    Nyckelord :ICD-implantation; healthcare professional; life situation; organisation of care; experiences; satisfaction; uncertainty; clinical aspects; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Background: An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is a technical device used in the treatment of ventricular arrhythmias. After the implantation of an ICD the entire life situation can be affected with psychological and social consequences for the patient and his/her next of kin. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Studies on malignant ventricular tachyarrhythmias and their treatment with an implantable defibrillator

    Sammanfattning : Aims: To investigate the hemodynamic, metabolic and autonomic effects of ventricular fibrillation per se during maintained circulation. To study the defibrillation threshold (DFT) and efficacy of a new and thinner ICD lead (DSP) compared with the standard lead (C). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Implantable cardioverter defibrillator treatment in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

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

    Sammanfattning : Background: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a heterogeneous disease with various clinical manifestations, including sudden cardiac death, which can be prevented by an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD). Aims: The general aim of this thesis was to elucidate different aspects of ICD treatment in patients with HCM. LÄS MER
