    Being relaxed and powerful: children's lived experiences of coping with stress2009In: Children & society, ISSN 0951-0605, E-ISSN 1099-0860, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 203-213Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Our aim was to describe and develop an understanding of children's lived experiences of coping with stress. Twenty-three Swedish children, ages 10-12, wrote open letters and were interviewed. The phenomenological analysis resulted in three main themes: (i) depending on oneself, others and the world around, (ii) choosing to be a doer and (iii) being in the here and now. We understood the children's lived experiences of coping with stress as them being relaxed and powerful. The children chose to be active doers or inactive beings and their relationships, as well as their surroundings, helped or hindered their coping. Possible health promotion work is discussed.

    'Friendship is like an extra parachute': reflections on the way schoolchildren share their lived experiences of well-being through drawings2008In: Reflective Practice, ISSN 1462-3943, E-ISSN 1470-1103, Vol. 9, no 1, p. 23-35Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to create a new understanding of health promotion activities in the classroom setting through children's perspectives. Nineteen Swedish schoolchildren, ages 10- to 11-years-old, participated in health promotion work in the classroom. Through drawings and an exhibition discussion analysing their own and each other's drawings, they shared their lived experience of well-being and lack thereof. The phenomenological analysis resulted in three themes: (1) friends in good times and in bad; (2) the sunny side of life; (3) the bad and the mean. These themes were understood as friendship being like an extra parachute. Reflecting on the children's lived experience of well-being and our own role in the research process, the concept of openness surfaced. This we believe is an important ethical aspect of research with children.

    Schoolchildren from the north sharing their lived experience of health and well-being2006In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 1, no 4, p. 226-235Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study was to describe and develop an understanding of schoolchildren's health and well-being from their own perspective. Nearly 100 schoolchildren from the northern part of Sweden, aged 10–12 years, wrote open letters and participated in group discussions as a way to share their lived experience. The phenomenological analyze resulted in three main themes; (a) associating with others; (b) actively participating and (c) being a recipient. The schoolchildren's lived experience formed an intricate unite including health and ill-health as well as well-being and lack thereof. The meaning of schoolchildren's health and well-being was understood as the experience of relationships to others and as the relationship to oneself. The relationships to others was positive or negative for schoolchildren's health and well-being depending on if they were met with a “we” in mind or not. When given the choice to participate, and if shown respect, and trust was understood as positive for schoolchildren's health and well-being, while the opposite was true when lacking these qualities in relationships with others.

    The meaning of stress from schoolchildren's perspective2008In: Stress and Health, ISSN 1532-3005, E-ISSN 1532-2998, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 287-293Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Researching schoolchildren's lived experiences of stress was seen in this article as a holistic approach to stress research. The aim of this study was to illuminate the meaning of stress from schoolchildren's perspective. A total of 23 Swedish schoolchildren, aged 10-12 years, wrote open letters and were interviewed. The phenomenological-hermeneutical analysis resulted in five themes: being out of time; being less than one can be; being run by others; being in a fleeing, fighting body; and being lifted to excel. This updated understanding of the meaning of stress for schoolchildren included an emerged focus on their being caught in life's challenges. These challenges included a lack of freedom and time, as well as an opportunity for potential growth. Our understanding of the schoolchildren's lived experiences of stress may be used to facilitate the development of early stress intervention.

    Experiences of Interns and General Practitioners of Communicating with and Writing Referrals to the Radiology Department2016Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this licentiate thesis was to describe the experiences of medical interns and general practitioners (GPs) communicating with and writing referrals to the radiology department. The referral is a major communication tool between medical professionals to establish an accurate diagnosis.   

    Data were collected by means of qualitative research, using focus group interviews with three groups of medical interns during their internship in hospitals and with three groups of general practitioners in their health care centre. Data were analysed using qualitative thematic content analysis.     

    The study showed some differences between the groups in that the medical interns required more support in both referral writing situations and the decision portion of the process, choosing imaging modality. The general practitioners were more confident in the narrative process of the referral, writing facts and formulating diagnostic questions, but similarly they needed additional support in decisions concerning the imaging portion of the process. The GPs even advised an evident share of responsibility by letting the radiologists control the choice of imaging method. Both groups suggested different opportunities for dialogue and education as crucial to achieving improvements.

    The results can be discussed in relation to the specific radiology knowledge and are characterized by a combination of specific expert knowledge and tacit knowledge. The means of communication could be evaluated from different perspectives in relation to what referents and staff in the radiology department perceive and expect. The results can also be assessed in relation to the demand-control-support theory. In this respect, the medical interns experienced high demands and poor control and support, while the GPs experienced demands differently; they often controlled their situation but still needed enhanced radiological support.

    Scrutinized with inadequate control and support Interns' experiences communicating with and writing referrals to hospital radiology departments: a qualitative study2016In: Radiography, ISSN 1078-8174, E-ISSN 1532-2831, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 313-318Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    IntroductionInterns' experiences communicating with and writing referrals to hospital radiology departments are important for patient safety, image quality, and decision-making in the diagnostic process. Understanding roles within the department and in the diagnostic process is important for communication. This study aimed to describe interns' experiences communicating with and writing referrals to their hospital's radiology department.MethodA qualitative study design was used. Data was collected from focus discussions with ten interns in three focus groups in Northern Sweden during 2012. The data were subjected to qualitative content analysis.ResultsOne theme, “a feeling of being scrutinized and lacking control”, was identified in the final categories. The interns experienced that the radiology department placed high demands on them and desired more diagnostic skills training, resources and feedback. The interns suggested the following improvements: enhanced dialogue and feedback, improved education, handy guidelines, and practice writing referrals.ConclusionInterns need more feedback from, and dialogue with, members of the Department of Radiology. They also need more knowledge of referral guidelines, appropriateness criteria and more practice to develop their knowledge and skill for writing referrals. They describe feelings of inadequate support and feel scrutinized in demanding work conditions and need more collaboration. They also need more time and more control of radiology outcomes, and they are eager to learn.

    Field studies on the effects of food content on wakefulness2000In: Nutrition and Health, ISSN 0260-1060, Vol. 14, no 4, p. 195-204Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The investigation included six drivers engaged in day driving and six drivers engaged in night driving. Changes in wakefulness were analysed by means of a questionnaire where the drivers were asked to rate their wakefulness on a 100 mm rating scale. Changes in wakefulness were analysed during intake of food with higher and lower contents of fat. The day-drivers had their intakes as breakfast and lunch, the night-drivers as dinner and between meals. No significant difference was observed between the two types of intake, meaning that the balance between fat, protein and carbohydrate does not effect the development of drowsiness

    Onset of drowsiness and satiation after meals with different energy contents2001In: Nutrition and Health, ISSN 0260-1060, Vol. 15, no 2, p. 87-95Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The investigation consisted of a laboratory study with 10 healthy subjects who were both sleep and food deprived prior to each experimental condition. The aim of the study was to investigate the importance of energy content and the bulk of food on wakefulness and satiation. Each subject was tested in four conditions, each with equal food composition but different energy amounts: 100, 500 and 1000 kcal and 100 kcal with low bulk content. Recordings and ratings of wakefulness and satiations were carried out throughout the investigation, starting 30 minutes before and continuing until 90 minutes after intake of the food alternatives. No differences in wakefulness could be observed after the four food alternatives. However, subjects rated themselves as more satiated after the food alternatives with higher energy content and higher bulk

    Laboratory studies of the effects of carbohydrate consumption on wakefulness2000In: Nutrition and Health, ISSN 0260-1060, Vol. 13, no 4, p. 213-225Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Changes in wakefulness before and after exposure to carbohydrate intake were tested in 30 test persons. Changes in wakefulness were tested via EEG and subjective estimates. The intakes consisted of 400 ml glucose, 250 kcal (GI 100), 400 ml fructose, 209 kcal (GI 20), and 400 ml water. The study has indicated that intake of fructose, glucose and water had a similar stimulating effect on wakefulness in drowsy subjects immediately after intake. Our results also indicate that intake of fructose can lead to a delay in the development of drowsiness. Compared to water, a 20-30 minutes delay of the point in time when high-degree drowsiness developed, took place. There was no significant difference between glucose and water.

    Life satisfaction in persons with late effects of polio2011In: Applied Research in Quality of Life, ISSN 1871-2584, E-ISSN 1871-2576, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 71-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To assess satisfaction with life as a whole and with ten domains of life satisfaction in Swedish persons with late effects of polio, to describe the relationship with sex, age, marital status, use of mobility aids and self-perceived needs of instrumental support, and to compare the level of life satisfaction with a Swedish reference sample. A cross-sectional study of 160 persons with verified late effects of polio answered a postal questionnaire including the Life Satisfaction Questionnaire (LiSat-11). A majority were to some degree satisfied with life as a whole and with all the ten domains of life satisfaction. Satisfaction with life as whole was not related to any of the sociodemographic or disability related factors and these factors had few relations to the ten domains of life satisfaction. The respondents were significantly less satisfied with life as a whole and with vocation, leisure, sexual life, activities of daily living, and somatic and psychological health compared to the Swedish reference sample, but were significantly more satisfied with economy and contacts with friends. Men and women with late effects of polio, regardless of age, marital status or disability, can experience a reduced life satisfaction. This emphasises the need to identify potential gaps between these persons' aspirations and achievements in life and carry out appropriate rehabilitation interventions to enhance their life satisfaction

    Effects of age on marathon finishing time among male amateur runners in Stockholm marathon 1979-20142016In: Journal of Sport and Health Science, ISSN 2095-2546, E-ISSN 2213-2961, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 349-354Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    PurposeThe purpose of the present study was to investigate the age-related changes in the endurance performance among male amateur marathon runners.MethodsSubjects were taken from the 36 Stockholm Marathons heldfrom 1979 through 2014, and age and finishing time were analyzed for a total of 312,342male runners.ResultsThe relation was found to be a second-order polynomial, t = a + bx + cx2, which models 99.7% of the variation in the average running time t as a function of age x. The model shows that the marathon performance of the average runner improves up to age 34.3 ± 2.6 years, thereafter, the performance starts to decline. Aquantification of the age’s influence on running time shows that it accounts for 4.5% of the total variance seen in the performance data.ConclusionThese outcomes indicate that the effect of age on performance in endurance running events is clearly measurable, quantifiable and possible to describe. At the same time the findings indicate that other factors, such as training, affect the performance more. A comparison with the elite showed peak performance at the same age, but the rates of change in performance with age, improvement as well as degradation, was found to be higher among the elite.

    Evaluation of hand skin temperature: Infrared thermography in combination with cold stress tests2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    Since ancient times, warm or cold skin on the human body has been used as a parameter in evaluating health. Changes in body temperature are attributed to diseases or disorders. The assessment of body temperature is often performed to measure fever by detecting an elevated core temperature. With techniques such as infrared thermography, it is possible to perform a non-contact temperature measurement on a large surface area. The overall aim of this thesis was to contribute to a better understanding of the hand skin temperature variability in healthy persons and in persons experiencing whitening fingers (WF).

    The enclosed four papers discuss issues such as thermal variability response to cold stress test (CST) in repeated investigations; the specific rewarming pattern after CST; the difference between the hand’s palmar and dorsal temperatures; and evaluating skin temperatures and response to CST in participants with WF and healthy participants. All four papers used an experimental approach involving healthy males (I-III) and females (III) as well as individuals with (IV) and without WF (I-IV). Data were generated using dynamic infrared imaging before and after a CST. The radiometric images were analyzed using image analysis and statistics.

    The study showed that: (I) there is variability in hand skin temperature; (II) there are cold and warm hand skin temperature response patterns; (III) the skin temperatures on the palmar and dorsal sides of the hand are closely related; and (IV) a baseline hand skin temperature measurement can distinguish between whitening fingers and controls.

    The conclusion of this thesis is that it is necessary to engage in thorough planning before an investigation in order to choose the most adequate method for evaluating peripheral skin temperature response depending on the question asked.

    Thermal response after cold-water provocation of hands in healthy young men2015In: Thermology International, ISSN 1560-604X, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 48-53Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The thermal response in hands provoked by cold water was investigated with infrared thermography. In 26 healthy young men, the response of hand skin temperature to cold water provocation was measured twice on consecutive days. An infrared thermographic camera was used and data were processed in real time. The software divides each hand into 18 predefined regions of interest (ROI). The average temperature in each ROI was stored every 10th second. Baseline hand skin temperature was recorded for two minutes. The bare hands were then immersed for 30 seconds in water at 10°C × 0.5°C and carefully dried. Thereafter, the cooled and final hand skin temperature was measured. The baseline showed a higher average temperature of 0.3°C on day 2 and the 95% limits of agreement (LOA) were - 5.2-5.8, the cooled average temperatures showed no significant difference between the two days (LOA: - 4.8-4.6) and the average final hand skin temperature was 0.8°C higher on day 2 (LOA: - 5.2-6.4). In conclusion, there was variability between the two measurements, small differences in the temperature response to the reaction to cold-water provocation - probably due to Day 1 stress factor.

    Hand skin temperature: are there warm and cold rewarming patterns after cold stress test?2016In: Thermology International, ISSN 1560-604X, Vol. 26, no 3, p. 81-87Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In 116 thermographic measurements of 66 healthy male participants, 44 of whom were measured at least twice, hand skin temperature distributions before and after a cold stress test (CST) were examined to identify any typical characteristics of hand skin rewarming. On each hand, measurements from 18 regions of interest recorded every 10 s were used to calculate the surface average temperature. Temperatures at baseline (Tb), directly after cooling (Tc), and after 15 min of rewarming (Tf) were used for comparison and the averages of each finger, palm, and hand were analyzed. Using fits of normal distribution for the measured data, final hand skin temperatures were divided into two groups, A and B, with a calculated boundary at 25.4 °C. Digital analyses of all thermograms were performed to describe the process, and each group's rewarming patterns were observed. Group A was considered to demonstrate warm rewarming, since the whole hands reached a Tf approximately equal to the Tb. By contrast, Group B demonstrated cold rewarming and had whole hand Tf less than Tb. The predictive value of Tc was lower than that of Tb in Group A, whereas the opposite occurred in Group B. Altogether, the findings suggest different hand skin temperature rewarming patterns in healthy males.

    Relation between dorsal and palmar hand skin temperatures during a cold stress test2017In: Journal of Thermal Biology, ISSN 0306-4565, E-ISSN 1879-0992, Vol. 66, p. 87-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hand skin temperature measurements have previously been performed on either dorsal or palmar sides and it is possible to find arguments for the advantage of both locations. Therefore, the aim of this study was to use dynamic infrared (IR) imaging to examine the relationship between dorsal and palmar hand skin temperature. The palmar and dorsal hand skin temperature before and after a cold stress test was measured with IR thermography in 112 healthy participants. Calculation of surface average temperature was made from nine regions of interest on each hand's dorsal and palmar side. Temperature values were recorded at baseline, directly after immersion of hands in vinyl gloves for one minute in water at 20 °C ± 0.5 °C (gloves removed), and after eight minutes rewarming. Results showed that: a) the skin temperatures on the dorsal and palmar sides of the hand are strongly correlated; b) the correlation is stronger on the fingers than on the carpometacarpal (CMC) area; c) the palmar side of the CMC area is warmer than the dorsal side, but this is reversed in the fingers so that the nail bed is warmer than the finger pad; and d) the temperature difference ∆T∆T between the dorsal and palmar sides of the fingers is independent of the skin temperature, though ∆T∆T on the CMC area of the hand is temperature dependent. Such differences can be important in detailed investigations of thermal phenomena in the hand. In conclusion, results showed a strong correlation between the dorsal and palmar temperatures. If both sides cannot be measured, the purpose of the investigation should determine which side of the hand should be measured.

    Nursing students' perceptions of learning after High Fidelity simulation: Effects of a Three-step Post-Simulation Reflection Model2016In: Nurse Education Today, ISSN 0260-6917, E-ISSN 1532-2793, Vol. 40, p. 219-224Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    High-fidelity simulation (HFS) has become a bridge between theoretical knowledge and practical skills. A safe and realistic environment is commonly used in nursing education to improve cognitive, affective and psychomotor abilities. Debriefing following a simulation experience provides opportunities for students to analyse and begin to reflect upon their decisions, actions and results. The nursing literature highlights the need to promote the concept of reflective practice and to assist students in reflection, and research indicates the need to refine and develop debriefing strategies, which is the focus of the current paper.

    Abstract [en]

    Head injuries in sports have received increased attention during the past decade. As explained in this article, the most recent guidelines for the management of head injuries in sports adopted by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) have been adapted for the Swedish sports society. The guidelines include a grading scale of head injuries in sports, a sideline evaluation to aid physicians, coaches and athletes in the acute situation, and a management strategy for safe return to play after a head injury. The use of these guidelines will facilitate appropriate acute and subacute management and thereby prevent repeated head injuries that could lead to potentially catastrophic outcome or long-term cognitive sequelae

    Fun, feasible and functioning: Students’ experiences of a physical activity intervention2014In: European Journal of Physiotherapy, ISSN 2167-9169, E-ISSN 2167-9177, Vol. 16, no 4, p. 194-200Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this study was to describe students’ experiences of participating in a physical activity (PA) intervention. Methodology: A purposive sampling was used; 14 students (four boys and 10 girls) were interviewed and the collected data was analysed using qualitative content analysis. Major findings: One main theme was identified: fun, feasible and functioning. The following two subthemes also emerged: the multi-component intervention fits several, but not all, and manageable measuring can also be motivating. The main theme elucidates that fun was an important factor for joining the study; the students also experienced he empowerment-inspired intervention and the data collection to be fun and feasible. According to the students, the intervention was functioning since they experienced that it increased their PA. Principal conclusions: An empowerment approach that includes forming partnerships with students is a promising avenue for developing PA interventions for schools, regardless of whether the person concerned is a parent, teacher, school nurse or physiotherapist, but one size will never fit all.

    Abstract [en]

    Many unhealthy behaviors are created during adolescence and follow the individual into adulthood. In addition, health behaviors often occur in clusters as those who are inactive are more likely to eat unhealthy food and smoke. This makes the early foundation of healthy behaviors vital. The aim was to describe and develop an understanding of adolescents' awareness and experiences concerning health promotion. Data was collected using focus groups with a total of 28 seventh graders and was analysed with latent qualitative content analysis. One main theme was identified; being competent, ambivalent and creative at the same time. The following three subthemes also emerged: being a digital native for better and for worse, knowing what is healthy, and sometimes doing it, and considering change and having ideas of how change could be supported. The main theme elucidates how the majority of students were informed and able but they did not always prioritize their health. The concept of health promotion relies upon the engagement of the individual; however, although the students had clear ideas about how they would like to change their own behaviors, they felt a need for support. Interestingly, the students were able to make several suggestions about the kind of support that would make a difference to their adoption to more healthy modes of living. They suggested information and communication technology (ICT), for example encouraging text messages (SMS), and social support, for example parents setting rules and peers inspiring them to adhere to a healthy behavior. The knowledge gained from this study echoes our view of inclusion and this could be helpful for those who encounter the challenge of promoting health among adolescents

    Parent participation plays an important part in promoting physical activity2015In: International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being, ISSN 1748-2623, E-ISSN 1748-2631, Vol. 10, article id 27397Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although physical activity (PA) is an important and modifiable determinant of health, in Sweden only 15% of boys and 10%of girls aged 15 years old achieve the recommended levels of PA 7 days per week. Adolescents’ PA levels are associated withsocial influence exerted by parents, friends, and teachers. The purpose of this study was to describe parents’ experiencesof being a part of their adolescents’ empowerment-inspired PA intervention. A qualitative interview study was performedat a school in the northern part of Sweden. A total of 10 parents were interviewed, and the collected data were analyzedwith qualitative content analysis. Three subthemes were combined into one main theme, demonstrating that parents are oneimportant part of a successful PA intervention. The life of an adolescent has many options and demands that make it difficultto prioritize PA. Although parents felt that they were important in supporting their adolescent, a successful PA interventionmust have multiple components. Moreover, the parents noted that the intervention had a positive effect upon not only theiradolescents’, but also their own PA. Interventions aimed at promoting PA among adolescents should include measures tostimulate parent participation, have an empowerment approach, and preferably be school-based.

    Moving From Idea to Action: Promoting Physical Activity by Empowering Adolescents2014In: Health Promotion Practice, ISSN 1524-8399, E-ISSN 1552-6372, Vol. 15, no 6, p. 812-818Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background. Physical activity provides fundamental health benefits for children and youth. The aim of the study was to explore the possibility of conducting an empowerment-inspired intervention and examine the impact of the intervention in promoting moderate and vigorous physical activity (MVPA) among adolescents. Method. A nonrandomized trial with a concurrent control group was carried out. Physical activity data were collected before and after the intervention with daily questions by short message service. Self-efficacy, social support, and attitude were also measured before and after the intervention since they were possible mediators. Results. The intervention was created by the students, the researchers, and the teachers using an empowerment-based approach. Students in the intervention group (n = 21) increased their MVPA on average by 4.9 (SD = 28.9) minutes per day, and students in the control group (n = 25) reduced their MVPA on average by 25.4 (SD = 23.0) minutes per day (p = .000). Conclusions. The intervention might have contributed to a promotion of physical activity among students in the intervention group. The most valuable contribution this study provides is the knowledge that it is possible to develop and conduct an empowerment-inspired intervention to promote adolescent physical activity.

    Vardagsteknik: hinder och möjligheter efter förvärvad hjärnskada2009Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Teknik i vardagen har stor betydelse för våra dagliga aktiviteter och det är välkänt att personer med en förvärvad hjärnskada kan ha begränsningar när de utför dagliga aktiviteter. Kunskapen om deras svårigheter relaterade till användning av vardagsteknik och möjligheter att använda vardagsteknik som teknikstöd är begränsad. Det övergripande syftet med denna licentiatuppsats var därför att fördjupa kunskapen om användning av vardagsteknik för att ge ökade möjligheter till aktivitet och delaktighet i dagligt liv för vuxna med kognitiva funktionshinder efter förvärvad hjärnskada.Denna uppsats omfattar två delstudier. I delstudie I, som var en tvärsnittsstudie genomfördes semistrukturerade intervjuer (n=36) som identifierade och beskrev svårigheter vid användning av vardagsteknik och hur de upplevda svårigheterna påverkade dagliga aktiviteter och möjligheter till delaktighet i hemmet och i samhället. För att kompensera och reducera de upplevda svårigheterna genomfördes olika interventioner i delstudie II. Designen var fallstudier med individualiserad aktivitetsbaserad arbetsterapi med allmänt tillgänglig vardagsteknik (n=10).Resultaten från delstudie I visade att en majoritet av deltagarna rapporterade svårigheter vid användning av vardagsteknik, i huvudsak vid användning av telekommunikation och datorer. Trots svårigheter kunde de fortfarande använda de flesta föremålen och tjänsterna självständigt. Många upplevde också att deras svårigheter vid användning av vardagsteknik påverkade deras aktivitet och delaktighet, men i de flesta fall i mindre utsträckning. Interventionen med vardagsteknik i delstudie II visade att de upplevda svårigheterna med utförandet av aktiviteter minskade och tillfredsställelsen med utförandet ökade hos samtliga deltagare även lång tid efter skadan. En variation av vardagsteknik användes för att kompensera för de specifika svårigheterna men framför allt användes deltagarnas egna mobiltelefoner. Interventionsprocessens längd, antalet besök och tidsåtgång varierade mellan deltagarna.Resultatet visar att vid rehabilitering av personer med en hjärnskada bör arbetsterapeuter identifiera hur svårigheter vid användning av vardagsteknik påverkar personernas aktivitet och delaktighet och anpassa interventionerna därefter. Svårigheter vid användning av vardagsteknik måste också uppmärksammas vid utformningen av samhällsservicen för att förebygga hinder till aktivitet och delaktighet i samhället. Resultaten visar att individuell aktivitetsbaserad intervention med vardagsteknik kan kompensera för svårigheter vid utförandet av aktiviteter och öka tillfredsställelsen med utförandet. Interventionen kan också reducera övergripande upplevda svårigheter i aktivitet och leda till en ökad livstillfredsställelse efter en förvärvad hjärnskada. Resultatet av uppsatsen visar att vardagsteknik kan både möjliggöra och hindra aktivitet och delaktighet för personer med förvärvad hjärnskada. Därför är det viktigt att öka uppmärksamheten på vardagsteknikens roll och potential vid rehabilitering efter förvärvad hjärnskada.

    Communication and protocol compliance and their relation to the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR): a mixed-methods study of simulated telephone-assisted cpr.2015In: International Emergency Nursing, ISSN 1755-599X, E-ISSN 1878-013X, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 254-259Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: In the event of a cardiac arrest, emergency medical dispatchers (EMDs) play a critical role by providing telephone-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation (T-CPR) to laypersons. The aim of our investigation was to describe compliance with the T-CPR protocol, the performance of the laypersons in a simulated T-CPR situation, and the communication between laypersons and EMDs during these actions. Methods: We conducted a retrospective observational study by analysing 20 recorded video and audio files. In a simulation, EMDs provided laypersons with instructions following T-CPR protocols. These were then analysed using a mixed method with convergent parallel design. Results: If the EMDs complied with the T-CPR protocol, the laypersons performed the correct procedures in 71% of the actions. The single most challenging instruction of the T-CPR protocol, for both EMDs and laypersons, was airway control. Mean values for compression depth and frequency did not reach established guideline goals for CPR. Conclusion: Proper application of T-CPR protocols by EMDs resulted in better performance by laypersons in CPR. The most problematic task for EMDs as well for laypersons was airway management. The study results did not establish that the quality of communication between EMDs and laypersons performing CPR in a cardiac arrest situation led to statistically different outcomes, as measured by the quality and effectiveness of the CPR delivered

    Two New Polymorphic Cocrystals of Zafirlukast: Preparation, Crystal Structure, and Stability Relations2015In: Crystal Growth & Design, ISSN 1528-7483, E-ISSN 1528-7505, Vol. 15, no 8, p. 4162-4169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two new cocrystals of zafirlukast with piperazine, existing in five different solid forms, have been discovered during a cocrystal screening. The crystal structure of one of these form has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction, and the stability landscape of the crystalline forms of the new cocrystal has been studied. In the present article, we extend the knowledge about the solid state of this important pharmaceutical drug for the treatment of asthma by reporting the crystal structures of two new solvates (acetonitrile and butanol) and the elusive anhydrous Form X, which have been solved by single crystal X-ray diffraction

    Methacholine reactivity and asthma: Report from the Northern Sweden Obstructive Lung Disease Project1993In: Allergy. European Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, ISSN 0105-4538, E-ISSN 1398-9995, Vol. 48, no 2, p. 117-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Methacholine tests were used in an epidemiologic study of the prevalence of asthma and chronic bronchitis in northern Sweden. Of 6610 subjects in three age groups from eight representative geographic areas in the northernmost province of Sweden, 5698 (86%) completed a postal questionnaire on respiratory symptoms, and 1506 underwent a structured interview and a lung function test. A total of 292 (5%) were diagnosed as having asthma. A subsample of 284 subjects (of 320 invited) classified at the interview as having asthma (n = 98) or as having respiratory symptoms that might be due to asthma but not fulfilling the interview criteria for the diagnosis of asthma (n = 186) underwent a methacholine test. Subjects who, before the interview study, already had a well-defined asthma diagnosis were not invited to the methacholine testing. Of those 98 subjects classified as having asthma, 61% reacted to methacholine doses < or = 4 mg/ml and 79% to doses < or = 8 mg/ml, while the corresponding figures in the symptomatic but nonasthma group were 20% and 34%, respectively. The results show that a carefully performed structured interview accurately diagnoses asthma in epidemiologic studies. The methacholine tests provide important diagnostic information primarily in subjects in whom the medical history is equivocal
