Advances in Physiological Sciences, Volume 26: Homeostasis in Injury and Shock covers the proceedings of Homeostasis in Injury and Shock, which is a satellite symposium of the 28th International Congress of Physiological Sciences. This book discusses several studies that are relevant in understanding the nature of injury and shock. Topics include thermoregulation after trauma; neuroendocrine responses to injury and shock; and effect of injury and infection on visceral metabolism and circulation. Medical practitioners will find great interest in this book, since it covers the physiological implications of tissue damage.
