  • Alvise Berengo
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 9)


The present status of diagnosis and treatment of shock in internal medicine will be discussed here in front of pathogenetic, bioche-mico-pathological and pharmacological progress in shock research. The report will be grounded on the clinical experience got in two decades in several Medical Clinics (Istituto di Patologia Medica and Istituto di Clinica Medica Generale, University of Modena; Istituto di Patologia Medica, University of Siena; Istituto di Patologia Medica I, University of Milan, Italy). Further data have been obtained courtesy of several colleagues (University of Milan) and, with reference to septic and allergic shock of Prof. C. Zanussi (Head of the Institute for Infectious Diseases, University of Milan).
