This paper presents an empirical analysis of security and user experience issues in cloud computing. The study is based on the assumption that superior user experience and user-centric security are the two crucial issues that help to build an overall experience for the cloud service user. Qualitative research analysis is used to collect perspectives of(More)
This paper describes an online co-creation study done via an online co-creation platform Owela as well as shares industrial experiences and lessons learnt about the study. The Owela study was conducted in order to provide a deeper understanding of users' perceptions of cloud services and their security. By utilising the online co-creation platform it was(More)
Ninety-three healthy persons aged 11 to 91 years were studied to assess the factors influencing Doppler indexes of left ventricular (LV) diastolic filling. The effects of physical activity, alcohol consumption and smoking were tested in addition to those of age, sex, heart rate, body mass index, blood pressure, left atrial diameter, and LV end-diastolic(More)
Eighteen patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (three female, mean age 57 years), were treated for 48 weeks with enalapril added to digoxin and diuretic therapy for congestive heart failure of New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class II (three patients). III (eight patients) and IV (seven patients), respectively. Serum levels of erythropoietin(More)
Thirty-three patients with symptoms and signs of a deep venous thrombosis (DVT) were examined by contrast venography and radionuclide imaging with 99Tcm-hexamethylpropyleneamineoxime (99Tcm-HMPAO)-labelled autologous platelets. There were 13 patients on heparin therapy and 20 without anticoagulation during the scintigraphy. Scintigraphy consisted of blood(More)
Eighteen patients with suspicion of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in the lower extremities were imaged both with autologous 99mTc-HMPAO-labeled platelets (Tc-PLT) and 111In-labeled monoclonal antifibrin antibodies (In-MoAbs) on the same day. Presence or absence of thrombosis was verified by venography. Tc-PLT was given i.v. followed after 30 min by In-MoAbs.(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The Doppler indexes of left ventricular filling are related to age and heart rate. The aim of this study was to assess whether the influences of heart rate and age interactions (that is, whether the effect of heart rate on the Doppler indexes) is modified by age. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The effects of atropine-induced heart rate(More)
The hypothesis that the response to conventional physical therapy of patients suffering from chronic cervicobrachial pain and/or headache can be improved by adjusting dental occlusion, was tested. Forty patients seeking treatment were interviewed and examined prior to treatment, and 6 weeks, 12 months and 60 months after treatment. All patients underwent(More)
