Abstract

This paper is the first of a series describing some studies of the pathologic circulatory physiology of animals and men preceding and during traumatic shock. The paper has two purposes: (1) to introduce this series of studies on traumatic shock and relate them to other work from our laboratories and (2) to describe the initiation of some microscopically visible changes in the physical consistency of the circulating blood which are caused by mechanical injuries to tissues (cutting or crushing injuries) but which we have not yet found caused by hemorrhage alone.

The studies of the changes in the blood, vessel walls and circulation preceding and during traumatic shock which this paper introduces are a part of a larger series of studies of normal and pathologic circulatory physiology. Our colleagues and we have been carrying out microscopic studies of:
