Physiologic Principles of Surgery

JAMA. 1957;164(11):1287. doi:10.1001/jama.1957.02980110113021

The senior editor, a surgeon, and the co-editor, a physiologist, have combined their resources in this book. Forty-eight corroborators have been carefully selected. Each corroborator was asked by the editors to appraise critically our present knowledge of physiological processes and to apply such information to surgery. The practical application of physiological principles has been stressed. The assignments have been faithfully carried out. Recognizing the hazards of multiple authorship, the editors overcame them by means of careful editing and well-placed editorial comments. The book deals with metabolic changes associated with injury, infections and antibiotics, thermal and radiation injuries, transplantation of tissues, hemorrhage and shock, blood transfusion, body fluids and electrolytes, nutrition in surgery, significance of plasma proteins in surgical practice, surgery of the newborn, pain, anesthesia, congenital heart disease, acquired cardiac lesions, the basis for surgical treatment of hypertension, peripheral arterial vascular disorders, venous and lymphatic systems, respiratory tract, the esophagus,
