Research

Swedish legislation forbids pharmacological research on intensive care patients which means that epidemiological studies ar all the more important. Our research group conducts, amongst other things, registry based research in intensive care. In this group we have medical students and PhD students from anaesthesiology and intensive care as well as from the Centre of Mathemathics. We work with intensivists, mathematicians, statisticians, epidemiologists, pharmacologists and others and this field presents fantastic opportunities. An example of what we have investigated are gender differences in intensive care where we showed that men have better intensive care outcomes than women and that this holds for boys as well (Frigyesi et al :”Boys have better short-term and long-term survival rates after intensive care admissions than girls”, Acta Paediatrica 2017).
