  • Sweet spot in music—Is predictability preferred among persons with psychotic-like experiences or autistic traits? 

    Lisøy, Rebekka Solvik; Pfuhl, Gerit; Sunde, Hans Fredrik; Biegler, Robert (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-09-29)
    People prefer music with an intermediate level of predictability; not so predictable as to be boring, yet not so unpredictable that it ceases to be music. This sweet spot for predictability varies due to differences in the perception of predictability. The symptoms of both psychosis and Autism Spectrum Disorder have been attributed to overestimation of uncertainty, which predicts a preference ...

    Norheim, Arne Johan; Fønnebø, Vinjar; Lindeland, John Petter; Varpe, Terje; Bigset, Catarina; Stub, Trine; Kristoffersen, Agnete Egilsdatter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-08-06)
    Background - Reflexology is commonly used as an adjunct to conventional treatment by patients with respiratory tract infections. The effect of reflexology needs to be tested in a full-scale randomized controlled study. Small early-phase trials can give an indication on whether full-size clinical trials are warranted. The objective of this study is to determine whether the study design is feasible ...
  • Garbage codes in the Norwegian Cause of Death Registry 1996-2019 

    Ellingsen, Christian Lycke; Alfsen, Glenny Cecilie; Ebbing, Marta; Pedersen, Anne Gro; Sulo, Gerhard; Vollset, Stein Emil; Braut, Geir Sverre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-07)
    Background: Reliable statistics on the underlying cause of death are essential for monitoring the health in a population. When there is insufcient information to identify the true underlying cause of death, the death will be classifed using less informative codes, garbage codes. If many deaths are assigned a garbage code, the information value of the cause-of-death statistics is reduced. The aim ...

  • Impact of total hip replacements on the incidence of hip fractures in Norway during 1999-2019. A NOREPOS study 

    Kjeldgaard, Helena Kames; Meyer, Haakon E.; O’Flaherty, Martin; Apalset, Ellen Margrete; Dahl, Cecilie; Emaus, Nina; Fenstad, Anne Marie; Furnes, Ove; Gjertsen, Jan-Erik; Hoff, Mari; Schei, Berit; Søgaard, Anne-Johanne; Tell, Grethe S.; Holvik, Kristin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-25)
    The knowledge about why hip fracture rates in Norway have declined is sparse. Concurrent with decreasing hip fracture rates, the rates of total hip replacements (THRs) have increased. We wanted to investigate if hip fracture rates continued to decline, and whether the increase in THRs had any influence on this decline, assuming that living with a hip prosthesis precludes fracture of the operated ...
  • Trauma team training in Norwegian hospitals: an observational study 

    Bredin, Ida Celine; Gaup, Hedi Marina Joks; Brattebø, Guttorm; Wisborg, Torben (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-05)
    Background: Traumatic injuries are a leading cause of deaths in Norway, especially among younger males. Traumarelated mortality can be reduced by structural measures, such as organization of a trauma system. Many hospitals in Norway treat few seriously injured patients, one of the reasons for development of the Norwegian trauma system. Since its implementation, there has been continuous improvement ...
  • Urinary orosomucoid is associated with diastolic dysfunction and carotid arteriopathy in the general population. Cross-sectional data from the Tromsø study 

    Andreassen, Runa Marie; Kronborg, Jens; Schirmer, Henrik; Mathiesen, Ellisiv B.; Melsom, Toralf; Eriksen, Bjørn Odvar; Jenssen, Trond Geir; Solbu, Marit Dahl (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-06-02)
    Objectives. Urinary albumin excretion is a risk marker for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Studies suggest that urinary orosomucoid may be a more sensitive marker of general endothelial dysfunction than albuminuria. The aim of this population-based cross-sectional study was to examine the associations between urinary orosomucoid to creatinine ratio (UOCR), urinary albumin to creatinine ratio ...
  • Exploring patient safety in rural general practice - a mixed-methods approach 

    Harbitz, Martin Bruusgaard (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2022-11-08)
    <p>Unsafe medical practices and incidents where safety hazards cause harm to patients occur daily in general practice. The costs to society, health care personnel and individual patients are substantial and deserve attention. “Hazards” can be regarded as local error-producing factors, latent failures, which create conditions for unsafe medical practice to take place. “Harm” occurs when these conditions ...
