  1. 1. Assessment of increased upper airway resistance in snorers. Methodological and diagnostic considerations

    Detta är en avhandling från Otorhinolaryngology (Lund)

    Författare :Sören Berg; [1997]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; arousals.; pharyngeal pressure; intrathoracic pressure; hypopnea; respiratory ventilation; oxygenation; Non apneic snorers; upper airway obstruction; Otorhinolaryngology; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen;

    Sammanfattning : Sleep-related partial upper airway obstruction may cause increased morbidity and mortality, but diagnosis and treatment of patients is varying and inconsistent. The present studies were aimed to evaluate presently applied indirect methods for assessing respiratory ventilation and to investigate the value and accuracy in estimating upper airway resistance during sleep by measuring intrathoracic pressure variation with a microchip catheter in the esophagus.

  2. 2. Pharyngeal surgery and epidemiology in sleep apnea

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology

    Författare :Karin Lundkvist; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]

    Sammanfattning : Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) occurs frequently among adults and children. The first-line treatments in adults are continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or mandibular retaining devices (MRDs), but the long-term efficacy is only around 60%. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Therapeutic aspects of oral and pharyngeal swallowing dysfunction. Videoradiographic and videomanometric analyses of adult healthy volunteers and dysphagic patients

    Detta är en avhandling från M Bülow, Dept of Diagn Radiology, Malmö University Hospital, SE-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Författare :Margareta Bülow; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medical instrumentation; tomography; radiology; Clinical physics; Therapy; Videoradiography; Videomanometry; Dysphagia; Dysfunction; Swallowing; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering;

    Sammanfattning : In this study simultaneous videoradiography and intraluminal manometry (videomanometry) have been used in combination in three studies to analyze how different therapeutic strategies affect the physiology of swallowing in healthy volunteers and in patients with pharyngeal dysfunction. Analyses of healthy volunteers showed few significant measurable effects on the pharyngeal swallow. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Autonomic dysfunction in primary Sjögren's syndrome

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Rheumatology, Lund University

    Författare :Thomas Mandl; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; autonomic dysfunction; Sjögren s syndrome; dysphagia; neuropathy;

    Sammanfattning : The aims of this work were to evaluate objective and subjective signs of autonomic dysfunction (AD) in patients with primary Sjögren’s syndrome (pSS) and to evaluate its clinical associations. In study I, 46 pSS patients and 56/80/238 autonomic nervous function test (ANT) controls participated. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Patient safety in the Intensive Care Unit With special reference to Airway management and Nursing procedures

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Joakim Engström; Anders Larsson; Camilla Fröjd; Henrik Reinius; Peter Sackey; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intensive care unit; patient safety; nursing procedures; airway managment; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of the present thesis was to study aspects of patient safety in critically ill patients with special focus on airway management, respiratory complications and nursing procedures. Study I describes a method called pharyngeal oxygen administration during intubation in an experimental acute lung injury model. LÄS MER
