  1. 1. Biomarkers in Cardiovascular Dysautonomia: an Emerging Field

    Author : Madeleine Johansson; Kardiovaskulär forskning - hypertoni; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomarkers; Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction; Syncope; Orthostatic hypotension; Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome; Cardiovascular disease; Autonomic dysfunction;

    Abstract : Background: Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction is a multifactorial disorder manifested as orthostatic hypotension (OH) and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). OH has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), and the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood and explored. READ MORE

    Abstract : Although vasovagal syncope (VVS) is a common clinical condition the mechanisms behind VVS remain elusive. Upright posture is the major trigger of VVS and lower limb blood pooling affecting cardiac output has been proposed as a major determinant. The overall aim of this thesis was twofold. READ MORE

  4. 4. Morbidity and mortality in patients with bundle branch block

    Author : Fariborz Tabrizi; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; AV block; Bifascicular block; Congestive heart failure; Bundle branch block; Mortality; Myocardial infarction; Sudden cardiac death; Syncope.;

    Abstract : Background Syncope is a predictor of subsequent high-degree atrioventricular (AV) block in patients with bifascicular block (BFB) but the time relationship between syncope and development of AV block has not been well-studied. Patients with BFB have a significantly higher mortality rate compared with an age and sex matched population. READ MORE

  5. 5. Clinical aspects of device-detected arrhythmias

    Author : Emma Sandgren; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : INTRODUCTION Cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) enable continuous monitoring of the heart rhythm. CIEDs constitute a unique opportunity for detecting arrhythmias, as the duration of cardiac monitoring is of the utmost importance for the detection rate. READ MORE
