  1. 16. In-hospital bed occupancy and the emergency department - effects on decisions about the level of care

    Författare :Mathias Blom; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; emergency department overcrowding; access block; inpatient admission; unplanned 72h revisits;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Emergency Department (ED) overcrowding occurs when the need for ED services outstrips available resources. Causes have been divided into input, throughput, and output factors, of which the last appear to be the most influential. LÄS MER

  2. 17. Receptor Upregulation and MAPK Activity in Arteries and Bronchi Following Secondhand Smoke Exposure

    Författare :Lei Cao; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary arteries; cerebral arteries; 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor; endothelin receptor; secondhand smoke exposure; bronchi;

    Sammanfattning : Cigarette smoking is a major risk factor for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Contractile receptor changes have been observed in several vascular diseases. The intracellular mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways are suggested to be associated with receptor upregulation. LÄS MER

  3. 18. Vascular Endothelin and Angiotensin Receptors Regulation in Inflammatory Arterial Disorders

    Författare :Ivan Dimitrijevic; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ischemic heart disease; resistance artery; giant cell arteritis; temporal artery; immunohistochemistry; AT2 receptor; AT1 receptor; Endothelin-1; ETA receptor; ETB receptor;

    Sammanfattning : The present thesis is aimed to examine the hypothesis that the degree of vascular inflammation correlates with the expression of vascular endothelin and angiotensin receptors. The receptor changes were studied in subcutaneous resistance arteries in patients with different degrees of ischemic heart disease (IHD). LÄS MER

  4. 19. Natriuretic Peptides and the Microcirkulation in Heart Failure Patients

    Författare :MarieLouise Edvinsson; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heart failure natriuretic peptides BNP cutaneous microcirculation;

    Sammanfattning : The increased prevalence of chronic congestive heart failure (HF) is a tremendous challenge for society. In spite of effective medical treatment for acute HF, better pharmacological treatment for specific neurohormonal intervention and better diagnostic tools, e.g. LÄS MER

  5. 20. Distribution of CGRP and CGRP receptor in the trigeminovascular system and CNS

    Författare :Sajedeh Eftekhari; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CGRP; CLR; RAMP1; migraine; trigeminovascular system; pain; cerebellum;

    Sammanfattning : Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) has a key role in the pathophysiology of migraine and is associated with activation of the trigeminovascular system. Recently, CGRP receptor antagonists have been developed with clinical efficacy. LÄS MER
