1. Cold finger
Sammanfattning : Post Traumatic Cold Intolerance is the most common, and often the most prominent disabilityfrom hand trauma. The discomfort caused by cold is believed to be linked to a dysfunction o f thedigital vasoregulation, but its pathophysiology is poorly understood. Cold induced vasospasm, i.e. LÄS MER
2. Cold Sensitivity in injured and normal hands. Consequences for daily life
Sammanfattning : Cold sensitivity is a common and persistent complaint after various hand injuries and diseases. The general aim of the thesis was to investigate the consequences of cold sensitivity for daily life in patients with traumatic hand injuries and hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS). LÄS MER
3. Cold exposure and health : A study on neurological and vascular hand symptoms in northern Sweden
Sammanfattning : Background: Living in a cold climate is associated with several adverse health effects. The main purpose of this thesis was to describe cold exposure characteristics in northern Sweden, and investigate the associations between such exposure and the reporting of neurological and vascular hand symptoms.

4. Cold-induced nonshivering thermogenesis : tissue origin, activation, recruitment
Sammanfattning : Two types of heat production, shivering and nonshivering thermogenesis, are activated in mammals in the cold. In small mammals, nonshivering thermogenesis becomes the main source of heat upon long-term cold exposure. LÄS MER
5. Vibration-induced neuropathy in the hand
Sammanfattning : The aim of this study was to investigate clinical, pathophysiological and structural aspects of vibration-induced peripheral neuropathy since work with hand-held vibrating tools may lead to progressive neurological and vascular hand symptoms. Symptomatic vibration-exposed men were examined clinically and by neurography, tactilometry, and vibrometry and by measurement of temperature perception thresholds. LÄS MER
