  1. 1. Point of care microfluidic tool development for resource limited settings

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Indradumna Banerjee; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Blood; control; cell separation; centrifugal microfluidics; diagnostics; elasto-inertial; hematocrit level; microfluidics; neonatal diagnostics; nucleic acid quantification; point of care; particle focusing; resource limited settings.; Biotechnology; Bioteknologi;

    Abstract : The development of point of care diagnostics using recent advances in microfluidics have the potential to transform health care in several ways, especially in resource limited settings with limited access to advanced health care infrastructure. However, translating a point of care device to reality is often a challenging task because of the complexities involved in integrating a number of diverse engineering concepts into an easy to use, accurate and portable device.

  2. 2. Spinal Cord Processing of Sensory Information: Spatial Organization and Adaptive Mechanisms

    University dissertation from Department of Physiological Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Anders Levinsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; transplantatioin; pain; sensorimotor; plasticity; reflex; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Nervsignaler som förmedlar känsel från huden och kommandon till kroppsmuskulaturen passerar genom ryggmärgen eller dess motsvarighet i hjärnstammen. Kunskap om hur ryggmärgens nervkretsar är uppbyggda och hur de bearbetar nervsignaler är därför av fundamental betydelse för att kunna förstå och behandla exempelvis smärta och ryggmärgskador.

  3. 3. Congenital heart block : a study of diagnostics, pathogenesis, prognosis and treatment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Women's and Children's Health

    Author : Håkan Eliasson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Congenital heart block (CHB) is a rare condition with considerable mortality. In most patients the disease is associated with fetal exposure to maternal SSA-Ro and/or SSB-La autoantibodies (AB) and develops in fetal life. Accuracy in fetal diagnostics is important to distinguish benign from life threatening conditions. READ MORE

    Abstract : Relapsing fever (RF) is a disease caused by tick- or louse-transmitted bacteria of the genus Borrelia. It occurs worldwide but is most common in Africa where it is one of the most prevalent bacterial diseases. The main manifestation is a recurring fever which coincides with massive numbers of bacteria in the blood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Integrated community case management of malaria and pneumonia in eastern Uganda : care-seeking, adherence, and community health worker performance

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Public Health Sciences
