    Sammanfattning : In heart failure (HF), the heart is unable to pump effectively in order to satisfy the demands of the body. The elevated filling pressure seen in HF leads to accumulation of fluid in the lungs, i.e pulmonary congestion. While investigation with chest X-ray is recommended, it has limitations in detecting pulmonary congestion. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Diagnosing chronic heart failure (CHF) is difficult. General practitioners (GPs) have an important role in the management of heart failure patients, and the purpose of the studies was to examine their judgements of patients with suspected CHF. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cardiopulmonary adaption to one-lung ventilation and neoadjuvant therapy during treatment of esophageal cancer

    Författare :Mikael Lund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: Esophagectomy is the main form of curative treatment for esophageal cancer and has a high morbidity rate. Neoadjuvant chemo- (CT) or chemoradiotherapy (CRT) is employed to increase long-term survival. To improve perioperative care the effects of measures taken to improve surgical exposure i.e. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Susceptibility to Acute Decompensated Heart Failure in Two Common Mouse Strains

    Författare :Mediha Becriovic-Agic; Michael Hultström; Lena Jonasson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Heart failure is a clinical syndrome characterized by an inability of the heart to meet oxygen demands of the body. During the initial stage of heart failure development compensatory mechanisms are activated to help the heart sustain proper function. Over time these compensatory mechanisms become inadequate resulting in decompensation. LÄS MER
