In the current Focus Issue of the Journal of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine our aim was to invite some of the leading researchers in the field of applied physiology in perioperative medicine. We are covering issues starting from defining the high-risk patient, down to the deep secrets of the mitochondria. Applying a physiology- and also the evidence-based approach at the bedside is not the exclusive privilege of researchers but should be the duty of every physician in the future.
