  2. 2. Microbial biofilms on peritoneal dialysis catheters

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Odontology, Department of Oral Biology

    Author : Maria Pihl; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peritoneal dialysis; Biofilm;

    Abstract : Då njurarna slutar fungera produceras ingen urin, och avfallsprodukterna stannar kvar i blodet. Detta tillstånd kallas uremi (”urin i blodet”) och leder till döden om det inte behandlas. Det finns två artificiella sätt att rena blodet på, hemodialys och peritonealdialys. READ MORE

  3. 3. Haemodialysis Treatment Monitored On-line by Ultra Violet Absorbance

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Fredrik Uhlin; Lars-Göran Lindberg; Martin Magnusson; Bernd Stegmayr; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dialysis; Hemodialysis; Proteins; Metabolism; Renal dialysis; Ultraviolet spectrophotometry; Urea; Uremia; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Kidney diseases; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Njursjukdomar;

    Abstract : This thesis describes and evaluates an optical method utilizing ultra violet (UV) absorbance for on-line monitoring of haemodialysis treatment. Increased efficiency of haemodialysis treatment is considered to correlate to decreased morbidity and mortality when urea clearance (Kt/V) is elevated. READ MORE

  4. 4. On repetitive control

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Gunnar Hillerström; [1994]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Reglerteknik; Control Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis will concern control systems ability to enhance performance by repeating, while maintaining a stable and sufficiently fast closed loop performance. Iterative techniques can be divided into repetitive and learning control. READ MORE

  5. 5. Oxidative stress and inflammation as a response to glucose exposure and dialysis

    University dissertation from Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Author : Anna Bryland; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glucose; glucose degradation products; dialysis; diabetes; oxidative stress; inflammation; endothelial dysfunction;

    Abstract : Abstract: The main player of this thesis is glucose, both on a cellular level and with a clinical approach. Too much or wrongly handled glucose contributes to increased inflammation and oxidative stress, which is reinforced by the negative influences of uraemia and dialysis treatment. READ MORE
