Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to analyze Swedish health science student decision-making regarding vaccination against pandemic influenza during a national mass vaccination campaign. A questionnaire was distributed to 430 students during the influenza A (H1N1) pandemic in 2009. The data from medical and nursing students were compared and a multiple logistic regression model was applied to identify items independently associated with the decision to be vaccinated. The overall survey response rate was 90%. More medical (93.2%) than nursing students (84.8%) reported that they had received the vaccine (p andlt; 0.01). Only the perception that benefits can outweigh possible side effects was significantly (p andlt; 0.001) associated with the decision to get vaccinated. We recommend that, during pandemics, health science universities focus vaccination information for students on objective risk communication. It should be taken into account that the pandemic information provided by authorities to the general public also affects health care students.

Abstract [en]

In a questionnaire study detailed side effects after snoring surgery were examined in 415 individuals 2-8 years after surgery. Three years later a new questionnaire was answered by those with side effects affecting taste, smell and voice (n = 74). At the first follow-up 255 had side effects of globus, regurgitation, taste, smell and voice. The globus was the most common (40%). In all spheres except the globus, a significant improvement was seen 3 years later. However, pharyngeal dryness and phlegm had a reported frequency of nearly 60%. No significant differences were seen between the uvulopalatopharyngoplasty and laser uvulopalatoplasty methods. Taste disturbances might be due to surgical damage to the nerves or oral dryness. The olfactory impairment present in 7 patients still needs to be explained.

Abstract [en]

The general aim of this thesis was to evaluate the long-term effects of surgical treatment of snoring from the perspective of the patient and the cohabitant. In particular, the current snoring, daytime sleepiness and side effects have been investigated. A total of 415 (out of 457) patients operated on at a county hospital in Sweden during 1986-1992 and their 345 cohabitants have answered questionnaires, one for the patients and another one for the cohabitants.

Surgery for snoring (uvulopalatopharyngoplasty = UPPP and laseruvulopalatoplasty = LUPP) reduced the occurrence of snoring and improved 89.7% of the patients, which was confirmed by 92% cohabitants. Eighteen per cent were free from snoring, and 25 % had no daytime sleepiness. Individuals with a shorter time since surgery reported less snoring. The UPPP method had significantly better result on snoring.

Side effects from globus, regurgitation, taste, smell and voice were reported by 255 patients. Globus was most frequent, experienced by 161. These findings initiated a follow-up three years later of those who had reported side effects from taste, smell and voice (74).

The number of patients reporting these side effects had decreased. The olfactory function was improved in seven persons. Many individuals reported other side effects from different spheres which remained a long time after surgery, such as pharyngeal dryness and problems with phlegm (60%). Of them 16-20 people found them serious. The globus also remained which to our knowledge has not been reported in the literature earlier.

The majority of patients, even with side effects, were satisfied with the treatment and considered their status better or much better than before treatment. Looking back, if they had the choice again, 75% would choose surgical treatment for their snoring.
