter- and intra-grader variability. READ MORE

  4. 4. Synthesis and Characterization of ZnO Nanostructures

    University dissertation from ; Centre for Image Analysis, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Abstract : One-dimensional ZnO nanostructures have great potential applications in the fields of optoelectronic and sensor devices.  Therefore, it is very important to realize the controllable growth of one-dimensional ZnO nanostructures and investigate their properties. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis and Modelling of Desalination Brines

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Raed Bashitialshaaer; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Modelling.; Field data analysis; Negatively buoyant jet; Experiment; Brine discharge; Desalination; Water supply;

    Abstract : Seawater desalination constitutes an important water supply to the population bordering the Arabian Gulf, the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. The three regions represent about 11.8% of the world land area and the countrieshosted approximately 9% of the world population in 1950 and 2008 and are also projected to do so in 2050. READ MORE
