Invasive bacterial disease occurs frequently among native populations in the Arctic. Although a variety of bacteria are involved in invasive bacterial disease in Greenland, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and other staphylococci are responsible for most cases (69%); incidence varies according to region and ethnicity.
UNLABELLED Up to 436,000 adult Danes suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), with only one third diagnosed at this time. The Danish National Board of Health recommends early detection of COPD, focusing on smokers/ex-smokers over 35 years of age with at least one lung symptom. A governmental prevention committee has suggested that the… (More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to provide evidence regarding the real-life efficacy of pregabalin in the treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain (NeP) in Denmark. METHODS In this prospective, observational, noninterventional study, pregabalin (Lyrica(®)) was prescribed following usual clinical practice. Compared with baseline, the primary study end… (More)
Thermodilution is the current standard for determination of cardiac output. The method is invasive and constitutes a risk for the patient. As an alternative CO₂ rebreathing allows non-invasive cardiac output estimation using Ficks principle. The method relies on estimation of arterial CO₂ partial pressure from end-tidal CO₂ pressure and estimation of mixed… (More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Around 70,000-80,000 Danes suffer from dementia. As average life expectancy increases, the number of people suffering from dementia is expected to increase in the future with informal care provided by family and friends becoming more important. The aim of this study was to estimate the time spent by family and friends on informal care of… (More)
Synchronization between single motor unit (SMU) discharges in separate muscles has been estimated from peaks in averaged electromyographic (EMG) recordings from one muscle triggered from SMU discharge in another. This study evaluated the effect of EMG signal cancellation on this measure of synchronization. SMU activity was recorded with 8 fine-wire… (More)
