  1. 1. Nitric oxide An ally in extracorporeal circulation?

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Vilyam Melki; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Simulated extracorporeal circulation; Inflammation; Nitric oxide; Leukocyte activation; Staphylococcus aureus; Glyceryl trinitrate; Postoperative infection; Thorax Surgery; Thoraxkirurgi;

    Abstract : Many complications associated with heart surgery are due to the negative effects of extracorporeal circulation (ECC). Some of these complications may be attributed to ECC-induced activation of inflammation and coagulation pathways. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nitric oxide in experimental sepsis

    University dissertation from Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, Lund

    Author : Peter Dahm; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intensive care; Nitric oxide; Sepsis; NO inhalation; Endotoxin; Acute lung injury; ARDS; Nitric oxide synthase; L-NMMA; L-NAME; Anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology; Pigs; intensivvård;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Septisk shock (shock utlöst av blodförgiftning) är en potentiellt dödlig komplikation till infektion med bakterier eller andra mikroorganismer. Inte bara de infekterande organismerna i sig, men också de inflammatoriska system och signalsubstanser som aktiveras, orsaker ett generaliserat inflammatoriskt tillstånd. READ MORE

  3. 3. Inhaled Nitric Oxide Therapy : Non-response and Rebound Response

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Luni Chen; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anaesthesiology and intensive care; nitric oxide inhalation; rebound response; non-response; endothelin-1; COX inhibitor; prostaglandin; ARDS; endotoxin; oleic acid; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; MEDICINE Surgery Anaesthetics and intensive care; MEDICIN Kirurgi Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Clinical Physiology; klinisk fysiologi;

    Abstract : Therapeutic inhaled nitric oxide (INO) has proved beneficial in patients with pulmonary hypertension. However, around 30-40% of the patients are non-responders to this therapy, and a life-threatening rebound response may occur during attempts to withdraw INO. READ MORE

  4. 4. Endogenous Nitric Oxide Production and Pulmonary Blood Flow during different experimental lung conditions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Manja Nilsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nitric oxide; pulmonary blood flow; endotoxin; nitric oxide inhalation; endothelin; hypercapnia; acidosis; lavage-induced lung injury; MEDICINE Surgery Anaesthetics and intensive care; MEDICIN Kirurgi Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is an important regulator of pulmonary blood flow and attenuates hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV). Nitric oxide is synthesized enzymatically in a number of tissues, including the lungs, and can also be generated from reduction of nitrite during hypoxia and acidosis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exhaled Nitric Oxide in epidemiological and experimental studies

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Anna-Carin Olin; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nitric oxide; exhaled air; nasal nitric oxide; ozone; pulp-mill; gassings; nitrate; atopy; sensitization; asthma; rhinitis; bronchiolitis;

    Abstract : The overall purpose with this thesis has been to contribute to the assessment of theutility of exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) in epidemiological studies. The specific aims have been toinvestigate whether eNO increases after occupational exposure to high peaks of ozone, or afterexperimental exposure to ozone in ambient concentrations. READ MORE
