Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with cardiovascular and respiratory effects of apneas in humans. During apnea (breath-holding), a number of interacting cardiovascular reflexes are initiated, and together these reflexes are called the “diving response”. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The aim was to elucidate the cardiovascular response associated with breath-hold diving, especially the effects of temperature in its elicitation and the effects of different types of training on the human diving response (DR) and breath-holding time (BHT), and to evaluate the human DR in a mammalian perspective. A model for simulated diving by apnea and facial immersion in cold water was developed. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : When a diving human holds his or her breath, the heart beat slows and the blood vessels constrict in large portions of the body. In diving mammals such as seals, similar responses effectively conserve oxygen for the brain, enabling them to dive very deep and to stay underwater for a long time. LÄS MER
4. Capturing the breath of the heart by magnetic resonance imaging : five-dimensional cardio-respiratory resolved cine imaging during free breathing
Sammanfattning : Cardiac imaging with cardiovascular magnetic resonance has the advantage of enabling dynamic visualizations, several quantifiable measures, and good soft-tissue contrast. However, a major drawback is the need for breath holding during many acquisitions to limit motion artifacts. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The size of a myocardial infarction (MI) and the concurrent effect on left ventricular (LV) function are essential for decisions regarding patient care and treatment. Images produced with the late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) technique visualize the scar with high spatial resolution. LÄS MER
