Description

This book covers the physiological responses and adaptations to hypoxia, the deficiency or absence of oxygen. These responses may occur at any level of an organism, from the mitochondria to organ systems, to the whole animal. This volume is unique in that while it emphasizes the molecular and cellular mechanisms, it then integrates these responses in the context of organ and systems physiology. The book is loosely based on a four-part symposium held at FASEB, sponsored by theAmerican Physiological Society.show more
