    “Nipple shield” A link or a barrier? – Experiences of staff and parents of preterm infants in neonatal units (NICUs)2015Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Infants born before 37 gestational weeks are defined as being prematurely born.

    Breast milk is considered to be the best nutrition for preterm infants. However, they have an

    immature sucking behavior and the capacity for breastfeeding at the breast will likely be

    affected. The nipple shield has been used, and still is in some contexts, as a device to help the

    immature infant to attach to the breast. Among researchers and health professionals there are

    divergent opinions on the benefits and the negative aspects of using nipple shields.

    Objective: To explore perceptions and experiences of using a nipple shield among parents

    and staff in neonatal units in Sweden and England.

    Design: A qualitative study with an ethnographic approach. Observations and interviews were

    conducted in four neonatal units in Sweden and England. The data were analyzed using a

    thematic analysis and the result was presented in thematic networks.

    Result: Two global themes were identified. One theme with parents’ experiences “A tool?”

    was identified which include organizing themes; “Technical issues”, “Support from staff” and

    “Feeling of something in between”. Technical issues including both how it facilitates and

    technical problems when using it. Parents felt confused when they got different advice and

    mothers experienced an unnatural feeling when using the nipple shield. Experiences from

    staff was summarized in the second global theme; “Contentious tool” with the organizing

    themes; “Positive aspects” and “Negative aspects”. The nipple shield can be used as “a

    shortcut” to breastfeeding and some used it too easily and others not at all.

    Conclusion: This study demonstrates parents’ and staffs’ perceptions of nipple shield both as

    a link to help initiating breastfeeding and as a barrier between the mother and infant.

    Renewable Energy Emergency Microgrid Optimization in Ludvika2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In the community of Ludvika, a Renewable Energy Emergency Microgrid (REEM) has been defined to provide back-up power during crisis situations. An Energy Storage System (ESS) was designed to support the main loads of the Microgrid in the first working hours. Additionally, the ESS will start-up the hydro power station, which will replace the power supply from the battery after the set-up period. However, the necessity of understanding the operation of the major components, such as the photovoltaic (PV) system and the ESS, of the REEM in normal conditions is imperative.

    This study analyses a variety of scenarios to evaluate how the renewable energy of an isolated system can be managed. Alternatives for increasing self-consumption of PV power and reduce feed-in power in the REEM are investigated. All the solutions consider the complete system design and an additional economic analysis for supporting the decision-making. The results show that selling the energy to the grid is the best economic solution, followed by the distribution of energy. However, the difference of 0.5 % in the total net present cost (TNPC) makes the distribution system, including the ESS, an option to be considered. In the upcoming years, changes on the amount of energy produced by the PV system or increasing the battery capacity usage in normal operation can become more feasible.

    Kartläggning av ytjämnheten efter kallvalsning för olika kallvalsade kvalitéer samt trimvalsningens påverkan på ytjämnheten2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta arbete är att kartlägga ytjämnheten på stålbanden efter kallvalsning samt hur den erhålla ytjämnheten påverkas av trimvalsningen. Detta för att undersöka om det är möjligt att minska ner användandet av någon valsyta i Tandemverket vid SSAB Borlänge. Genom att mäta ytjämnheten på stålband av olika kallvalsade kvalitéer efter kallvalsning och trimvalsning, mäta ytråheten på texturerade valsar före och efter användning samt genomföra test med nya ytkombinationer har ett antal resultat genererats. Två test där Docol 200 band som skulle levereras med bandyta 23 valsades med en grövre yta i Tandem (valsyta 48 istället för 34) än vad som är brukligt och sedan trimvalsades med ordinarie valsyta visade att det är möjligt att klara kraven på Ra-värde för bandyta 23 även på band som kallvalsats med en grövre valsyta än i vanliga fall. Dock är det inte säkerställt att kraven för yta 23 alltid kan uppnås på band kallvalsade med grövre valsyta. Trimvalsning med valsyta 57 i den kontinuerliga glödgningslinjen har ingen betydande påverkan på ytjämnheten för Docol 600 & 800 DP, dock påverkar den ytan för Docol 200 eftersom att dessa band har mindre spridning i Ra-värde efter trimvalsning jämfört med innan. Trimvalsning med valsyta 57 höjer toppantalet på bandens yta. Band av en högre hållfasthetsklass får lägre Ra-värde jämfört mot mjukare stålsorter. Band med stor tjockleksreduktion i Tandem får lägre Ra-värde, detta gäller speciellt Docol 200 där trenden är tydligast. Ra-värdet på de texturerade valsarna i Tandem sjunker mycket i början när de används, test har visat att redan under kalibreringen kan Ra-värdet minska med 0,8 µm – 1,3 µm.

    Analys av lägenhetsskiljande bjälklag: Fallstudie av produktion av flerbostadshus i Sälenfjällen2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In construction of apartments several parameters determines the choice of production method. Costs and production time for the various operations are two important parts , As early as the planning stage it is important to have a clear picture of the different solutions' and its prerequisites to simplify the choice of production method.

    For new construction projects in Sälenfjällen the tight production times makes it important to know whether any solution could involve considerable delays in production time. On the other hand faster construction methods may also lead to higher costs.

    The thesis has been limited to four different floor constructions which are Finjas “Combi bjälklag”, “plattbärlag”, cross laminated timber and Dala cements “Daladekk”. The calculation has been linked to a reference building in Sälenfjällen and a supposed new production of four similar buildings.

    With the help of the structural design calculations were carried out to estimate the costs each approach brings, it also performed one simple analysis of the time spent.

    The result shows that it is best economical to build with "plattbärlag", followed by cross laminated timber. At the same time plattbärlaget and its construction has a risk for delayed production times, which mean it may be advantageous to chose the solution with cross laminated timber.

    Faktorer som är väsentliga för sjuksköterskors bedömning av smärta hos patienter med medelsvår till svår demens En litteraturöversikt2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Syfte

    Detta examensarbete är en litteraturöversikt som syftar till att beskriva vilka faktorer som är

    väsentliga för sjuksköterskors bedömning av smärta hos patienter med medelsvår till svår

    demens

    Metod

    Litteratur hittades via databaserna PubMed och Medline. Sjutton stycken artiklar som

    motsvarade syftet i studien hittades och analyserades. De sjutton artiklarna var publicerade

    mellan 2004 och 2014

    Resultat

    Analysen av de sjutton artiklar som ligger till grund för resultaten av studien visade tre

    kategorier; Känna igen smärta, Instrument för bedömning av smärta samt Kunskap och

    förhållningssätt. I kategorin att Känna igen smärta visar sig att det är en svår, viktig och

    komplicerad uppgift för sjuksköterskan att bedöma smärta hos patienter med demens. Detta

    beror på att de ofta inte kan uttrycka det verbalt, men i stället anger sjuksköterskan annat

    beteende av demens som skulle kunna vara ett tecken på underliggande smärta. Resultaten

    visade också att detta ledde till osäkerhet bland sjuksköterskor. I kategorin Instrument för

    bedömningen av smärta visade det sig att det fanns ett antal bedömningsverktyg som kan

    hjälpa sjuksköterskan i sin bedömning och tolkning av smärta hos patienter med demens. I

    kategorin Kunskap och attityd visade att sjuksköterskor som har utbildningar hade lättare att

    dechiffrera smärta hos patienter med demens och smärta hos patienter med demens kan ofta

    misstolkas som ett tecken på bara oro. Resultatet visar att det är viktigt med fastställda rutiner

    och rätt inställning sjuksköterskan för att kunna göra en bra och rättvis bedömning av smärta

    hos patienter med demens så att de får rätt behandling för smärta.

    Slutsatser

    Studien visar att det är en svår och komplex uppgift för sjuksköterskan att bedöma smärta hos

    patienter med demens. Det är lättare att bedöma smärtan hos en patient som sjuksköterskan

    har en god relation till och känner sedan tidigare. Bedömningsinstrument kan vara ett bra sätt

    och fungera som ett hjälpmedel för sjuksköterskan att tyda och tolka smärtan hos patienter

    med demens. Fortbildning av vårdpersonal i att tyda smärta hos patienter med demens är att

    rekommendera eftersom att litteraturen visade att långvarig erfarenhet leder till större

    skicklighet att upptäcka smärta och kan dessutom vålla desensibilisering. Det råder en stor

    osäkerhet hos vårdpersonal när det kommer till bedömning av smärta hos patienter med

    demens.

    Genetic association study of QT interval highlights role for calcium signaling pathways in myocardial repolarization2014In: Nature Genetics, ISSN 1061-4036, E-ISSN 1546-1718, Vol. 46, no 8, p. 826-836Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The QT interval, an electrocardiographic measure reflecting myocardial repolarization, is a heritable trait. QT prolongation is a risk factor for ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD) and could indicate the presence of the potentially lethal mendelian long-QT syndrome (LQTS). Using a genome-wide association and replication study in up to 100,000 individuals, we identified 35 common variant loci associated with QT interval that collectively explain similar to 8-10% of QT-interval variation and highlight the importance of calcium regulation in myocardial repolarization. Rare variant analysis of 6 new QT interval-associated loci in 298 unrelated probands with LQTS identified coding variants not found in controls but of uncertain causality and therefore requiring validation. Several newly identified loci encode proteins that physically interact with other recognized repolarization proteins. Our integration of common variant association, expression and orthogonal protein-protein interaction screens provides new insights into cardiac electrophysiology and identifies new candidate genes for ventricular arrhythmias, LQTS and SCD.

    Poverty as an Abuse of Human Rights in Ghana.: A grass roots perspective on poverty and human rights.2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years))Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The study aimed at getting a grass root opinion on poverty and why Ghana is still poor after 50 years of independence in spite of her richness in natural resources, second largest producer of cocoa in the word and appreciable stable political environment. The opinions of the ordinary people in the Bia district and their observed living conditions was analysed in line with theoretical basis of the study and previous studies to justify the stance that poverty should be considered as an abuse of human rights. It was concluded based on position of informants and previous data available that though many factors have been raised by previous scholars as the cause of poverty, the actions and inactions of both internal and external power-holders is the main source of poverty in Ghana. It was proposed that for poverty to be reduced in a sustainable way there should be strong civil society groups and active citizens through civic education to hold power-holders accountable. Until the actions and inactions of power-holders which have subjected many Ghanaians into intergenerational poverty are seen as human rights abuse, the rights of many Ghanaians would be constantly abused. This will eventually defeat the promotion of human rights culture in Ghana.

    Zigbee för längre avstånd2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    I dag går utvecklingen av trådlösa nätverk snabbt framåt. Zigbee är en helt ny teknik som bygger på IEEE 802-15-4 standarden. Zigbee utvecklades av the Zigbee Alliance som består av en rad stora elektronikföretag. Zigbee är en teknik som inriktar sig på låg energiförbrukning och låg kostnad. Tekniken är tänkt att användas för att ställa in och läsa av sensorer av olika slag. Denna rapport är ett resultat av ett examensarbete som går ut på att utreda om Zigbee tekniken kan användas för lite längre avstånd. Arbetet resulterade i två demoapplikationer för ett enkel zigbee system, och färdigskriven kod för en möjlighet att använda Zigbee för länge avstånd.

    Abstract [en]

    The study aims to study the cooperation between a social service and a residential care institution for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children and young people. The authors have conducted semi-structured interviews with social workers and residential care workers. The results has been analyzed from previous research and theoretical framework, which is about collaboration, communication and knowledge sharing. The result shows that they do not have an optimally functioning cooperation at the moment but they are working it out together. The result also shows that this is due to the increased number of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children who came to Sweden in 2015. This leads to both social service and residential care institution having a high workload and lack of time, which means that they have to prioritize urgent problems that arise.

    Abstract [en]

    The school and the workplace often represent two different cultures in terms of what is valued as important skills and values. The role of vocational teachers in apprenticeship education is to ensure that apprentices are embedded in both these cultures. However, because of significant differences between the school and the workplace, this task poses a professional challenge and a potential for value conflicts. In this study we analyse interviews with vocational teachers in the apprenticeship training for the building and construction programme using concepts based in Pragmatism and Curriculum theory. Our ambition is to highlight values often upheld by unreflected habits, and discuss how these condition the work of the vocational teacher. The main results indicate the importance of recognizing that two different types of curricula seems to interact in the apprenticeship education; a workplace curriculum that emphasize, “work ethics” and a school curriculum that emphasizes students´ “safety”. These different curricula interact in specific ways through the work of the vocational teachers that can be described as a ‘balancing act’. How this ‘balancing act’ is done have significant consequences for what kind of education students are offered and what value conflicts that emerge.
