Sammanfattning : Energy harvesting is identified as an alternative solution for powering implantable biosensors. It can potentially enable the development of self-powered implants if the harvested energy is properly handled. This development implies that batteries, which impose many limitations, are replaced by miniature harvesting devices. LÄS MER
2. Management of patients treated with left ventricular assist devices : A clinical and experimental study
Sammanfattning : This thesis describes the management of patients treated with mechanical circulatory support devices for short- or long-term use. Twenty-four patients suffering from postcardiotomy heart failure were treated with a minimally invasive axial flow pump. LÄS MER
3. Implantable devices in heart failure : Studies on biventricular pacing and continuous hemodynamic monitoring
Sammanfattning : Chronic heart failure is a highly symptomatic syndrome associated with increasing prevalence, frequent hospital admissions and high treatment costs. Despite recent advances in drug therapy, morbidity and mortality are still high. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Organic electronic devices are considered as one of the best candidates to replace conventional inorganic electronic devices due to their electronic conductive functionality, low-cost production techniques, the ability to tune their optical and electronic properties using organic chemistry, and their mechanical flexibility. Moreover, these systems are ideal for bioelectronic applications due to their softness, biocompatibility, and most importantly, their electronic and ionic transport. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : I vår moderna värd är vi väldigt beroende av elektrisk energi som vi använder för det mesta i får vardag: för att lysa upp våra hus, generera värme, driva våra datorer och mobiltelefoner och mycket mer. Produktion av elektrisk energi har dock ofta en negativ på-verkan på vår miljö. LÄS MER
