1. Economic development and injury mortality : Studies in global trends from a health transition perspective
Sammanfattning : Globally, injury is a major public health problem. The extent of the problem varies considerably by demographic subgroups, regions and national income. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: The relevance of conducting this thesis is evident by the fact that bus and coach casualties have been “stubbornly stable” in Europe recent years and a need for investigating if a similar trend could be found in Sweden is therefore obvious. It was also important to add new knowledge to the bus and coach research in Sweden, since many areas were scarcely addressed. LÄS MER
3. Modelling of Diffuse Brain Injury: Combining Methods to Study Possible Links between Transient Intracranial Pressure and Injury
Sammanfattning : The objectives of this research are the study of sagittal rotational acceleration induced diffuse brain injury mechanisms. Such injuries are common in vehicle accidents in particular; the consequences range from mild to severe symptoms and may lead to persistent neurological dysfunction. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Injuries related to snowmobiles, motorcycles and moose-car collisions have increased. The aim of the present thesis was to analyse mechanisms and consequences in fatal and non-fatal accidents of these types, and to penetrate possible preventive measures.SnowmobilesThe median age of the injured was 30 and of the killed 32, males predominating.

Sammanfattning : Isolated perfused rat lungs (IPRLs) were used to study mechanisms andmediators of lung injury due to (i) ischemia-reperfusion (IR) and (ii) endotoxin. To investigate the role of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) in IR injury, PMNs were added to the perfusate of IPRLs subjected to IR. LÄS MER
