about

The first Wiggers Bernard Conference on Shock, Sepsis and Organ Failure, named after two outstanding scientists in shock research and experimental medicine, took an interdisciplinary approach to addressing three questions, in hopes of gaining new perspective in understanding the development of the multi-organ failure syndrome. 1. Multi-organ failure - Is it a sequence of organ failures or a systemic disease? 2. Cellular events in trauma and sepsis - Are they due to suppression, activation or both? 3. Mediators of organ failure - Are LPS or sepsis necessary? Nineteen experts attempted to answer these questions by exploring all aspects in intense discussions. These, together with the actual lectures, are reproduced in this book. The topics include humoral and cellular activation mechanisms, immunosuppression, metabolic responses, source and action of endotoxin (including the release of cytokines, oxygen radicals and proteinases). This book updates basic and clinical information on the state-of-the-art of the pathophysiology of multi-organ failure. Both clinicians and scientists concerned with basic research will find it to be a valuable source.
