  1. 1. Uncertainty, variability and environmental risk analysis

    Detta är en avhandling från Växjö, Kalmar : Linnaeus University Press

    Författare :Monika Filipsson; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Contaminated land; exposure assessment; exposure factors; risk analysis; risk perception; uncertainty; variability; probabilistic risk assessment; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Sammanfattning : The negative effects of hazardous substances and possible measures that can be taken are evaluated in the environmental risk analysis process, consisting of risk assessment, risk communication and risk management. Uncertainty due to lack of knowledge and natural variability are always present in this process. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Accidental hypothermia and local cold injury physiological and epidemiological studies on risk

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Helge Brändström; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cold-related injuries; hypothermia; frostbite; cold adaptation; rewarming; autonomic nervous system; heart rate variability;

    Sammanfattning : Background: (Papers I and II) The objectives were to first determine incidence and contributing factors to cold-related injuries in northern Sweden, both those that led to hospitalization and those that led to fatality.  (Papers III and IV) A further aim was to assess post-cooling hand-rewarming responses and effects of training in a cold environment, both on fingertip rewarming and on function of the autonomic nervous system, to evaluate if there was adaptation related to prolonged occupational cold exposure.

  3. 3. Cardiovascular risk indicators in adolescents the Umeå youth study

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Författare :Erik Bergström; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1995]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular risk factors; adolescents; serum lipids; serum insulin; serum ferritin; anthropometry; blood pressure; physical fitness; physical activity; diet; smoking; socio-economic status;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (CVD), particularly coronary heart disease (CHD) and cerebrovascular disease, are today major causes of death in the industrialised parts of the world. There are evidence to suggest that the atherosclerotic process starts in childhood, implying that preventive measures should be implemented already in children and adolescents. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Identification and validation of risk factors in cold work

    Detta är en avhandling från Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Författare :Lina Giedraityte; [2005]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industrial Work Environment; Industriell produktionsmiljö;

    Sammanfattning : There are very few methods available for the assessment of cold exposure and they rely more or less on complex equations for calculating heat balance; therefore, there is a need for new practical methods for the identification and control of cold hazards in workplaces. In the first study, the aim was to test a checklist which enables cold risk assessment based on observations in the workplace. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Effects of Smoking and Other Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Diseases

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Liza Ljungberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the most common cause of death in Western countries. Smoking, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and hypercholesterolemia are considered as major risk factors. However, the underlying mechanisms by which these factors cause CVDs are not entirely clear.
