    Sammanfattning : Background and aim: Hospitals in the developed world are increasingly adopting digital systems such as electronic health records (EHRs) for all kinds of documentation. This move means that traditional paper case notes and nursing records are often documented in EHRs. LÄS MER

  2. 2. In-hospital patient safety - prevention of deterioration and unexpected death by systematic and interprofessional use of early warning scoring

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patient safety; Adverse event; Vital parameters; Deterioration; Early warning score; Mortality rate; Unexpected death; Clinical intervention; Adherence; Implementation; association;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract In-hospital patient safety is at times hampered, leaving general ward patients at considerable risk of gradual, even life-threatening, deterioration. In many European clinical settings, inappropriate nursing practice of bedside monitoring and management has recently been addressed as impending to in-hospital patient safety. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Counting deaths, accounting for lives : Novel applications of standardised verbal autopsy methods for augmented health systems

    Författare :Laith Hussain-Alkhateeb; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Verbal autopsy; cause of death; vital registration; health system; surveillance; World Health Organization;

    Sammanfattning : Half of the world’s deaths and their causes are never recorded by virtue of the under-resourced civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) systems which limits capacity of health systems to respond to population needs. Verbal autopsy (VA) has emerged as a pragmatic approach for determining causes of death using standard interviews including signs, symptoms and circumstances of death, conducted with the bereaved family.

  4. 4. Lung function after cardiac surgery : With special reference to atelectasis and ventilation-perfusion relationships

    Författare :Arne Tenling; Uppsala universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Patients undergoing cardiac surgery were investigated before and after the operation.Ventilation-perfusion (VA/Q) relationships were examined by the multiple inert gas elimination method, and atelectasis and aeration of the lungs were examined by computedtomography (CT).
