  1. 1. Orthogeriatric anaesthesia - studies on the bone cement implantation syndrome, risk prediction and intraoperative haemodynamics

    Author : Fredrik Olsen; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bone cement implantation syndrome; cemented hip hemiarthroplasty; bone cement; Nottingham hip fracture score; cardiac output monitoring; continuous spinal anaesthesia;

    Abstract : The bone cementation implantation syndrome (BCIS), as seen in orthopaedic patients, is characterised by intraoperative hypotension and hypoxia and loss of consciousness around the time of bone cementation. In a retrospective study, the incidence of and risk factors for the BCIS and its impact on mortality during cemented hemiarthroplasty for hip fracture were evaluated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Perioperative effects of systemic or spinal clonidine as adjuvant during spinal anaesthesia

    Author : Igor Dobrydnjov; Torsten Gordh Jr.; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Aim of study: To evaluate the effects of different doses of clonidine administered systemically or spinally in combination with local anaesthetics on sensory and motor block intraoperatively, on pain relief postoperatively, and on the incidence of postoperative alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) in alcohol abusers.Patients and methods: A total 285 patients were included in five studies.

  3. 3. On Surgical Treatment of Aortic Pathology

    Author : Jacob Budtz-Lilly; Kevin Mani; Philip Goodney; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The use of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms has advanced from a premature characterization as a “failed experiment” in early 2000 to the predominant modern method of treatment. Technology has accommodated initial shortcomings, but it has also led to expansions in the treatment of ruptured aneurysms and complex aortic pathologies. READ MORE

  4. 4. The effect of anaesthesia and adrenergic therapy on the distribution and elimination of a crystalloid solution studied by volume kinetic analysis

    Author : Carl-Arne Ewaldsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Intravenous fluid therapy is a mandatory treasure during anaesthesia and surgery. It is sometimes combined with adrenergic therapy to maintain haemodynamic stability. It is of great importance to know how the body handles the distribution of fluid in these circumstances in order to minimize the risk of fluid overload. READ MORE

  5. 5. The electromyographic signal used for control of upper extremity prostheses and for quantification of motor blockade during epidural anaesthesia

    Author : Lennart Philipson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : A contribution of biomedical research engineering has been the development of detection and analysis methods for the electromyographic (EMG) signal and its application to health care problems. The present thesis describes the use of EMG signals for two such applications: Aid in the control of multifunctional upper limb prostheses and for quantification of motor blockade during epidural anaesthesia.
