From the Back Cover:

Talk the talk! Medical terms demystified

The first step toward working successfully in the booming allied health field, perhaps as a nurse, record keeper, or insurance biller -- or simply being able to take a more proactive role in your own healthcare -- is mastering the language. In Medical Terminology Demystified, Dr. Dale Layman -- a multi-award-winning educator -- gives you a fast, easy, and practical way to learn the terms medical professionals use to describe and deal with disease and injury, surgical techniques, drugs and other therapies, and more.

You needn't have been a star science pupil to benefit from this path-smoothing guide! Medical Terminology Demystified packs the perfect combination of learning tools. Work at your own comfortable pace with in-depth medical information described in easy-to-understand language, helpful icons, and hundreds of topic-clarifying illustrations. Fill-in-the-blank and exam questions and answers provide quick and handy learning "check-ups" so you can measure your progress.

If you want to achieve mastery of the medical field's concepts and defining terminology, here's the self-teaching course that does the job fast. Get ready to:

  • Learn all the proper terms used in the context of diagnosis...anesthesia and surgery...microbiology and infectious diseases...therapeutics
  • Acquire everyday familiarity with formal medical terminology related to the cell and lymphatic systems; skeletal and muscular systems; heart and blood vessels; respiratory system; glands and skin; neurologic and psychiatric disorders; eyes and ears; the digestive tract; the urogenital system
  • Understand and be able to use with confidence terms associated with fertilization, pregnancy, and birth
  • Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

Medical Terminology Demystified is a lively, effective shortcut to learning and using medical terminology like a pro!
