Clinical scientist interested in cardiovascular and emergency medicine. 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 and longterm outcome in different chief complaints in the emergency department and evaluate the effect of crowding.
In clinical and registerbased studies I study risk prediction for recurrent cardiovascular events in patients with established cardiovascular disease (CVD). I study the value of different biomarkers to predict incident CVD, in relation to ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) during 24 hours and in relation to the effect of antihypertensive treatment. I also study the relation of chronic kidney disease (CKD) 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. .
