  1. 1. On diagnostic procedures in pulmonary embolism

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Mårten Söderberg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CTPA; D-dimer; deep venous thrombosis; pre-test probability score; pulmonary arteriography; pulmonary embolism; venous thromboembolism; von Willebrand factor antigen; Wells score.;

    Abstract : Pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) are two entities of venous thromboembolism (VTE). PE is a common cause of mortality and morbidity. The symptoms and signs of PE are difficult to interpret, and the diagnosis is difficult to establish. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nitric Oxide in Experimental Pulmonary Embolism

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Kristofer F Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is an important modulator of the pulmonary circulation both at basal state and in pulmonary hypertension. Low levels of NO are detectable in exhaled gas which is believed to mirror pulmonary NO formation and elimination. READ MORE

  3. 3. Right ventricular function in pulmonary embolism

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Riikka Rydman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction are known to be at risk of in-hospital clinical worsening and PE-related mortality. Even in patients with a preserved systemic arterial pressure, the RV dysfunction indicates a higher risk, thus affecting the patients’ level of care and the therapeutic approach. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gas Embolism in Laparoscopic Liver Surgery

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Diddi Fors; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gas embolism; laparoscopic liver; CVP; PEEP; high frequency jet ventilation; cardiopulmonary physiology; carbon dioxide; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård;

    Abstract : Laparoscopic liver surgery is complicated due to the structure of this organ with open sinusoids. A serious disadvantage is the risk of gas embolism (GE) due to CO2 pneumoperitoneum. CO2 can enter the vascular system through a wounded vein. A common opinion is that gas fluxes along a pressure gradient, e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tomographic ventilation-perfusion lung scintigraphy in cardiopulmonary disease

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Physiology, Lund University

    Author : Jonas Jögi; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Technegas; Ventilation-Perfusion Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography; Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; Heart failure; Pulmonary embolism;

    Abstract : Respiration relies, among other things, on the balance between regional ventilation and perfusion in the lungs. There are many cardiopulmonary diseases, such as pulmonary embolism (PE), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and left heart failure (LHF), which can affect respiration negatively. READ MORE
