About this deal

I did not run into any significant interface issues, but some of the images are slightly distorted. Only selected chapters/sections were examined for the purposes of this review. Several issues were identified in the Cardiac Physiology section (6.4). For example, the authors write that during exercise, “as [heart rate] HR continues to increase, [stroke volume] SV gradually decreases due to decreased filling time.” This is incorrect. During incremental exercise, in relatively untrained adults stroke volume initially increases and then plateaus while heart rate continues to increase, but in endurance trained athletes, while the magnitude of increase in stroke volume is greatest in the early stages, stroke volume continues to increase throughout exercise (ref: Exp Physiol 2002 Sep;87(5):613-22 // J Appl Physiol 2008 Jan;104(1):276-8). Further, to estimate maximal heart rate, the authors refer to the 220-age equation. This equation is generally considered inferior to the Tanaka equation (208-(0.7 x age)) (ref: J Am Coll Cardiol 2001 Jan;37(1):153-6).

The book contains most of the chapters one might expect to find in a good Anatomy and Physiology text. Conspicuous by its absence, the book does not contain a detailed chapter devoted to metabolism. Broken down into typical systems-based chapters, a style used in many textbooks. This makes it easy for students to follow.

Formats Available

Content was presented at a basic level suitable for an undergraduate course. It is unlikely that at this level, it will need to be revised too much in the foreseeable future.

All typical organ systems are covered. I especially liked that there was a chapter devoted to pregnancy and human development.

Conditions of Use

Whereas anatomy is about structure, physiology is about function. Human physiology is the scientific study of the chemistry and physics of the structures of the body and the ways in which they work together to support the functions of life. Much of the study of physiology centres on the body’s tendency toward homeostasis. Homeostasis is the state of steady internal conditions maintained by living things. The study of physiology certainly includes observation, both with the naked eye and with microscopes, as well as manipulations and measurements. However, current advances in physiology usually depend on carefully designed laboratory experiments that reveal the functions of the many structures and chemical compounds that make up the human body.

Like most scientific disciplines, anatomy has areas of specialisation. Gross anatomy is the study of the larger structures of the body, those visible without the aid of magnification (Figure 1.1.1a). Macro- means “large,” thus, gross anatomy is also referred to as macroscopic anatomy. In contrast, micro- means “small,” and microscopic anatomy is the study of structures that can be observed only with the use of a microscope or other magnification devices (Figure 1.1.1b). Microscopic anatomy includes cytology, the study of cells and histology, the study of tissues. As the technology of microscopes has advanced, anatomists have been able to observe smaller and smaller structures of the body, from slices of large structures like the heart, to the three-dimensional structures of large molecules in the body. The text does not appear to culturally insensitive or offensive. Many of the photographs used to support the learning objectives include people of a variety of races.

I did not find any real grammatical issues. I did find some spelling issues (not really errors), but I am an American reviewing this Australian textbook.
