An approach to understanding the metabolic derangements found in the critically ill, this book attempts to place the role of clinical biochemistry in context. It begins with a brief description of the cellular consequences of shock defined as an interruption in the delivery of nutrients to and metabolites from the cell. From there, the effects of shock are extended to individual organs and finally to the patient as a whole in the form of case studies.
