    • Analysis of homeostatic effects of buffering levels in a human ventricle computational model 

      Bertomeu Diaz, Oriol (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-07-13)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   University of Leeds
      In this thesis we have studied the impact of changing buffering levels in cardiac homeostasis. The heart works by pumping blood through the body by beating. This beating motion originates in the cyclical contraction and ...
    • Analysis of homestatic regulation in cardiac cells 

      Conesa Ortega, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Calcium ions play a leading role in heart contraction. Heart beats at a pace given by the sinoatrial node where an action potential is generated, then propagated to the rest of cardiac cells. Contractile force depends on ...
    • Control of calcium homeostasis and load regulation in a ventricular Z- Plane model 

      Martin de Pablo, Luis (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Calcium is considered one of the most important ions involved in the intricate workings of the heart. The control of intracellular calcium is crucial to the process called excitation-contraction coupling, enabling the ...
    • Databases integration and model assessment for Covid-19 prediction and visualization based on AI algorithms 

      López Cano, Ma. Cayetana (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-06-30)
      Bachelor thesis

    • Development of a cardiac model for the study of sudden cardiac death in infants 

      Alonso García-Cabezón, Mateo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-09-15)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      The Sudden Unexpected Death of an Infant (SUDI) is the unforeseen death of a newborn less than 12 months old. A mutation was discovered in a number of cases of SUDI that affects the protein troponin (Tn) present in ...
    • Rehabilitació eco eficient d'un habitatge unifamiliar 

      Quiles i Nogués, Rubèn (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      El present projecte té per objectiu satisfer les demandes de rehabilitació dels propietaris de la Vila Margarita, una casa unifamiliar de finals dels anys seixanta situada al barri de Montmar de la població de Castelldefels. ...
    • Simulation of a calcium release unit in a cardiomyocite to study pulsus alternans 

      Sanchis, Guillem (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      In cardiac cells, the contraction is driven by the release of Ca2+ ions from the sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR). This happens across the cell in thousands of calcium release units (CaRU), which are sets of clusters of different ...
    • The Role of Temperature and Humidity in the Early Evolution of SARS CoV-2 

      Bravo, Andrea; Fernández, Lucas; Nicolau, Sebastià (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-06)
      Coursework
      Open Access
      The new coronavirus SARS CoV-2 which causes the COVID-19 was declared as a global pandemic at 11 of March 2020. Since then, many studies have been conducted in order to determine the importance of environmental factors,mainly ...
