  2. 2. Aspects on sepsis treatment and markers

    University dissertation from Malmö University. Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Anna Gustafsson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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

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

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Keywords : 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. Nitric oxide in experimental sepsis

    University dissertation from Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, Lund

    Author : Peter Dahm; [1998]
    Keywords : 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.
