Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring and hypertension in children with diabetes mellitus type 1
Šuláková, Terezie ; Janda, Jan (advisor) ; Svačina, Štěpán (referee) ; Souček, Miroslav (referee)
Objective: to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of the office blood pressure (OBP) and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) in the assessment of hypertension (HTN) in children with diabetes mellitus type 1 (DM1). Methods: We analyzed OBP and ABPM measurements in 84 diabetic children (43 boys) obtained at a median age of 14.9 years and 6.3±3.5 years after diagnosis of DM1. OBP and ABPM results were converted into standard deviation scores (SDS). In addition, we analyzed blood pressure loads and nighttime dipping. The comparison between OBP and ABPM was performed using kappa coefficient and receiver operator curve (ROC). Results: HTN was diagnosed in 43/84 (51%) patients using OBP (>95th percentile) and in 24/84 (29%) patients using ABPM (≥95th percentile during 24h, day or night). Both methods were in agreement in 33 ABPM normotensive and 16 ABPM hypertensive patients (most had nighttime HTN); 32% patients had white coat HTN and 9.5% patients had masked HTN. The kappa coefficient was 0.175 (95% CI -0.034 to 0.384) suggesting poor agreement between OBP and ABPM. Diastolic OBP was a better predictor of ABPM HTN (ROC AUC=0.71±0.06) than systolic OBP (AUC= 0.58 ± 0.07). The percentage of non-dippers ranged from 7 to 23% in ABPM normotensive patients and 21-42% in ABPM hypertensive patients who also had...
Endothelin and renin - the angiotensin system and its relation to hypertension and hypertension organ damage
Dvořák, Pavel ; Červenka, Luděk (advisor) ; Herget, Jan (referee) ; Janda, Jan (referee) ; Tesař, Vladimír (referee)
Renin-angiotensin and endothelin system play important role in blood pressure regulation. ln order to determine the contribution of an interaction between ET-I and ANG II to the development of hypertension and related end-organ damage in an ANG lI-dependent model of hypertension, we utilized a rat strain transgenic for the mouse Ren-2 renin gene (TGR; strain name TGR(mRen2)27). All our experimental studies have confirmed the crucial effect of increased natrium intake in a diet on development of arterial hypertension and hypertensive end- organ damage (especially kidneys and heart) in this model of arterial hypertension. Previous studies have demonstrated the presence of several types of endothelin system receptors - ETA and ET6 receptors with two subtypes- ETBl and ET62. Our study has brought a new knowledge of physiologic and pathophysiologic function of these receptors. The non- selective blockade of ETA and ETB receptors by Bosentan, improves survival rate of both homozygous and heterozygous transgenic animals, declines extent of hypertensive cardiac end-organ damage and reduce proteinuria and glomeru losclerosis. However, this positive effect of nonselective endothelin blockade is not caused due to decrease of arterial blood pressure. The reason for this fact is probably in various effects of...
User alerts with real-time data monitoring for IVIS framework
Janda, Jan ; Bureš, Tomáš (advisor) ; Horký, Vojtěch (referee)
As the number of IoT devices and the size of CPS grow, the amount of critical data, which needs to be ceaselessly monitored, also increase. IVIS is a web-based data processing and visualization framework for IoT as well as CPS data and it would clearly benefit from the ability to monitor data in real time, issue alerts and send notifications. In this thesis, we extend the IVIS framework with such ability, which has not been developed for the framework yet. This extension can be used to set up an automatic monitoring of incoming data with appropriate level of detail. An emphasis is given to versatility of possible configurations. It is possible to precisely define conditions for the monitoring and rules for the notifications across a wide range of requirements. It is also important that the system has adjustable temporal stability, and therefore is not affected by outliers and random noise.
Retrospective diagnosis of unknown cause of sudden infant death
Strnadová, Kristina ; Lebl, Jan (advisor) ; Janda, Jan (referee) ; Plavka, Richard (referee) ; Vízek, Martin (referee)
Background: Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is defined as sudden unexpected death of an infant that remains unexplained after thorough post-mortem examination, investigation of the scene of death and case history. The autopsy findings and the physiological characteristics of these infants suggest a possible role of insufficient cardiorespiratory control and arousal mechanisms. The etiology is probably multifactorial based on a genetic predisposition combined with environmental factors. Several candidate genes have been studied, e.g. those involved in serotonin transport, autonomic nervous system embryology, inflammation, energy production, nicotine and glucose metabolism. A small number of cases may be caused by monogenic diseases that can lead to sudden death and leave no characteristic autopsy findings and thus imitate SIDS. Fatty acid beta-oxidation disorders (FAOD) have been associated with SIDS since 1976 and it is nowadays estimated that they may be responsible for about 1% of SIDS cases. Congenital long QT syndrome, a cardiac channelopathy, that may cause a fatal arrhythmia was a logical candidate for SIDS and indeed it was found out that about 9,5% of SIDS cases carry a mutation or a function changing variant in one of seven cardiac ion channel genes. We assumed that the severe salt...

Janda, Jan
The thesis is focused on the problematics of stream-bank vegetation and it’s devided into two parts. First, analytic part, is focused on evaluating the condition of the stream-bank vegetation of Libochůvka river. Author defines methodology of its evaluation which is afterwards applied in field study. The result of analytic part is evaluation of actual condition of stream-bank vegetation and proposal the solution of identified problems. Second part, project part, is focused on proposing of specific solutions for the river section from 37,5 to 37,9 river km, which was identify as the worst one. This part is processed as complete project documentation, which was evolved in cooperation with river manager Lesy ČR, s. p.
The influence of the hat on the acoustic characteristics of the singing voice
Janda, Jan ; JANÁL, Roman (advisor) ; KAUPOVÁ, Helena (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the objectification of acoustic changes in singing with the cover of the head. Shows the sound material used for the measurement, analyzes in detail the parts of the recording system and justifies used recording hardware. It also focuses on the subsequent digital processing of the audio signal. Subsequently, focuses on the selection of suitable acoustic characteristics in the spectral and time domains and explains how they are calculated. Based on these characteristics, it concludes that the hat influences the singer's tone in terms of volume, color and vigour.
