  1. 1. Heart rate variability and pacemaker treatment in children with Fontan circulation

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jenny Alenius Dahlqvist; Umeå universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Congenital heart disease; Fontan circulation; heart rate variability; pacemaker; sinus node dysfunction; pediatrik; Pediatrics; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Fontan surgery is performed in children with univentricular heart defects. Arrhythmias are frequent complications, occasionally requiring pacemaker treatment. Previous data regarding indications and risk factors for pacemaker treatment in Fontan patients is limited and conflicting. READ MORE

  2. 2. The pace of innovation : Patterns of innovation in the cardiac pacemaker industry

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Patrik Hidefjäll; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Cardiac Pacemaker; Competition; Competitive Advantage; Defibrillator; Dominant Design; Innovation; Organizational Field; Patterns of Innovation; Technical Change; Technology Cycle; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : The PhD thesis "The Pace of Innovation" addresses the questions how patterns of innovation change over time in an industry, their consequences for competition and how institutional conditions in an industry shape determinants of patterns of innovation. Patterns of innovation mainly refer to how certain regularities in the diversity, types and locus of innovation change in an industry according to a technology and industry life cycle. READ MORE

    Abstract : People suffering from certain types of arrhythmia may benefit from the implantation of a cardiac pacemaker. Pacemakers artificially stimulate the heart by applying short electrical pulses to the cardiac tissue to restore and maintain a steady heart rhythm. By adjusting the pulse delivery rate the heart is stimulated to beat at desired pace. READ MORE

  5. 5. Health-related quality of life in patients with pacemakers. A descriptive and experimental study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Dan Malm; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; caring; elderly; gender; health-related quality of life; intervention; pacemaker population; patient education; self-care.;

    Abstract : The general aim of this thesis was to describe and evaluate the health-relatedquality of life (HRQoL) of patients with pacemakers, as well as to determine theeffects of a nurse-led intervention regarding health-related quality of life in theform of a self-care program for these patients. Descriptive designs were used todescribe (I) quality of life (n=182) as well as (II) HRQoL (n=697) of pacemakerpatients based on a nursing perspective. READ MORE
