  1. 1. Retinal glucose metabolism and blood flow : Effects of photic stimulation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lin Wang; Uppsala universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology and anatomy; blood flow; darkness; flicker; glucose oxidation; glycolysis; lactate; light; nitric oxide; optic nerve; retina; Fysiologi och anatomi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : Retinal glucose metabolism was investigated under different light conditions in cats,pigs and rabbits. Glycolysis and glucose oxidation in the outer and inner parts of theretina were assessed by determining arteriovenous concentration differences foroxygen, glucose and lactate, as well as local blood flow.

  2. 2. Mesentric hemodynamics and effects of angiotensin II during circulatory stress

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mats Laesser; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Renin-angiontensin system; angiotensin II; intestines; hemodynamics; perfusion; hemorrhage; hypovolemia; endotoxemia;

    Abstract : Mesenteric hypoperfusion and ischemia is considered to be deleterious to the intestinal mucosal barrier function and it is suggested that the renin-angiotensin system plays a pivotal role in the regulation of mesenteric perfusion.The present thesis examines the effects of the specific AT1 receptor blocker candesartan on mesenteric hemodynamics during acute hypovolemia and endotoxinemia.

  3. 3. Endotracheal Suction a Reopened Problem

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Birgitta Almgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physiology; Mechanical; ventilation; endotracheal; suction; lung; volume; loss; gas; exchange; Fysiologi; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi;

    Abstract : During mechanical ventilation, patients are connected to the ventilator by an endotracheal tube. The tube needs to be cleaned from mucus by suction, which can cause negative effects such as lung collapse, hypoxemia and desaturation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Induced Growth and Precocious Maturation of the Digestive System in Suckling Rats and Pigs after Exposure to Red Kidney Bean Lectin

    University dissertation from Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Däggdjurens mag-tarmkanal genomgår dramatiska strukturella och funktionella förändringar under di-perioden för att anpassa individen för den fasta föda som kommer att bli den huvudsakliga näringskällan efter avvänjningen från modersmjölken. Dessa förändringar följer en ?biologiska klocka? och är således huvudsakligen genetiskt styrda. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cerebral Perfusion and Metabolism during Experimental Extracorporeal Circulation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ove Jonsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cerebral perfusion; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology Experimental brain research; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi Experimentell hjärnforskning; Thoraxkirurgi; Thorax Surgery;

    Abstract : Neurologic injuries are major causes of mortality and morbidity after cardiac surgery. This thesis aimed to investigate cerebral metabolism and perfusion abnormalities in pigs during hypothermic circulatory arrest, selective antegrade cerebral perfusion (SACP) and extracorporeal circulation following progressive venous stasis.
