  1. 1. Cardiovascular effects of growth hormone. Studies in genetically engineered mice

    Författare :Irene Andersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acromegaly; autonomic nervous system; cardiovascular disease; cardiac function; vascular function; growth hormone; heart rate variability; hypertension; insulin-like growth factor-1; transgenic mice;

    Sammanfattning : The general aim of this thesis was to enhance the understanding on the relationships between growth hormone (GH) and cardiovascular disease using genetically engineered mice. More specifically the effects of GH on blood pressure (BP), vascular and cardiac function, atherosclerosis and autonomic control of heart rate were studied. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Autonomic function and myocardial repolarisation. Studies in renal diseases and in spinal cord injury

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Sinsia Gao; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vagus; sympathetic nervous system; repolarisation; baroreflex; reproducibility; agreement; hypertension; spinal cord injury; autonomic dysreflexia; renal failure.;

    Sammanfattning : Both experimental and clinical evidence indicates that cardiac parasympathetic markers such as baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) and heart rate variability (HRV) have significant prognostic value. Furthermore, increased myocardial repolarisation lability reflected by increased QT variability index (QTVI) has been identified as a predictor for sudden cardiac death. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Prognostic Factors in First-Episode Schizophrenia Five-year Outcome of Symptoms, Function and Obesity

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Robert Bodén; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; First-episode; psychosis; schizophrenia; community mental health services; remission; functional outcome; biochemistry; obesity; weight-gain; prediction; autonomic balance; electrocardiography; MEDICINE Psychiatry; MEDICIN Psykiatri; Psychiatry; Psykiatri;

    Sammanfattning : Our knowledge of prognostic factors and optimal treatment organisation in schizophrenia is incomplete. The disparity of outcome measures used has been a major obstacle for research. Increasing evidence has shown that schizophrenia is associated with increased cardiovascular mortality, development of obesity and autonomic nervous system imbalance. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Cellular electrophysiological modulation in chronic atrial fibrillation - Studies with magnesium and GIK solution

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Cardiology, Clinical sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Max Ingemansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Action potential duration; Atrial cycle length; Atrial remodelling; Autonomic nervous system; AV-nodal; Conduction velocity; GIK; Magnesium; Resting membrane potential.; Refractoriness; Atrial fibrillation; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : Although chronic atrial fibrillation (CAF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia in man, the mechanisms involved in its progressive course are still not fully understood. Recent studies have verified an electrical remodelling of the atrial myocardium that may be responsible for the electrophysiological disturbances known to exist in the fibrillating atria. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Autonomic nervous system regulation in chronic neck-shoulder pain Relations to physical activity and perceived stress

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :David Hallman; Uppsala universitet.; Högskolan i Gävle.; Högskolan i Gävle.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Autonomic imbalance; Daily physical activity; Trapezius myalgia; Treatment; Parasympathetic; Sympathetic;

    Sammanfattning : Neck-shoulder pain (NSP) is a highly prevalent musculoskeletal disorder with unclear causes, and effective prevention and treatment require a further understanding of the underlying mechanisms. Aberrant autonomic nervous system (ANS) regulation is a hypothesized causal element in the development and maintenance of chronic muscle pain. LÄS MER
