  1. 1. Early Physiotherapy in the Neurointensive Care Unit - Passive Physiotherapy Interventions

    Författare :Annelie Thelandersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Physiotherapy; Brain injury; Stroke; Intensive care unit; Prone position; Range of motion; Continuous passive motion; Intra cranial pressure; Cerebral perfuison pressure; Haemodynamics;

    Sammanfattning : Background: In critically ill patients, treated in the neurointensive care unit (NICU) because of severe brain injury or stroke, physical activities have been restricted to a minimum due to the potential risks of complications and adverse events. Nevertheless, passive physiotherapy treatments are widely used without conclusive evidence for their safety. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Regional ventilation, pulmonary perfusion and gas exchange in supine and prone positions

    Författare :Margareta Mure; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ARDS; ALI; CPAP; Gas exchange; Prone position; Regional ventilation; Regional perfusion; Supine position;

    Sammanfattning : The rationale for treating patients with acute lung injury in the prone position springs from a number of observations. Clinical reports have documented improved oxygenation when patients are turned prone. Regional vascular conductance is higher in dorsal lung regions regardless of posture. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Gas exchange impairment in patients undergoing cardiac surgery : with reference to ventilation-perfusion relationships, thoracic intravascular and extravascular fluid volumes, pulmonary morphology and mechanical ventilation in the prone position

    Författare :Thomas Hachenberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

  4. 4. Gas Exchange in the Normal Lung : Experimental studies on the effects of positive end-expiratory pressure and body position

    Författare :Mats J. Johansson; Sten Walther; Gunnar Nicolaysen; John-Peder Escobar Kvitting; Stefan Lundin; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : BACKGROUND: The principal function of the lung is gas exchange requiring adequate ventilation and perfusion at the level of the alveoli. The efficiency of gas exchange is depending on the distributions of regional ventilation (V) and pulmonary blood flow (Q) and their correlation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Two New Non-invasive Treatment Methods for Otitis Media with Effusion in Children and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea in Adults

    Författare :Armin Bidarian-Moniri; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otitis media with effusion; Obstructive sleep apnoea; Serous otitis media; Conservative non-invasive non-surgical treatment; Glue ear; Polygraphy; Autoinflation; Polysomnography; Valsalva; Positional therapy; Politzer; Supine lateral and prone positioning; Secretory otitis media; Sleep apnea;

    Sammanfattning : Otitis media with effusion (OME) in children and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in adults are common conditions in medicine. Several surgical and non-surgical methods have been suggested for treatment of these diseases. LÄS MER
