The Stress Response of Critical Illness: Metabolic and Hormonal Aspects


This book demonstrates how the latest insights into the physiopathology of the stress response can be integrated into clinical practice. The topic is particularly relevant since the metabolic changes triggered by acute stress, including adaptive responses such as resistance to anabolic signals, have recently been more precisely delineated. The underlying mechanisms of these changes are also now better understood. The authors analyse how these advances could result in better management and more effective prevention of the long-term clinical consequences of the alterations occurring during the acute phase. An international panel of respected experts discusses these topics and describes the management of some common clinical conditions.

By (author): Ged Byrne MB ChB MD FRCS, Jim Hill MB ChB FRCS ChM, Tim Dornan PhD DM FRCP MHPE, Paul A. O’Neill BSc(Hons) MBChB FRCP (Lon) MD FAcadMed FHEA

Although some of the stations in the book could easily be found in a “medicine” OSCE they are presented here from the perspective of both a student seeking to demonstrate well-developed surgical skills within an OSCE setting and a specialist surgical examiner.
  • Presents a series of clinical problems with an emphasis on the surgical approach to the management.
  • Appropriate for all students needing to demonstrate their clinical expertise in surgical cases.
  • A companion book to the highly-commended “Core Clinical Skills for OSCEs in Medicine”.
