1. Weaning from mechanical ventilation – from the patient, next-of-kin and healthcare professionals’ perspective
Sammanfattning : Critically ill patients with failing respiratory and vital body functions might need invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV). When the patient’s condition improves, the need for respiratory support decreases and weaning from IMV begins. LÄS MER
2. Prolonged mechanical ventilation in Swedish intensive care units: patient characteristics, prevalence, weaning and challenges in care
Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to explore the care of adult patients on prolonged mechanical ventilation (PMV) in Swedish intensive care units (ICUs). Secondary aims were to identify the prevalence, characteristics and outcome in patients with PMV and the presence of person-centred care (PCC) during prolonged weaning in Swedish ICUs. Study I.

Sammanfattning : Patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) undergoing ventilator treatment may experience asynchrony with the ventilator, which has been associated with increased need of sedation, sleep disruption, prolonged mechanical ventilation and unsuccessful weaning from the ventilator. The search for new strategies to improve patient-ventilator interaction is ongoing. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: One of the most common diagnoses in the intensive care unit is acute respiratory failure. In its most severe form it is called acute respiratory distress syndrome and often requires mechanical ventilation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Study I: Thirteen patients underwent a modified Ross operation in which the free-standing pulmonary autograft was supported externally by a Dacron vascular prosthetic jacket (DVPJ). The tailor-made DVPJ prevented dilatation of the neo-aortic root significantly following a median follow-up of 47 months compared to a cohort of l3 matched patients undergoing conventional Ross operation.
