Endocrinology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Acute Endocrinology
From Cause to Consequence
edited by Greet Van den Berghe

Acute Endocrinology compiles new findings in the integration of endocrinology in critical care medicine into an important and highly relevant new resource.

Part one deals with the classical life-threatening illnesses caused by primary endocrine diseases such as:

  • thyrotoxicosis
  • hypothyroidism
  • acute adrenal crisis
  • acute calcium disorders
  • pheochromocytoma
  • severe hyper- and hypoglycemia

Part two looks at endocrinology from the ICU side, starting with a general overview of the dynamic neuroendocrine and metabolic stress responses in the condition of intensive care-dependent, non-endocrine critical illness.

Acute Endocrinology provides a unique and up-to-date overview of the joining of these two disciplines and seeks to stimulate further interdisciplinary research in this important and exciting field.
