International Archives of Clinical Physiology is an open access, peer reviewed multidisciplinary journal focusing on diagnosing disorders of various organs and systems in the body such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal, peripheral vessels, and urinary tract. The research is dedicated to develop the evaluations of a number of pathologic processes. All the Published articles are peer reviewed, and upon editorial acceptance are made available for readers to download and read online.
The journal accepts various types of manuscripts such as research, review, cases, clinical images, communications, etc to gather vast information on aspects of clinical physiology. The topic focus includes the concepts of clinical physiology of exercise in pregnancy, clinical physiology and pharmacology, clinical physiology of respiration and respiratory diseases, medical physiology, clinical physiology of the venous system, critical care physiology, reproductive physiology, human physiology, anatomy-physiology, physiology of sleep, pathological physiology, clinical electrophysiology, exercise physiology and cardiac rehabilitation, healthcare science and physiology, physiology of the eye, etc.

The severity of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) may be categorised in a number of ways and utilising one of a range of presently available grading tools. The grading systems proposed by Bland and Padua, et al. are most commonly used. However, both are not without limitations, which are discussed comprehensively in this paper. The aim of this research is to establish, using best available evidence, a clinically appropriate revision of the current CTS nerve conduction grading tool and to evaluate its...

Many patients have persistent and recurring GI symptoms attributed to the digestive system. The Rome criteria, a classification of the functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs) has been proposed, for FGIDS not associated to any structural or biochemical abnormalities. These disorders can affect any part of the GI tract (esophagus, stomach, colon, terminal intestine). FGIDs are not psychiatric disorders, although stress and psychological difficulties can make FGIDs worse. There are three prim...

The psychopathology of delusions has been indelibly denoted from top-bottom theories, with a very long psychiatric tradition explaining the issue as a cortical derangement. The reverse face of the entire issue has been poorly if ever, scrutinized. The role of the peripheral nervous system in the installing and the maintaining of delusive ideas and convictions, albeit elusive, need to be addressed. The hallmark of bottom-up theory relies upon distorted primary processing of peripheral stimuli, wi...

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) has been employed for more than four decades. A crucial concern is the etiology of infertility due to the fact that it may range widely, from reproductive system anatomy and endometrium receptivity to multisystem disorders and several immunologic factors. Among the immune pathologies that could compromise fertility are the autoantibodies affecting thyroid function. Infertile women are in a great prevalence of thyroid autoimmune disorders. However, there are still uns...

The interest in the human body physiological capacity to adapt to extreme heat and cold conditions has increased enormously in the last few decades because of global warming and the consequent changing temperatures. The human body has multiple thermoregulatory mechanisms to counter the external extreme temperatures whose main objective is to keep temperature homeostasis within normal values. As exposure time to these stressful conditions increases and the external temperature becomes even more e...
