Abstract

Stress response can be physical and psychological. Physiological responses to stress, such as a major trauma, stimulate the sympathetic nervous system. The response, although necessary to maintain life, is harmful when prolonged. Nursing and medical management is directed at controlling the etiology and reversing the side effects seen in the body organs. The physical response to stressors shall be explored in this article.
