  1. 1. Hypnosis Monitoring during general anaesthesia. : With focus on awareness

    Author : Andreas Ekman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Hypnosis monitoring; electroencephalogram; BIS; AAI; neuromuscular block;

    Abstract : p>An objective measure of the hypnotic component of general anaesthesia has been sought for decades. The electroencephalogram (EEG) was early recognized as a possible useful intraoperative monitor when the effects of anaesthetic drugs on human EEG recordings were noted. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies on ventilatory function in chronic neuromuscular disorders

    Author : Jan Weinberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ventilatory dysfunction; neuromuscular disorders; diaphragm; electromyogram; power spectrum; blood gas; ventilatory mechanics; sleep; polysomnography;

    Abstract : Ventilatory dysfunction is common in neuromuscular disorders (NMD). The present studies aimed at evaluating and developing methods for diagnosis of ventilatory function in NMD. Methods included were diaphragmatic EMG (EMGdi), blood gas monitoring assessed at rest and during exercise and nocturnal respiratory and sleep parameters. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bilateral kinetic, kinematic, neuromechanical, and muscle-tendon properties of habitual runners

    Author : Tiago Canal Jacques; Anton Arndt; Rodrigo Bini; John Rasmussen; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []

    Abstract : Achilles tendon overuse-related injuries are a frequent problem to habitual runners. Such injuries occur more often unilaterally and its etiology is associated to overloading of the tendon tissue. Inter-limb differences during running are a possible cause for overload due to eventual differences in the mechanical loading provided to each limb. READ MORE

  4. 4. Non-invasive measurement of skeletal muscle blood flow using by photoplethysmography. Experimental studies on the human leg

    Author : Qiuxia Zhang; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; photoplethysmography; skeletal muscle blood flow; perfusion pressure; intramuscular pressure; venous obstruction; muscle exercise; non-invasive; limb elevation; vibration exposure; hyperaemia; foot pump.;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to validate a new non-invasive photoplethysmography (PPG) method for measuring relative changes in local muscle blood flow (MBF) in the human leg. Experimental conditions expected to impede or increase local MBF were used to test responsiveness of the PPG. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human motion prediction using wearable sensors and machine Learning

    Author : Binbin Su; Elena M. Gutierrez-Farewik; Christian Smith; Neil Cronin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wearable sensors; gait segmentation; lower limb angular velocity; machine learning; deep learning; reinforcement learning; Engineering Mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : Accurately measuring and predicting human movement is important in many contexts, such as in rehabilitation and the design of assistive devices. Thanks to the development and availability of a wide variety of sensors, scientists study human movement in many settings and capture characteristic properties unique to individuals as well as to larger study populations.
