About this book


This unique volume covers the physiological responses and adaptations to hypoxia, the deficiency or absence of oxygen. These responses may occur at any level of an organism, from the mitochondria to organ systems, to the whole animal. The book emphasizes the molecular and cellular mechanisms, then integrates these responses in the context of organ and systems physiology, providing a useful reference for physiologists and other blood biologists, as well as pulmonary physicians
