    Job strain and atrial fibrillation – Results from the Swedish Longitudinal Occupational Survey of Health and meta-analysis of three studies2018In: European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, ISSN 2047-4873, E-ISSN 2047-4881, Vol. 25, no 11, p. 1142-1149Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    Knowledge about the impact of occupational exposures, such as work stress, on the risk of atrial fibrillation is limited. The present study aims to investigate the association between job strain, a measure of work stress, and atrial fibrillation.

    Design

    Prospective cohort study design and fixed-effect meta-analysis.

    Methods

    Data from the Swedish Longitudinal Occupational Survey of Health (SLOSH) was utilised for the main analysis, combining self-reported data on work stress at baseline with follow-up data on atrial fibrillation from nationwide registers. Cox proportional hazard regression analyses were used to estimate hazard ratios and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). A fixed-effect meta-analysis was conducted to pool the results from the present study with results from two similar previously published studies.

    Results

    Based on SLOSH data, job strain was associated with an almost 50% increased risk of atrial fibrillation (hazard ratio 1.48, 95% CI 1.00–2.18) after adjustment for age, sex and education. Further adjustment for smoking, physical activity, body mass index and hypertension did not alter the estimated risk. The meta-analysis of the present and two previously published studies showed a consistent pattern, with job strain being associated with increased risk of atrial fibrillation in all three studies. The estimated pooled hazard ratio was 1.37 (95% CI 1.13–1.67).

    Conclusion

    The results highlight that occupational exposures, such as work stress, may be important risk factors for incident atrial fibrillation.

    Comparison of alternative versions of the job demand-control scales in 17 European cohort studies: the IPD-Work consortium2012In: BMC Public Health, ISSN 1471-2458, E-ISSN 1471-2458, Vol. 12, no 62Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background Job strain (i.e., high job demands combined with low job control) is a frequently used indicator of harmful work stress, but studies have often used partial versions of the complete multi-item job demands and control scales. Understanding whether the different instruments assess the same underlying concepts has crucial implications for the interpretation of findings across studies, harmonisation of multi-cohort data for pooled analyses, and design of future studies. As part of the 'IPD-Work' (Individual-participant-data meta-analysis in working populations) consortium, we compared different versions of the demands and control scales available in 17 European cohort studies.

    Methods Six of the 17 studies had information on the complete scales and 11 on partial scales. Here, we analyse individual level data from 70 751 participants of the studies which had complete scales (5 demand items, 6 job control items).

    Results We found high Pearson correlation coefficients between complete scales of job demands and control relative to scales with at least three items (r > 0.90) and for partial scales with two items only (r = 0.76-0.88). In comparison with scores from the complete scales, the agreement between job strain definitions was very good when only one item was missing in either the demands or the control scale (kappa > 0.80); good for job strain assessed with three demand items and all six control items (kappa > 0.68) and moderate to good when items were missing from both scales (kappa = 0.54-0.76). The sensitivity was >0.80 when only one item was missing from either scale, decreasing when several items were missing in one or both job strain subscales.

    Conclusions Partial job demand and job control scales with at least half of the items of the complete scales, and job strain indices based on one complete and one partial scale, seemed to assess the same underlying concepts as the complete survey instruments.

    Root-filled teeth and recurrent caries: A study of three repeated crodd-sectional samples from the city of Jönköping, Sweden2011In: Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-6357, E-ISSN 1502-3850, Vol. 69, no 6, p. 401-405Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective. The aim of the study was to test the hypothesis that root-filled teeth are at a higher caries risk than non-root-filled teeth. Materials and methods. Two sub-samples from epidemiologically obtained data collected in 1983, 1993 and 2003 in the city of Jönköping, Sweden, were analysed. All the participants were examined clinically and radiographically and the type of filling and the presence or absence of caries were recorded. Sub-sample 1 comprised 832 individuals (9202 teeth) aged 20–70 years with at least eight premolars/molars. In sub-sample 2, 163 subjects (577 teeth) with only one or two decayed tooth surfaces and at least one tooth with full crown coverage were analysed. Results . Logistic regression analysis found that root-filled teeth were predictive of recurrent caries when controlling for the type of restoration in sub-sample 1 (OR = 1.68; 1.41–2.0; CI 95%) and sub-sample 2 (OR = 2.20; 1.07–4.52; CI 95%). Conclusion . In support of the suggested hypothesis, the data revealed a significant association between root-filled teeth and recurrent caries.Read More: http://informahealthcare.com/doi/abs/10.3109/00016357.2011.572291

    Utvärdering av resistensbestämning med diskdiffusionstest från selektiva agarmedier för MRSA, ESBL och VRE i jämförelse med från blodagar2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Multiresistant bacteria such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) producing bacteria and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) have been a problem for decades with an increasing rate. Today, at mikrobiologen, Unilabs Skövde, bacterial strains are isolated from selective media for MRSA, ESBL and VRE onto blood agar before the susceptibility testing. The aim of the study was to examine the possibility of disk diffusion susceptibility testing directly from the selective media and thus be able to reply the findings earlier. The zones of inhibition were examined for a total of 64 isolates after disk diffusion testing from both the selective and blood agar plates in order to evaluate if the zone sizes were affected. The results showed what was considered a normal variation of ±2 mm for all pairwise zones except for a difference in 3 mm. The majority of all zones tested for MRSA, ESBL and VRE had equally large zones, 62%, 89% and 98% respectively. Based on the good results, the material was considered enough to make the conclusion that the method is feasible. Considering the positive effects of making susceptibility testing directly from selective agar, a change to this method is recommended to mikrobiologen, Unilabs Skövde.

    Life-space mobility and participation in daily activities and social life among older men and women2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    Life-space mobility, i.e., the frequency and independence of transferring to different life-spaces (extending from a person’s bedroom to places beyond hometown), is evident to decrease in later life with potential risk of restricted participation in daily activities and social life. Modes of transport support participation through life-space mobility differently, and older men and women tend to choose different modes. The aim was to identify differences in participation in daily activities and social life related to life-space mobility and gender.

    Methods

    Data included the Life-Space Assessment (LSA), transportation, activities of daily living, and community activities. Participants living in their own housing in Sweden (n=312; 147 men, 165 women), aged 75+ (mean age 80), were randomly selected from a population register.

    Result

    LSA total score differed significantly (p<0.001) between men (mean=72) and women (mean=58), and between different modes of transport (p<0.001) with bike users (mean=79) and car drivers (mean=77) reaching the highest LSA total scores. Gender differences were evident related to mode of transport (p<0.001), with men predominantly (74%) driving their own car, while women were driving (32%), going by car as a passenger (32%) or used public transportation (21%). Participation in community activities did not differ significantly between genders, but between LSA total scores (p<0.001). For example, LSA total score was lower for persons taking part in no (mean=55) compared to five (mean=84) community activities at least once a month.

    Conclusion

    Life-space mobility is vital to consider when aiming to support continuing participation in daily activities and social life.

    Validitet och reliabilitet för Life-Space Assessment (LSA) - ett instrument för bedömning av äldre personers mobilitet2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Förmågan och möjligheter att förflytta (mobilitet) begränsas ofta i senare delen av livet, med negativa konsekvenser fördelaktighet i dagliga och sociala aktiviteter. Såväl i praktisk verksamhet som för forskning behövs instrument som kanbedöma mobilitet. The Life Space Assessment (LSA), utvecklat i USA, är bedömer en individs mobilitet genom attfokusera på förmågan att ta sig till olika “life-spaces”, från rummet där personen sover till platser bortom hemorten undersenaste månaden. LSA beaktar dessutom hur ofta detta sker, och om det sker med hjälpmedel eller hjälp av annanperson.

    Syfte: Syftet var att undersöka samtidig validitet och testa reliabilitet av LSAs svenska version.

    Metod: LSA översattes till svenska och inkluderades tillsammans med andra hälsorelaterade mått i en populationsbaserad studiemed slumpmässigt utvalda personer mellan 75 och 90 år (medelålder 81 år) i enskilt boende. LSA summerades till fyrapoängsummor, dvs total, oberoende, assisterad och maximal life-space poäng. 298 individer ingick i reliabilitetstudienoch besvarade LSA vid två tillfällen med 14 dagars mellanrum. 312 individer ingick i validitetsstudien där LSA jämfördesmed andra mobilitetsrelaterade mått.

    Resultat/preliminärt resultat: Det fanns inga signifikanta skillnader mellan skattningarna över tid för LSA fyra poängsummor. Medelvärdet för total life-space poäng var t ex 65 (22) och 65 (23) (max 120). Korrelationsvärden (ICC) mellan 0.84-0.94 visar på god till utmärktreliabilitet för total, oberoende och assisterad LSA. Vad gäller validitet påvisas signifikanta (p<0.01) och måttligt till godakorrelationer (0.50- 0.75) mellan LSAs fyra poängsummor och förmåga till förflyttning (överflyttning, balans, uppresningoch gångförmåga), transport (vardagliga resor och nöjesresor), och aktivitet i samhället (inköp och fritid)

    Slutsats: Den svenska versionen av LSA har god validitet samt god till utmärkt reliabilitet och kan med förtroende användas för attbedöma mobilitet hos äldre i enskilt boende.

    Concurrent validity of the Swedish version of the life-space assessment questionnaire2016In: BMC Geriatrics, ISSN 1471-2318, E-ISSN 1471-2318, Vol. 16, article id 181Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: The Life-Space Assessment (LSA), developed in the USA, is an instrument focusing on mobility with respect to reaching different areas defined as life-spaces, extending from the room where the person sleeps to mobility outside one's hometown. A newly translated Swedish version of the LSA (LSA-S) has been tested for test-retest reliability, but the validity remains to be tested. The purpose of the present study was to examine the concurrent validity of the LSA-S, by comparing and correlating the LSA scores to other measures of mobility.

    METHOD: The LSA was included in a population-based study of health, functioning and mobility among older persons in Sweden, and the present analysis comprised 312 community-dwelling participants. To test the concurrent validity, the LSA scores were compared to a number of other mobility-related variables, including the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) as well as "stair climbing", "transfers", "transportation", "food shopping", "travel for pleasure" and "community activities". The LSA total mean scores for different levels of the other mobility-related variables, and measures of correlation were calculated.

    RESULTS: Higher LSA total mean scores were observed with higher levels of all the other mobility related variables. Most of the correlations between the LSA and the other mobility variables were large (r = 0.5-1.0) and significant at the 0.01 level. The LSA total score, as well as independent life-space and assistive life-space correlated with transportation (0.63, 0.66, 0.64) and food shopping (0.55, 0.58, 0.55). Assistive life-space also correlated with SPPB (0.47). With respect to maximal life-space, the correlations with the mobility-related variables were generally lower (below 0.5), probably since this aspect of life-space mobility is highly influenced by social support and is not so dependent on the individual's own physical function.

    CONCLUSION: LSA was shown to be a valid measure of mobility when using the LSA total, independent LS or assistive LSA.

    Altered PPARγ coactivator-1 alpha expression in abdominal aortic aneurysm: Possible effects on mitochondrial biogenesis2016In: Journal of Vascular Research, ISSN 1018-1172, E-ISSN 1423-0135, Vol. 53, no 1-2, p. 17-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction: Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a complex and deadly vascular disorder. The pathogenesis of AAA includes destruction and phenotypic alterations of the vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and aortic tissues. PPARγ coactivator-1 alpha (PGC1α) regulates VSMC migration and matrix formation and is a major inducer of mitochondrial biogenesis and function, including oxidative metabolism. Methods: Protein and gene expression of PGC1α and markers for mitochondria biogenesis and cell type-specificity were analysed in AAA aortas from humans and mice and compared against control aortas. Results: Gene expression of PPARGC1A was decreased in human AAA and angiotensin (Ang) II-induced AAA in mice when compared to control vessels. However, high expression of PGC1α was detected in regions of neovascularisation in the adventitia layer. In contrast, the intima/media layer of AAA vessel exhibited defective mitochondrial biogenesis as indicated by low expression of PPARGC1A, VDAC, ATP synthase and citrate synthase. Conclusion: Our results suggest that mitochondrial biogenesis is impaired in AAA in synthetic SMCs in the media, with the exception of newly formed supporting vessels in the adventitia where the mitochondrial markers seem to be intact. To our knowledge, this is the first study investigating PGC1α and mitochondria biogenesis in AAA.

    Detektion av Trichomonas vaginalis samt Mycoplasma genitalium med multiplex realtids-PCR: En prevalensstudie i Jönköpings län2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The request for detection of Trichomonas vaginalis and Mycoplasma genitalium in Jönköping County is low compared to Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Both T. vaginalis and M. genitalium have been associated with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection and can cause infections such as salpingitis, potentially resulting in infertility. The pathogens have also been described to increase the risk of HIV transmission. The aim of this study was to detect T. vaginalis and M. genitalium by real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to estimate the prevalence among individuals tested for C. trachomatis, N. gonorrhoeae and HPV in Jönköping County. In individuals above the age of 25 years, tested for C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae, the prevalence was estimated to 5,5 % for M. genitalium and 0,13 % for T. vaginalis. In the same group the prevalence of C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae was 4,5 % and 0,13 % respectively. The prevalence in individuals tested for HPV was estimated to 2,3 % for M. genitalium and 0,26 % for T. vaginalis. Relevance of a more frequent request for detection of M. genitalium was concluded and single pathogen detection was not deemed to be optimal. Multiplex analysis for detection of sexually transmitted pathogens is encouraged.

    Impact of dry mouth conditions on oral health-related quality of life in older people2005In: Gerodontology, ISSN 0734-0664, E-ISSN 1741-2358, Vol. 22, no 4, p. 219-226Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of dry mouth conditions on oral health-related quality of life in frail old people, residents at community care centers. Further, reliability and validity of a visual analogue scale (VAS) for dry mouth symptoms were determined within the study cohort. BACKGROUND: In old people functional, social and psychological impacts of oral conditions are associated with an overall sense of well being and general health. Subjective dry mouth and reduced saliva flow are common disorders in old people caused by disease and medication. Thus, dry mouth conditions may be determinants for compromised oral health-related quality of life in old people. METHOD: In total, 50 old people living at service homes for the old people were asked to answer questionnaires on subjective dry mouth (VAS) and Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP14) for oral health-related quality of life. Saliva flow was estimated by absorbing saliva into a pre-weighed cotton roll. RESULTS: The final study cohort comprised 41 old people (aged 83-91 years). Significant associations were identified between both objective and subjective dry mouth and overall or specific aspects of oral health-related quality of life. CONCLUSION: Dry mouth (objective and subjective) is significantly associated with oral health-related quality of life strengthening the value of monitoring dry mouth conditions in the care of frail old people.

    Hypertonins påverkan av massage: En litteraturstudie2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The effect of massage on hypertension – a literature study

    Blood pressure is regulated by the autonomic nervous system along with the hormonal system RAAS and is a health risk mainly when it comes to the cardiovascular system. Hypertension is one of the biggest diseases and affects about 27 % of the Swedish population.

    The purpose of this study is to see whether massage can affect blood pressure in patients with hypertension and if massage therapy therefor can be used as a supplement to medication.

    15 scientific articles about the massage and its effects on blood pressure were studied.

    Massage therapy has been shown to have a positive effect when it comes to lowering blood pressure. The results made a visible relaxation of the participations in all examinations. The parasympathetic system was activated, and thereby reduced the secretion of stress hormones which are a significant factor when it comes to hypertension.

    Although massage is often seen as a method with no scientific basis, it becomes more and more accepted by the public and the medical activity. More scientific studies need to be done in this ongoing dilemma, where the number of patients with hypertension are constantly increase while knowing the positive impact of massage is growing without being used.

    Torrluftsprovokation vid diagnostik av bronkiell hyperreaktivitet: - Jämförelse mellan två olika provokationsvolymer2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Asthma is one of the most widespread diseases in Sweden today treated with modern drugs. The objective is to improve patient's quality of life. This requires an accurate and early diag-nosis. A dry air provocation can be a great study option in asthma investigation.Patients inhale dry air by quick and deep breath for about 4 minutes. The balloon should be-come completely emptied; this is not easy and is therefore considered as a disadvantage of this method because patients may not get enough provoked.The study aims to compare high (FEV1 x 24) and low (FEV1 x 12) provocation volumes in dry air provocation that affect the outcome of increased airway resistance measured bydynamic spirometry and Impulse oscillometry.Upon examination of the 10 volunteers, healthy individuals between 20-45 years without known bronchial hyperreactivity, there was no difference in airway reaction of dry air provo-cation with low and high volume provocation.This could mean that provocation volume does not matter so much for the outcome, but we examined only a small group of healthy subjects with no known bronchial hyperreactivity.In order to reliably verify the results, a similar study needs to be done on patients with known bronchial hyperreactivity.

    Management of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the anesthesia and radiographic context2017In: Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, ISSN 0196-206X, E-ISSN 1536-7312, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 187-196Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: As a primary objective, this study purports to develop guidelines to better care for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), particularly regarding these children's preparation for anesthesia and radiologic procedures.

    Methods: Using a Delphi method with an online distribution of questionnaire, guidelines for caring for children with ASD were created. Twenty-one participants were included in the expert panel. These participants were working with children with ASD in several anesthesia and radiology departments in Sweden. A list of items was created from a previous survey and the literature. In the first round, the items with <60% agreement were discarded. Items were merged, and a new list was created. Two more similar rounds were performed. In the last 2 rounds, 21 participants responded, and 80% agreement was considered to be consensus.

    Results: The final guidelines consisted of 14 items and a checklist of 16 factors. The 5 areas covered by the items and the checklist were as follows: planning involving parents/guardians, features in the environment, and use of time, communication, and the health care professionals. The organization was important in making it possible for the health care professional to care for the individual child according to the child's needs. It was important to involve the parents/guardians to obtain knowledge about the functioning of the child.

    Conclusion: A caring encounter involving a child with ASD in the anesthesia and radiology contexts requires advance planning, catered specifically to the individual needs of each child. To accomplish this, general knowledge regarding ASD and ASD's particular manifestation in the child entrusted to their care, is required from the health care workers. The organization needs to have structures in place to facilitate this process.

    Perioperative and anesthesia guidelines for children with autism: A nationwide survey from Sweden2016In: Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, ISSN 0196-206X, E-ISSN 1536-7312, Vol. 37, no 6, p. 457-464Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: The overall aim of this study was to describe the current set of guidelines for the preparation and care for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the perioperative setting across Sweden and explore the content of these guidelines in detail.

    Method: An online questionnaire was distributed to the chairpersons of all anesthesia departments (n = 68) and pediatric departments (n = 38) throughout Sweden. Follow-up phone calls were made to those departments that did not return the questionnaire. The presence of guidelines was analyzed through descriptive statistics. These guidelines and comments on routines used in these departments were analyzed inspired by conventional content analysis.

    Results: Seven of the 68 anesthesia departments and none of the 38 pediatric departments across Sweden have guidelines for preparing and/or administering care to children with ASD within the perioperative setting. From the guidelines and routines used, 3 categories emerge: "lacking the necessary conditions," "no extra considerations needed," and "care with specific consideration for children with ASD." These 3 categories span a continuum in the care. In the first category, the anesthesia induction could result in the child with ASD being physically restrained. In the last category, the entire encounter with the health care service would be adapted to the specific needs of the child.

    Conclusion: There is a lack of evidence-based guidelines specifically designed to meet the needs of children with ASD in the preoperative period in Sweden. Further research is needed to understand if children with ASD would benefit from evidence-based guidelines.

    Patientstråldosjämförelse vid konventionell urografi och lågdos CT-urografi2016Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Röntgensjuksköterskans huvudområde är radiografi som innefattar bland annat

    användning av joniserande strålning. CT undersökningar av urinvägssystemen och

    dess funktion ökar. CT ger en högre stråldos till patienter, jämfört med konventionell

    röntgen, vilket kan medföra olika sorters skador hos den som bestrålats. ALARAprincipen

    skall användas för att minska joniserande strålning så mycket som möjligt.

    Studien är utförd på Höglandsjukhuset i Eksjö där de har implementerat

    lågdosprotokoll på CT-urografi när det gäller att kontrollera funktionen av

    urinvägarna. Syftet med studien är att jämföra stråldoser vid konventionell urografi

    med lågdos CT urografi.

    Studien är kvantitativ och retrospektiv. Data har insamlats från PACS och RIS.

    Jämförelse av stråldoser har gjorts mellan patienter som gjort urografier med

    konventionell röntgen och patienter som gjort lågdos CT. Patienterna har matchats i

    avseende på kön, vikt och längd. Resultatet visar att lågdos CT-urografi gav 2,5

    gånger mer stråldos till patienten än konventionell urografi. Detta var ett rimligt

    resultat som stämmer med andra studier inom området.

    Fenotypning av trombocytantigen HPA1a med flödescytometri: screening för att finna blodgivare som saknar HPA1a2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    HPA1a is an antigen on the platelet surface that can cause alloimmunization, such as neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia and post transfusion purpura, which can cause severe bleeding symptoms. In case of antibodies against HPA1a, compatible platelets must be available. The purpose of the study was to establish a flow cytometric screening method for phenotyping HPA1a antigen on platelets and to find HPA1a negative donors. Before the flow cytometric analysis, two to five blood samples were pooled into one sample and in the presence of HPA1a negative platelets in the pool, the samples were analyzed individually. Fluorochrome –labeled anti-human antibodies to CD42a and CD61 were used to distinguish HPA1a negative platelets from HPA1a positive. A total of 177 blood samples were phenotyped, of which 7 (4%) were HPA1a negative. Of the seven findings, four samples were genotyped at an external laboratory confirming that they were HPA1a negative. Flow cytometric screening of HPA1a is fast, reliable and suitable for large scale screening. In order to determine the prevalence of HPA1a negative individuals, more extensive studies need to be performed involving a larger population. By having many registered HPA1a negative donors, it can provide opportunities to help patients in other regions.

    En jämförelse mellan mättekniker för högerkammarbedömning vid ekokardiografi: Överensstämmelse mellan s´ och TAPSE2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The assessment of right ventricular systolic function is done by echocardiography, with techniques as twodimensional echocardiography, motion-mode (M-mode) and Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI). Measurements ​​obtained from these techniques are Tricuspid Annular Plane Systolic Excursion (TAPSE) and s`. TAPSE describes the longitudinal movement of annulus tricuspidalis. s´ describes annulus tricuspidalis maximal systolic velocity. The purpose of this essay was to explore the relationship between TAPSE and s´. The study consists of 99 participants between the ages of 18 and 90. The population was consisted of individuals with or without cardiovascular disease, but not individuals with atrial fibrillation. Participants were investigated with transthorakal echocardiography (TTE) at Länssjukhuset Ryhov in Jönköping. At the examination both TAPSE and s´ was measured. McNemar's test was performed and a Kappa value was calculated. The result showed a significant difference and the Kappa value was low which indicates a low relationship between the variables. The outcome of the study shows that several participants are classified with normal right ventricular function measured with TAPSE, but the same individuals are classified with right ventricular dysfunction measured by s'. The reason for the poor relationship between the parameters is unknown and should be studied further in future studies.

    Kunskap och vanor om oral hälsa hos nyanlända invandrare i Jönköpings kommun2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: Invandrare är en utsatt grupp inom tandvården då de har sämre oral hälsa i jämförelse med svenskfödda individer. Orsaken kan vara oregelbundna tandvårdsbesök, brist på kunskaper angående preventiva åtgärder eller socioekonomiska faktorer. Syfte: var att kartlägga nyanlända invandrares kunskap och vanor om oral hälsa gällande orala sjukdomar, kost och oral hygien. Metod: En kvantitativ empirisk studie som genomfördes med ett enkätformulär innehållande 20 frågor. I studien ingick 107 individer med utländsk bak-grund, både män och kvinnor som går i en vuxenskola i en svensk medel stad kommun. Resultat: Antal deltagare bestod av 73 nyanlända och 34 invandrare som har bott i Sverige mer än två år (icke nyanlända). Deltagarna var medvetna om orala hygienrutiner. Majoriteten hade brist på kunskaper angående orala sjukdomar, hade kunskap rekommendationer kring oral hälsa från Sverige och brist på goda kostvanor. Det fanns inga signifikanta skillnader mellan nyanlända och icke nyanlända angående kunskap och vanor, men det skilde sig mellan grupperna avseende utbildningsnivå, inkomst och kostinformation i Sverige. Slutsats: Invandrare redovisade att de hade brist på kunskap om oral hälsa. Resultatet visade ingen skillnad i kost/orala hygienvanor oberoende av tiden som de hade varit bosatta i Sverige.

    Dental anxiety and pain related to dental hygienist treatment2008In: Acta Odontologica Scandinavica, ISSN 0001-6357, E-ISSN 1502-3850, Vol. 66, no 6, p. 374-379Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate different groups of patients' self-reported assessments of dental anxiety and pain related to various routine dental hygienist treatment procedures, and to investigate the relationship between anxiety concerning dental and dental hygienist treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A consecutive sample of 393 patients participated in the study (59.7% F, age range 20 to 85 years, mean 47.6 years). Periodontology (PC), oral medicine (OM), student and general practice (GP) clinics were included. Each patient was asked to answer a questionnaire which included different demographic information, self-reported levels of dental anxiety, and experience of pain in relation to different dental hygienist treatments. RESULTS: Higher dental anxiety was found in relation to gender (women), dentist treatment, and PC and OM patients. Experiences of high or extreme pain were reported by between 7.1% and 9.7% of participants for all dental hygienist procedures except polishing (0.8%). There were significant correlations between dental hygienist fear levels and reported extreme pain experiences among all five treatment procedures. Patients treated at the PC clinic scored significantly higher on pain compared with patients at the other clinics, with the exception of the OM clinic. CONCLUSIONS: Patients reported higher dental anxiety levels for dentist treatment as compared with dental hygienist treatment. Moreover, dental anxiety was significantly associated with perceived pain related to different dental hygienist treatment procedures.
