  1. 1. Transesophageal Echocardiography in Patients Undergoing Elective Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ingrid Palmgren; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anaesthesiology and intensive care; transesophageal echocardiography; low-dose dobutamine; viability; coronary artery bypass; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; MEDICINE Surgery Anaesthetics and intensive care; MEDICIN Kirurgi Anestesiologi och intensivvård; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) has become a useful tool in monitoring the heart in patients during open-heart surgery. This study was undertaken to evaluate whether it is feasible to use TEE to assess left ventricular myocardial viability in anesthetized patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).

  2. 2. Cardiovascular response to hyperoxemia, hemodilution and burns a clinical and experimental study

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicinsk teknik

    Author : Zoltan Bak; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anesthesia; general; Burns; Echocardiography; transesophageal; Hemodilution; emodynamic processes; Hyperoxia; MEDICINE Surgery Anaesthetics and intensive care Intensive care; MEDICIN Kirurgi Anestesiologi och intensivvård Intensivvård;

    Abstract : The last decades less invasive monitoring and analytical tools have been developed for the evaluation of myocardial mechanics in clinical praxis. In critical care, these are longed-for complements to pulmonary artery catheter monitoring, additionally offering previously inaccessible information. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Role of Transesophageal Echocardiography in Clinical Decision-Making in Patients with Stroke or Atrial Fibrillation

    University dissertation from Cardiology

    Author : Anders Roijer; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system; stroke; cardioversion; Transesophageal echocardiography; embolic sources; atrial fibrillation;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Ekokardiografisk undersökning av hjärtat utvecklades i Lund i början av 1950 talet av kardiologen Inge Edler tillsammans med fysikern Helmuth Hertz och har under de första 30 åren huvudsakligen utförts via bröstkorgsväggen så kallat transthorakalt ultraljud. Under 1980 talet utvecklades tekniken och man fick instrument som via matstrupen kunde utföra en ekokardiografisk undersökning av hjärtat så kallat transesofagalt ultraljud som inte har de begränsningar som transthorakal ekokardiogarfi har.

  4. 4. Ultrasound evaluation of atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular sources of cerebral embolism

    University dissertation from Cardiology

    Author : Robert Wetterholm; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stroke; atherosclerosis; aorta; echocardiography; ultrasound; IMT; MES; WHHL;

    Abstract : The search for embolic sources has high priority in patients presenting with suspected cerebral embolism. Non-invasive cardiovascular ultrasound is frequently used to reveal the presence of carotid stenosis and cardiac disorders with embolic potential. READ MORE

  5. 5. Diagnosis of interatrial shunts and the influence of patent foramen ovale on oxygen desaturation in obstructive sleep apnea

    University dissertation from Cardiology

    Author : Magnus C Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patent foramen ovale; atrial septal defect; obstructive sleep apnea; contrast transesophageal echocardiography; percutaneous closure;

    Abstract : Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is found in 27% of the population and although mostly asymptomatic, PFO has been associated with e.g. cryptogenic stroke and, rarely, also with oxygen desaturation. PFO and atrial septal defects may nowadays be closed percutaneously without open heart surgery. READ MORE
