Abstract : This final report covers studies in surgical metabolism, the biochemistry of convalescence from severe injury, the case of the injured, the care of the wounded, and covers both practical, clinical and theoretical research aspects. Most of the work has been carried out as clinical investigation (i.e. studies in man). A few ancillary studies in animals have been used to illuminate special problems. Studies include the following: (1) Substrate utilization, substrate interaction and the endocrine effects observed in intravenous feeding after injury; (2) The use of isotopes of nitrogen and hydrogen in substrate research in man; (3) The pathophysiology of burns with particular respect to lung injury; computer modelling in burns; acute hemorrhage in normal man as an acute trauma model; (4) Synthesis of knowledge in this field for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching of surgical care.
