• Effect of requiring a general practitioner at scenes of serious injury: A systematic review 

    Straumann, Gyri Synnøve Hval; Austvoll-Dahlgren, Astrid; Holte, Hilde H; Wisborg, Torben (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-05)
    <p><i>Background - </i>In Norway, each municipality is responsible for providing first line emergency healthcare, and it is mandatory to have a primary care physician/general practitioner on call continuously. This mandate ensures that a physician can assist patients and ambulance personnel at the site of severe injuries or illnesses. The compulsory presence of the general practitioner at the scene ...
  • The significance of cultural norms and clinical logics for the perception of possible relapse in rural Northern Norway – sensing symptoms of cancer 

    Skowronski, Magdalena; Risør, Mette Bech; Foss, Nina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-31)
    Little is known about the process from experiencing indeterminate bodily sensations to perceiving them as possible symptoms of cancer relapse. We explore how such processes are related to local values and to clinical practice in rural Northern Norway. One-year ethnographic fieldwork was conducted in a coastal village involving ten key participants residing in the village who had undergone cancer ...
  • Following a long-distance classical race the whole-body kinematics of double poling by elite cross-country skiers are altered 

    Zoppirolli, Chiara; Bortolan, Lorenzo; Stella, Federico; Boccia, Gennaro; Holmberg, Hans-Christer; Schena, Federico; Pellegrini, Barbara (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-07-25)
    Introduction: <br>Although short-term (approximately 10-min) fatiguing DP has been reported not to alter the joint kinematics or displacement of the centre of mass (COM) of high-level skiers, we hypothesize that prolonged DP does change these kinematics, since muscular strength is impaired following endurance events lasting longer than 2 h. <br>Methods:<br> During the 58-km Marcialonga race ...
  • Modelling persistent methane seepage offshore western Svalbard since early Pleistocene 

    Knies, Jochen; Daszinnies, Matthias Christian; Plaza-Faverola, Andreia; Chand, Shyam; Sylta, Øyvind; Bünz, Stefan; Johnson, Joel E; Mattingsdal, Rune; Mienert, Jurgen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-31)
    Recent observations of extensive methane release into the oceans and atmosphere have raised concern as to whether rising temperatures across the Arctic could drive rapid destabilization of gas hydrate reservoirs. Here, we report modelling results from hydrate-modulated methane seepage from Vestnesa Ridge, offshore western Svalbard, suggesting that continuous leakage has occurred from the seafloor ...
  • Subliminal priming og betinging av kunstige stereotyper 

    Brandt, Kai Erik (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-11-09)
    En hyppig brukt metode for å studere subliminale fenomener er det maskerte primings-paradigmet. Tidligere studier med dette paradigmet har vist at subliminal priming og betinging har en effekt, men det er likevel uklarheter knyttet til ulike modererende faktorer. Slike modererende faktorer kan for eksempel være forsøksdeltakeres holdninger mot en stimulus eller det kan også være av mer teknisk art ...
