Biologic rhythms in clinical and laboratory medicine
Everyone has heard of nature's "biological clocks," the phenomenon of periodic activity in plants, animals and humans. But what does chronobiology have to do with modern medicine?
This book presents in a concise but comprehensive fashion the basic principles of chronobiology and their application to clinical medicine.
The chapters are written by specialists in the field; they summarize the physiology, pathophysiology and pathology of the human time structure and outline the application of chronobiologic principles and techniques for diagnosis and treatment.
