  1. 1. Neonatal resuscitation - studies in piglets

    University dissertation from Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care

    Author : Rikard Linnér; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Newborn resuscitation; birth asphyxia; cerebral oxygenation; adrenaline; noradrenaline; severe hypoventilation; surfactant; nebulisation; vibrating mesh nebuliser. CPAP; lung deposition; lung distribution.;

    Abstract : Background and aims: “It’s best to start with air” states the current guidelines on the resuscitation of babies at birth. In a piglet model mimicking severe neonatal asphyxia and circulatory arrest, different aspects of resuscitation were investigated (studies I-III). READ MORE

  2. 2. Consequences of Arterial Switch Operation in Children Born with Transposition of the Great Arteries

    University dissertation from Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care

    Author : Cecilia Falkenberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Transpositon of the great arteries; arterial switch operation; autonomous nerves system; norepinephrine; heart rate variability; cardiopulmonary bypass; piglets;

    Abstract : Abstract Background: The introduction of the arterial switch operation (ASO) made it the procedure of choice for surgical correction of transposition of the great arteries. A majority of the sympathetic nerves innervate the heart alongside the great vessels; these are therefore likely to be damaged during the surgical procedure; imposing new challenges and questions that need to be addressed.

  3. 3. Factors Influencing Phytate Degradation in Piglets. Feed phytate behaviour and degradation by microbial phytases

    University dissertation from Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care

    Author : Katrine Pontoppidan; [2009]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pigs; in vitro digestion; P. lycii; inositol phosphates; phytate; phytase;

    Abstract : Phytate, the main storage form of phosphorus (P) in plant feedstuffs, is indigestible for monogastric animals, and phytases are therefore used as feed additives to increase the digestibility of phytate-P and limit the inclusion of inorganic P. However, new and improved phytases are needed to obtain better phytate digestibility and allow for lower inclusions of inorganic P. READ MORE

  4. 4. Strategic use of straw at farrowing : effects on behaviour, health and production in sows and piglets

    University dissertation from ; Department of Animal Environment and Health, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

    Author : Rebecka Westin; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2014]

    Abstract : According to EU-regulations, sows should be provided with suitable manipulable material, this in order to meet their behavioural needs. "Strategic use of straw at farrowing" means that loose housed sows are provided with 15-20 kg of chopped straw once at 2 days prior to the calculated date of farrowing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Influence of probiotics and other external factors on intestinal biochemical microflora-associated characteristics : Studies in vitro and in vivo in gnotobiotic mice and in pigs

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Maria E Cardona G; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastrointestinal microflora germ-free mice; lactic acid bacteria; microflora- associated characteristics; piglets; probiotics.;

    Abstract : The benefit of harboring a balanced intestinal microflora is well recognized. Therefore, in order to 'maintain or improve the intestinal flora, the use of microbial species as feed supplements, i.e. probiotics, has rapidly increased. READ MORE
