Description: OTA paper 2004:We report the nature of the early stress response in an ovine model of high-energy injury which more closely replicates the clinical situation of major trauma. Our hypothesis was that the immediate stress response to trauma is characteristic, and its magnitude is governed by the initial injury and subsequent surgical management.
