PURPOSE Female athletes are known to be at risk for reproductive dysfunction and osteopenia because of energy deficiency. Although endocrine balance and an optimal body composition are essential for top elite performance, these parameters have not yet been explored fully in Olympic sportswomen. The objective of this study, therefore, was to characterize the(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this paper is to explain how different emergency services adopt and adapt the same hospital-wide lean-inspired intervention and how this is reflected in hospital process performance data. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH A multiple case study based on a realistic evaluation approach to identify mechanisms for how lean impacts process(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate cardiac structure and function and exercise capacity in senior former elite athlete women. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS Twenty postmenopausal former elite endurance athletes and 19 age-matched sedentary controls. METHODS All subjects underwent transthoracic Doppler echocardiography and maximal exercise test on a(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize endothelial function in postmenopausal former elite athletes in comparison to sedentary controls and to study the influence of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) on endothelial function in these groups of women. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Research unit at a university hospital. PARTICIPANTS Twenty postmenopausal(More)
BACKGROUND Optimization of body weight and composition is a key priority for elite athletes striving for a competitive advantage. The present investigation was designed to characterize various parameters related to weight control in Olympic competitors. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Research unit at a University Hospital. PARTICIPANTS 223(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the endocrine profile, body composition, and state of mood in male Olympic athletes participating in sports that do or do not emphasize leanness. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Research unit at a university hospital. PARTICIPANTS Forty-four Swedish male Olympic athletes participating in 26 different sport disciplines.(More)
Objective: To examine the correlation between plasma hCG results obtained with the new i-STAT® hCG point of care test with those concomitantly obtained from the central hospital laboratory utilizing the same patient samples. Methods: Prospective cross-sectional laboratory test evaluation. We compared plasma hCG results obtained with the i-STAT® hCG test(More)
