    Abstract : Background.  Sepsis is a syndrome associated with high mortality rates, substantial morbidity and high costs of care. The incidents of sepsis is reported to be high and controversy exists whether gender affect severity or outcome. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sepsis - an ED perspective. Sepsis Alert & Biomarkers

    Author : Mari Rosenqvist; Kardiovaskulär forskning - hypertoni; []

    Abstract : Background: Sepsis, the life-threatening organ dysfunction due to dysregulated host response to an infection, is a medical emergency. Early diagnosis and treatment are important factors to prevent mortality and morbidity. However, sepsis can be diffuse and difficult to interpret. READ MORE

  3. 3. On sepsis - epidemiology, prediction and diagnostics

    Author : Lisa Mellhammar; Infektionsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sepsis; Epidemiologi; Early Warning Score; Bacteremia;

    Abstract : The overall aims of this thesis were to improve prediction, diagnostics and knowledge on epidemiology of sepsis. In paper I, we developed and evaluated an integrated platform for rapid analysis of sepsis-causing organisms directly from blood samples. READ MORE

  4. 4. Aspects on sepsis : treatment and markers

    Author : Anna Gustafsson; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : antimicrobial peptides; cytokines; lipoteichoic acid; lipopolysaccharide; soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor; sepsis;

    Abstract : Sepsis is one of the greatest challenges in critical care medicine today, while the treatment of sepsis and evaluation of its severity is complicated. The first part of this thesis presents two approaches on the use of antimicrobial peptides in sepsis treatment, relying on both soluble and immobilized peptides. READ MORE

  5. 5. Nitric oxide in experimental sepsis

    Author : Peter Dahm; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intensive care; Nitric oxide; Sepsis; NO inhalation; Endotoxin; Acute lung injury; ARDS; Nitric oxide synthase; L-NMMA; L-NAME; Anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology; Pigs; intensivvård;

    Abstract : Nitric oxide (NO) is important in the control of blood pressure and organ perfusion. In septic shock, NO produced by inducible NO-synthase (NOS) has been claimed to mediate pathological vasodilation and cell injury, while NO produced by constitutive NOS may be protective in counteracting hypoperfusion and organ injury.
