9780323028059: Exploring Medical Language: A Student-Directed Approach, 6e

This bestselling text provides students with the basic knowledge of medical language they need to communicate clearly with other health care team members. It presents not only medical terms built from word parts, but also those not built from word parts - which are sometimes omitted from other texts. Logically organized with a body system approach, this text also provides a brief review of anatomic terminology. A wealth of exercises helps students memorize word parts and their meanings, so they'll be equipped to recognize and define new medical terms.

  • This proven approach starts with a foundation of word parts - prefixes, suffixes, and word roots - then builds words by combining the parts.
  • Also covers terms not built from word parts, and distinguishes them from those that are.
  • Chapter outlines at the beginning of each chapter list the content and page numbers, for quick and easy reference.
  • A set of 480 flashcards is packaged with the book, providing a valuable study tool.
  • An audio CD (sold separately) includes pronunciations and definitions for more than 3,000 medical terms.
  • The text, CD, flashcards, and audio CDs can be combined to form a powerful learning package for the student.
  • PowerPoint slides and lessons are included for instructors to use in the classroom.
  • Many new terms and abbreviations are added, reflecting advances in technology and changes in the health care environment.
  • Complementary and Alternative Medicine Terminology boxes are added, as part of a holistic approach to promoting health and treating disease.
  • Student CD is filled with new fun, interactive exercises and games to stimulate learning.
  • Reformatted case reports look more like actual medical records, giving students a better preview of the documents they will be viewing in a real-world clinical setting.
  • Plural endings have been moved from the appendix into the appropriate chapters, with exercises and objectives now included.
  • A pronunciation key and plurals are printed on inside front cover for quick reference.
  • Clinical Research Terms and Dietary Terms are added to the appendix, reflecting developments in these important fields.
