  3. 3. On visual impairment in Swedish children

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Författare :Jonas Blohmé; [2000]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; Sweden; sociology; mortality; outcome; epidemiology; registration; childhood blindness; Visual impairment; children; Oftalmologi;

    Sammanfattning : Knowledge of the epidemiology of visual impairment in children forms one of the cornerstones in paediatric ophthalmology. To gain an overview of the situation in Sweden an epidemiological study was performed. Totally 2373 visually impaired children were found, giving an age-specific prevalence of 10,9/10 000. Childhood blindness (i. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On the occurrence and possible causes of motor neuron disease in Sweden

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Författare :Lars-Gunnar Gunnarsson; [1992]

    Sammanfattning : A series of investigations have been performed to study secular trends of motor neuron disease (MND) morbidity and mortality in Sweden, to identify time and/or space clusters, if any, and to uncover risk factors. The occurrence of the disease was estimated from incidence, prevalence and mortality rates, and the strength of various determinants was evaluated by means of the case-control approach, using population controls.

  5. 5. Human body composition. Reference data and anthropometric equations. The metabolic syndrome and risk

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Författare :Ingrid Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]

    Sammanfattning : The determination of body composition is a key to the understanding of the relation between obesity and disease. In order to evaluate body composition data, reference values are needed. Since methods with high validity and reproducibility are expensive and often time consuming, simpler techniques based on anthropometry are needed. LÄS MER
