  1. 1. Sensor-Based Garments that Enable the Use of Bioimpedance Technology Towards PersonalizedHealthcare Monitoring

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Juan Carlos Marquez Ruiz; Kaj Lindecrantz; Fernando Seoane; Ramon Bragós Bardia; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioimpedance; textrodes; textile electrodes; Impedance Cardiography; Body Composition;

    Abstract : Functional garments for physiological sensing purposes have been utilized in several disciplinesi.e. sports, firefighting, military and medical. In most of the cases textile electrodes (Textrodes)embedded in the garment are employed to monitor vital signs and other physiologicalmeasurements. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Optimization Comparison and Evaluation of Non-invasive Methods

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elena Sciaraffia; Carina Blomström Lundqvist; Giuseppe Boriani; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiac resynchronization therapy; device optimization; left ventricular contractility; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : The general purpose of this thesis was to investigate new cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) optimization techniques and to assess their reliability when compared to invasive measurements of left ventricular contractility (LV dP/dtmax).We first assessed whether cardiac output (CO) measured by trans-thoracic impedance cardiography could correctly identify the optimal interventricular (VV) pacing interval while using invasive measurements of LV dP/dtmax as reference.

  5. 5. Sympathetic neural blockade during regional analgesia : Clinical investigations in man

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Lars-Åke Malmqvist; [1992]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Different opinions exist concerning the extent and intensi-ty of the concomitant sympathetic block during regional blockade, and how to test the completeness of the sympathetic blockade. Studies were performed on 21 volunteers and 162 patients scheduled for surgery of the urogenital area or surgery for varicose v-eins, and chronic pain patients. READ MORE
