The effect of environment on the response to injury in the rat
  1. H. B. Stoner


    Recent work on the effect of changes in the environmental temperature on the local and general response to injury is discussed.

    Both the acute and delayed responses to injury are affected by changes in environmental temperature.

    Thermoregulation in the rat is impaired by an injury and there is an optimum temperature for survival after the injury.

    The acute response to injury in the rat is also affected by the animal's previous environmental history.

    The increased sensitivity to catecholamines produced by cold acclimation alters some of the initial responses.
