    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Airway obstruction; Acute lung injury; Acute respiratory distress syndrome; Attenuation; Computed tomography; End-expiratory lung volume; Functional residual capacity; Gas dilution; Hounsfield unit; Lung volume; Oleic acid; Recruitment; Time constant;

    Abstract : Respiratory failure due to acute lung injury (ALI) of diffuse inflammatory origin is a major cause of respiratory failure treated in intensive care units. In ALI, FRC is reduced by various mechanisms associated with hypoxemia and consolidation of the lung. READ MORE

  3. 3. Haemodynamic and ventilatory effects of laparoscopic surgery

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Lena Andersson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Laparoscopy; C02 pneumoperitoneum; indicator- dilution technique; central haemodynamics; cardiac output; central blood volume; venous occlusion plethysmography; catecholamines; multiple inert gas technique; shunt; abdominal wall lift; intrathoracic pressure; ventilation-perfusion matching; atelectasis; spiral computed tomography.;

    Abstract : Background: It has been shown repeatedly that the establishment of pneumoperitoneum (PP) is associated with increased cardiac filling pressures, as well as increased blood pressure and systemic vascular resistance. Patients without heart or lung disease can compensate for these effects of PP, but cardiopulmonary compromised patients may develop cardiac failure during PP. READ MORE

  4. 4. Splanchnic circulation in cardiac surgery

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiopulmonary bypass dopamine dopexamine echocardiography ethanol; heart surgery indocyanine green intramucosal pHi splanchnic circulationMichael Gårdebäck; 1996;

    Abstract : The studies addressed different techniques of monitoring hepatic and splanchnic blood flow(SBF) during open heart surgery. Calculations of gastric mucosal pH (pHi) using tonometrywas performed in 72 patients, and the effect of dopaminergic stimulation on pH1 was studiedin 33 patients. READ MORE

  5. 5. Skin circulation measured by fluorescein flowmetry

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Eduardo Patricio Proaño Romero; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Skin circulation;

    Abstract : Fluorescein flowmetry (FF) is an indicator dilution technique using sodium fluorescein as an indicator. If the tissue is illuminated with U-V light or blue light, after a bolus injection of the dye, fluorescence is seen in the tissue, and can be measured either photographically or by the video technique.
