  1. 1. Sudden Cardiac death in Swedish orienteers

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lars Wesslén; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; sudden cardiac death; orienteers; myocarditis; arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases;

    Abstract : An accumulation of sudden unexpected cardiac deaths (SUCD) occurred in young Swedish orienteers, most of whom were elite athletes. From 1979 to 1992 the incidence in 18 to 34 year old male elite orienteers ranked on the national level the same year as death was calculated to 30 (per 100,000), which represents a 20 to 40 fold increase from the expected rate.

  2. 2. Cardiac morphology and dynamics in Swedish elite orienteers : Evaluation of the right and left ventricle by two-dimensional and doppler echocardiography

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Egil Henriksen; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Echocardiography; sudden unexpected death in young orienteers; right and left ventricular measurements; Doppler echocardiography in athletes; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Physiology; klinisk fysiologi;

    Abstract : Background. Between 1979 and 1992, 16 (15 males and 1 female) sudden unexpected cardiac deaths(SUCD) were reported in Swedish orienteers. Compared with previous reports in young athletes there was a 10- to 100-fold increase in the sudden death rate in young male elite orienteers during this period. The mean age was 25 years (range 18-32 years). READ MORE

  3. 3. Elite sprinters, ice hockey players, orienteers and marathon runners isokinetic leg muscle performance in relation to muscle structure and training

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Christer Johansson; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1987]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Electromyography; endurance; enzyme histocytochemistry; fatigue; ice hockey; isokinetic; muscle contraction; OBLA; orienteering; running;

    Abstract : In male athletes from different sports, isokinetic knee extensor, and in orienteers also plantar flexor peak torque (PT), contractional work (CW) and integrated surface electromyograms (iEMG) were analysed.Single contraction PT, CW and iEMG in sprinters and marathon runners were signi­ficantly correlated to the cross-sectional area (CSA) of m.

  4. 4. Bartonella Infections in Sweden: Clinical Investigations and Molecular Epidemiology

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christian Ehrenborg; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Communicable diseases; Bartonella; clinical studies; molecular epidemiology; Infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Characteristically, in infections that are caused by the zoonotic pathogen Bartonella naturally infected reservoir hosts are asymptomatic, where infected incidental, non-natural, hosts develop symptomatic disease. Cat-scratch disease (CSD) is a well known example. READ MORE

  5. 5. "The gut matters" an interdisciplinary approach to health and gut function in older adults
