  1. 1. Cellular electrophysiological modulation in chronic atrial fibrillation - Studies with magnesium and GIK solution

    Författare :Max Ingemansson; Lunds universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Action potential duration; Atrial cycle length; Atrial remodelling; Autonomic nervous system; AV-nodal; Conduction velocity; GIK; Magnesium; Resting membrane potential.; Refractoriness; Atrial fibrillation; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : Although chronic atrial fibrillation (CAF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia in man, the mechanisms involved in its progressive course are still not fully understood. Recent studies have verified an electrical remodelling of the atrial myocardium that may be responsible for the electrophysiological disturbances known to exist in the fibrillating atria. LÄS MER

  2. 2. ATRIOVENTRICULAR CONDUCTION in Patients with Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardias

    Författare :Shaowen Liu; Kardiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns retrospective and prospective studies of the atrioventricular (AV) conduction properties in patients with cardiac arrhythmias. The objectives of the retrospective studies were to further delineate the sex distribution in patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) and AV nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) and to determine the underlying mechanisms of the differences in sex distribution, to investigate the relationship between the conduction properties of normal and accessory AV pathway, and to evaluate their conduction properties with respect to accessory pathway location.

  3. 3. Cardiac electrophysiologic effects of mental stress

    Författare :Per Insulander; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Mental stress may trigger serious arrhythmias. Mental stress tests cause significant increases in heart rate, blood pressure and cardiac output. When beta-adrenergic inhibition is considered for secondary antiarrhythmic prophylaxis beta1 selective agents are often preferred because of less adverse reactions. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Novel Approaches to ECG-Based Modeling and Characterization of Atrial Fibrillation

    Författare :Frida Sandberg; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HMM; ECG; Biomedical Signal Processing; Time-Frequency Analysis; Atrial Fibrillation; Sample Entropy; AV modeling;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with signal processing algorithms for analysis of the electrocardiogram (ECG) during atrial fibrillation (AF). Such analysis can be used for diagnosing patients, and for monitoring and predicting their response to various treatment. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Hyperthyroidism and its impact on cardiovascular disease : with special emphasis on atrial fibrillation

    Författare :Peter Giesecke; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background Hyperthyroidism is a common disease throughout the world, affecting 0.5%-2% of women and one-tenth as many men at some time. Graves’ disease and toxic nodular goitre are the two most common etiologies. Cardiovascular symptoms are often prominent, and atrial fibrillation (AF) is a well-known complication. LÄS MER
