We examined water gains and water losses in a group of athletes after an ultra-endurance event. Thirteen male triathletes competed in a triathlon consisting of 21 km canoeing, 97 km cycling, and 42 km running. Water loss determinations included sweat rate (940 +/- 163 g.h-1), urine output (41 +/- 38 g.h-1), and respiratory water loss (88 +/- 10 g.h-1).(More)
During the years 1969-1976 214 patients with malar bone fractures were treated. A retrospective study was carried out and a follow-up by the aid of a questionnaire. The clinical judgement at 1 week after surgery showed good results. The follow-up study revealed, however, a poorer picture. Among the surgically treated patients who answered the questionnaire,(More)
The medical records of 368 patients, hospitalized for facial fractures, were analyzed according to sex, age, etiology, etc. To get the long-term results, the patients were given a questionnaire which was answered by 271 patients (73.6%). In the total material there is an overrepresentation for younger males and the main reasons for the fractures are traffic(More)
A long-term study of nasopharyngeal carriership in 405 children, aged 6 months to 5 years, attending day-care centres was performed. The effect of pneumococcal vaccination was evaluated in a double-blind investigation where the children received either Pneumovax (a 14-valent pneumococcal vaccine) or saline. Nasopharyngeal cultures were taken monthly by a(More)
Allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) is curative in patients with β-thalassemia major. However, most reports on HCT outcomes lack long-term follow-up data with the exception of single-center reports. An international multicenter retrospective data collection and analysis was conducted in 176 β-thalassemia patients who were 1 year or beyond(More)
During a 2-year period nasopharyngeal specimens were taken monthly on scheduled occasions as well as at episodes of acute otitis media (AOM) from a population of children attending day-care centres. The carriage rates of pneumococci, Haemophilus influenzae and Branhamella catarrhalis in 26 otitis-prone (OP) children when asymptomatic and at episodes of AOM(More)
Seventy-eight patients, all over 10 years of age, with clinical signs of acute otitis media, received either phenoxymethyl penicillin or erythromycin stearate, in a randomized manner, and the clinical, bacteriological and immunological effects were studied. Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae were the major pathogens isolated from the(More)
During the years 1969-1979, 534 patients with facial fractures were treated. Of those 178 were traffic victims. A seat belt legislation was established in Sweden on January 1, 1975. The use of seat belts rose to about 85% of all drivers and front seat passengers and our 'severe fractures' of the face were significantly reduced in frequency from 36 to 12%.
The marrow iron reserves, automated red cell indices, serum iron, and total iron binding capacity of 69 geriatric patients were recorded. A fall in the mean red cell volume (MCV) to between 71 and 82 fl failed to distinguish between iron deficiency and the 'anaemia of chronic disorders'. However, there was no reserve of marrow iron in the eight patients(More)
Children, aged 6 months to 5 years, were pair-matched with respect to age and history of otitis media acuta. The 405 children received either a subcutaneous injection of Pneumovax (a 14-valent pneumococcal vaccine) or of saline, in a double-blind fashion. The follow-up period for each child was 1 1/2 years. In children younger than 2 years at vaccination no(More)
