  2. 2. Occupant casualties in bus and coach traffic : injury and crash mechanisms

    Författare :Pontus Albertsson; Ulf Björnstig; Torbjörn Falkmer; Claes Tingvall; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; bus; coach; aerodynamics; crash; non-crash; cross-wind; injuries; weight distribution; road friction; restraints; haddons matrix; prevention; severe crash; mass casualty; major incident; alighting; boarding; incidents; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    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. 3. Modelling of Diffuse Brain Injury: Combining Methods to Study Possible Links between Transient Intracranial Pressure and Injury

    Författare :Ulrika Krave; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :animal model; astrocytosis; diffuse axonal injury; neurofilaments; diffuse brain injury; rotational acceleration; closed head trauma; rabbit; finite element analysis; intracranial pressure; injury mechanisms;

    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

  4. 4. Snowmobile, motorcycle and moose-car accidents : aspects on injury control

    Författare :Ulf Björnstig; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Injury; accident; prevention; snowmobile; motorcycle; moose-car collision;

    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.

  5. 5. Mechanisms of inflammatory lung injury : Studies in isolated perfused rat lungs

    Författare :Anders Ljungman; Östergötlands Läns Landsting; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    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
