Experimental Surgery Including Surgical Physiology.

JAMA. 1954;155(8):799. doi:10.1001/jama.1954.03690260091036

It has become a useful reference book in the teaching of surgery, as it includes many techniques devised on animals that subsequently have been applied to man. It is generously sprinkled with illustrations and is as current as is possible. Earlier editions emphasized the physiology of the gastrointestinal tract and the circulation and experimental observations relating to physiological disturbances of these systems in man. In addition to these subjects, physiological material and surgical progress relating to the respiratory system, the heart, the great vessels, and the kidney have been added or expanded. At a time when emphasis on physiological research and teaching is shifting from total body and organ physiology to the cellular level, this book should be especially welcomed by the surgeon,
