Clinical scientist interested in cardiovascular and emergency medicine. In clinical studies I evaluate ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) during 24 hours in patients with established cardiovascular disease (CVD). I study the value of different biomarkers to predict incident CVD, in relation to ABP and in relation to the effect of antihypertensive treatment. I also study the relation of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and Cystatin C to CVD and investigate the relative importance of genes and environment for the association between CVD, hypertension and cystatin C/CKD. My research is performed both in clinical study groups in patients with established cardiovascular disease, in larger population based studies as well as in registry based studies. .
In the field of emergency medicine I study new treatment algorithms for chest pain patients in clinical studies as well as outcome and risk factors in registry studies. We investigate short term outcome in relation to different chief complaints in the ER and evaluate the effect of crowding in relation to different chief complaints.
