  1. 1. Water physiology in burn victims

    Författare :Joachim Zdolsek; Tøstolv Lund; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Total body water; Extracellular fluid; Burn; Bioelectrical impedance; Oedema; Extracellular matrix; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Patients who sustain a burn injury of more than 20 - 30 % TBSA will, if untreated, develop burn shock within a couple of hours. Flcid is lost fi·om the vascular compartment due to suction from the interstitium of the wound and due to a generalised increase in vascular permeability. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Body composition and quality of life in patients with IBD, ileostomy and short bowel syndrome

    Författare :Eva Carlsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; inflammatory bowel disease; Crohn´s disease; ulcerative colitis; short bowel syndrome; quality of life; health related quality of life; coping; concern; body composition; bioelectric impedance spectroscopy; Dual-energy absorptiometry; total body water;

    Sammanfattning : Patients with IBD are at risk for intestinal disability (e.g. having a stoma, malnutrition). The general aim of the thesis was to investigate physiological, psychological and social consequences of having IBD and an ileostomy or short bowel syndrome (SBS). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Morphological antipredator adaptations in water fleas

    Författare :Hans Lord; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Body drag; Daphnia cristata; Reynolds number; viscosity; zooplankton; Bosmina; swimming velocity; cyclomorphosis; sexual dimorphism; head area; helmet angle; trophic condition; allometry; invertebrate predator; fish;

    Sammanfattning : Some Bosmina and Daphnia species have the ability to develop extreme morphological antipredator defences, such as long antennules, high carapaces and helmets. The relative sizes of these plastic traits may differ substantially between populations, and also between individuals within a population, between sexes and during ontogeny. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Towards sustainable solid waste management in Jordan

    Författare :Mohammad Aljaradin; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solid Waste Management; Public Participation; Recycling; Landfilling; Jordan;

    Sammanfattning : Jordan is a country with a growing population that is undergoing rapid modernization. The increased volume of solid waste and associated logistical difficulties, the steady growth in the cost of waste management and the risk to human health are sources of concern. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Clinical pharmacokinetics of intravenous ethanol : Relationship between the ethanol space and total body water

    Författare :Åke Norberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: Total body water (TBW) is an important parameter in pathological states where the normal regulation of fluid balance is impaired (e.g., during critical illness, congestive heart failure, bum injury and renal insufficiency). LÄS MER
