  1. 1. Processing of the Phonocardiographic Signal : methods for the intelligent stethoscope

    Författare :Christer Ahlström; Per Ask; Leif Sörnmo; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bioacoustics; phonocardiographic; signal processing; heart sound; lung sound; nonlinear dynamics; Medical technology; Medicinsk teknik;

    Sammanfattning : Phonocardiographic signals contain bioacoustic information reflecting the operation of the heart. Normally there are two heart sounds, and additional sounds indicate disease. If a third heart sound is present it could be a sign of heart failure whereas a murmur indicates defective valves or an orifice in the septal wall. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Offshore wind farms - ecological effects of noise and habitat alteration on fish

    Författare :Mathias H. Andersson; Sören Nylin; Magnus Wahlberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; renewable energy; fish population; artificial reef; attraction vs. production; habitat structure; reef effect; FAD; bioacoustics; noise disturbance; fish behaviour; detection range; threshold; masking; fish communication and hearing; Marine ecology; Marin ekologi; zoologisk ekologi; Animal Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : There are large gaps in our understanding how fish populations are affected by the anthropogenic noise and the alteration of habitat caused by the construction and operation of offshore wind farms. These issues are of great importance as the construction of offshore wind farms will increase all over the world in the near future. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Bioacoustic principles used in monitoring and diagnostic applications

    Författare :Peter Hult; Bertil Hök; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The idea behind this work is linked to the experience gained from the long use of the stethoscope, and to the fact that sound originating from the body is a mechanical fingerprint, reflecting the human body functions.The aims of this thesis have been to develop bioacoustic systems using modern medical signal processing in three applications.

  4. 4. Multi-Channel Acquisition and Visualization of the Dolphin Echolocation Beam – Instrumentation Design and Bioacoustic Results

    Författare :Josefin Starkhammar; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []

    Sammanfattning : Toothed whales (Odontocetes) use echolocation to navigate and find food in dark or murky waters. A wide range of innovative studies has since the 1960:s been used to characterize their echolocation beam and map out their echolocation skills. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Wave energy conversion and the marine environment : Colonization patterns and habitat dynamics

    Författare :Olivia Langhamer; Anders Berglund; Jan Sundberg; Andrew Gill; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; artificial reefs; benthos; biodiversity; biofouling; colonization; environmental impact; fish; shellfish; Mytilus edulis; renewable energy; wave power; Biology; Biologi; Animal Ecology; Zooekologi;

    Sammanfattning : A wave energy park has been established on the Swedish west coast outside Lysekil and pioneer work about its interactions with the marine environment has been conducted. So far, little is known about the effects of offshore energy installations on the marine environment, and this thesis assists in minimizing environmental risks as well as in enhancing potential positive effects on the marine environment.
