  1. 1. Protective Mechanical Ventilation in Inflammatory and Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia Models

    Author : Jesper Sperber; Jan Sjölin; Markus Castegren; Anders Larsson; Anders Larsson; Anders Oldner; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mechanical ventilation; Systemic inflammation; Pneumonia; Ventilator-associated pneumonia; Endotoxin; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care;

    Abstract : Severe infections, trauma or major surgery can each cause a state of systemic inflammation. These causes for systemic inflammation often coexist and complicate each other. Mechanical ventilation is commonly used during major surgical procedures and when respiratory functions are failing in the intensive care setting. READ MORE

  3. 3. PCR detection of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae in pneumonia patients

    Author : Guma M. K. Abdeldaim; Björn Herrmann; Jonas Blomberg; Kristoffer Strålin; Birgitta Henriques; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Lower respiratory tract infections; Pneumonia; Streptococcus pneumoniae; Haemophilus influenzae; real-time PCR;

    Abstract : PCR is a rapid, reproducible method for nucleic acid detection. However, this technology displays significant deficiencies when applied in clinical microbiology. This work’s aim was to improve current diagnostics and provide sensitive and quantitative real-time PCRs. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diagnosing pneumonia in primary care : Aspects of the value of clinical and laboratory findings and the use of chest X-ray

    Author : Anna Moberg; Magnus Falk; Jakob Paues; Sven Göran Fransson; Ronny Gunnarsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : It is important to identify patients with pneumonia because it is potentially a serious disease, often of bacterial origin, that should be treated with antibiotics. It is equally important to identify those with acute bronchitis, a self-limiting disease, that should not be treated with antibiotics. READ MORE

  5. 5. Measurement and evaluation of body temperature : Implications for clinical practice

    Author : Märtha Sund-Levander; Lis Karin Wahren; Ewa Grodzinsky; Karin Axelsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Assessment; body temperature measurement; elderly; evaluation; infection; nursing home; pneumonia; survival; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The general aim was to explore factors influencing the normal variation and measurement of body temperature. Additional aims were to study morbidity, mortality and the clinical presentation of pneumonia and predictors for survival in elderly nursing-home residents. READ MORE
