  1. 1. Pulmonary hypertension. Clinical and pathophysiological studies

    Author : Nedim Selimovic; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pulmonary hypertension; Echocardiography; Right heart catheterisation; Pulmonary vascular resistance; Pulmonary function tests; Lung transplantation; Mortality on the waiting list; Vascular remodelling; Growth substances; Inflammation; Endothelin;

    Abstract : Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a common abnormality, most often associated with various cardiopulmonary diseases. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating pulmonary vascular disease characterised by the proliferation of endothelial, smooth-muscle cells and fibroblasts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hemodynamic Effects of Lung Function Optimization in Experimental Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Arnoldo Santos; Anders Larsson; Fernando Suarez-Sipmann; John Marini; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute respiratory distress syndrome; Lung protective ventilation; Mechanical ventilation; Open lung approach; Pulmonary heart disease; Pulmonary vascular mechanics; Pulmonary vascular dysfunction; Pulse wave analysis; Right ventricular dysfunction; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a severe pulmonary inflammation affecting thousands of patients every year in Sweden and has a mortality of 30-50%. Mechanical ventilation (MV) is usually necessary, but could per se augment the inflammation and contribute to mortality. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lung Transplantation: Clinical and experimental studies

    University dissertation from Department of Respiratory Medicine and Allergology, Lund University

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Respiratory system; Follow up Studies; Vascular Resistance; Intensive Care; Induced; Hypothermia; Swine; Extracorporeal Circulation; Lung Transplantation; Organ Preservation; Andningsorganen; Immunology; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : During the past 15 years lung transplantation has been established as a therapeutic option for patients with end-stage pulmonary disease. The results have improved over time and some transplantation centers now show 1-year survival rates above 80%. READ MORE

  4. 4. Surgically corrected univentricular hearts. Anatomical, haemodynamic and functional status at a long-term follow-up

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Eva Strömvall-Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cavopulmonary connections; univentricular hearts; long-term follow-up; pulmonary; arteriovenous malformations; lung volumes; cardiac output; pulmonary gas exchange and maximal; exercise studies;

    Abstract : The Fontan operation and its modifications are applied to a large spectrum of congenital heart defectswith univentricular physiology. The Fontan circulation is characterised by a reduced, non-pulsatilepulmonary blood flow and the elevated central venous pressure is the main driving force for thepulmonary blood flow. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pancreatitis-Associated Pulmonary Injury

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University

    Author : Xia Zhao; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; orthopaedics; Surgery; inflammatory mediators; protein kinase C; leukocytes; acute lung injury; abdominal sepsis; acute pancreatitis; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : In acute pancreatitis (AP), lung injury is an early occuring and important part of the multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. The mechanisms underlying the development of lung injury though still largely remains unclear. READ MORE
