  1. 1. Lung Emphysema & Cardiac Function

    Author : Kirsten Jörgensen; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; emphysema; hemodynamics; ventricular end-diastolic volumes; lung volume reduction; ventricular function; transoesophageal echocardiography; magnetic resonance imaging; diastole; simendan; hypertrophy;

    Abstract : Patients with severe lung emphysema have poor quality of life because of impaired lung function and reduced exercise tolerance. Concomitant heart disease in severe emphysema is well recognised. The prevailing view is that mainly the right side of the heart is involved, while the issue of left ventricular (LV) involvement is less studied. READ MORE

  2. 2. NHBD Lung Transplantation

    University dissertation from Per Wierup

    Author : Per Wierup; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; Surgery; rat; pig; edema formation; lung preservation; bronchial healing; gas exchange; lung evaluation; Lung transplantation; non-heart-beating donor NHBD ;

    Abstract : The waiting list for lung transplantations world-wide is steadily growing. So, the use of lungs from non-heart-beating donors (NHBD) needs to be addressed. Hence, the aim of this thesis was to evaluate, in realistic animal models, the new donor organ concept: NHBD transplantation. READ MORE

    Abstract : From being a rare disease in the early 1900s, lung cancer is today the most common forms of cancer worldwide. This development is due to the gradual uptake of cigarette smoking in different populations and birth cohorts during the past 75 years. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inflammatory Markers, Respiratory Diseases, Lung Function and Associated Gender Differences

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Inga Sif Ólafsdóttir; Christer Janson; Anders Blomberg; [2011]

    Abstract : Systemic inflammation is associated with impaired lung function. Inflammation is part of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but the local and systemic inflammatory pattern differs. READ MORE

  5. 5. Physiotherapy and physical activity in patients undergoing cardiac or lung cancer surgery

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro University

    Author : Marcus Jonsson; Elisabeth Westerdahl; Anita Hurtig-Wennlöf; Anders Ahlsson; Maria Hagströmer; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiotherapy; Physical Activity; Cardiac surgery; Lung Cancer; Randomized Controlled Trial; Thoracic surgery; Physical Function; Lung Function;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide. Cardiac surgery is performed to improve prognosis, relieve symptoms and increase functional capacity in patients with cardiac disease. Postoperative pulmonary complications are common after cardiac surgery and a reduced lung function can persist a long time after surgery. READ MORE
