Carbohydrate Metabolism in Shock Resistance
At the annual meeting of the Hungarian Society of Physiological Sciences (1970) we reported on the results of our earlier investigation dealing with the carbohydrate metabolism in shock. It has been shown by Karady et al., (1948, 1961) that numerous changes found in shock do not occur or are modified in the so-called “stage of resistance”. Therefore it seemed to us interesting and worthwhile to investigate the carbohydrate metabolism in rats rendered resistant to shock, that is in rats 24 hr after having been exposed to sublethal tourniquet shock (“stage of non-specific resistance”). In these experiments we confirmed the changes in carbohydrate metabolism found by us (1970) to be characteristic of shock and established that those changes failed to occur in the stage of non-specific resistance.
