New books received this week

Human physiology: an integrated approach / Dee Unglaub Silverthorn. 6th ed., Boston: Pearson Education, 2013.

Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach broke ground with its thorough coverage of molecular physiology seamlessly integrated into a traditional homeostasis-based systems approach. The new edition presents up-to-date coverage of new scientific discoveries, biotechnology techniques, and treatments of disorders.

Oral health and use of dental services 2008 : findings from the National Dental Telephone Interview Survey 2008. / J.F. Stewart. Canberra: Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2012.

A random sample of Australians from all states and territories were interviewed. Variations in recent dental visiting and self-reported oral health status of Australian adults aged 18 years and over are presented. Comparisons are made between age groups on the bases of: holding an Australian Government Concession card (cardholders vs. non-cardholders); usual reason for making a dental visit (check-up vs. problem); experience of financial barriers to using dental care; and remoteness area of residence.
