An illustrated, easy-to-understand approach presents medical terms within the context of the body's anatomy and physiology, and in health and disease.

  • Simple, clear, non-technical explanations demystify medical terminology even if you have little or no background in medicine or science.
  • More than 500 full-color illustrations depict the details of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, putting medical terms in the context of the structure and function of the body system.

  • Pronunciation of Terms at the end of each chapter include phonetic spellings and spaces to write the meanings of terms.
  • Abbreviations of terminology make it easy to learn the medical shorthand used in clinical practice.
  • Error-prone abbreviations list derived from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) list alerts you to abbreviations that should not be used in the clinical setting.
  • Comprehensive glossaries and appendices serve as quick references for use in the classroom and on the job.
  • An Evolve companion website lets you practice word parts and building terms with interactive word games, learning exercises, an audio glossary with pronunciations of over 3,000 terms, animations, an anatomy coloring book, electronic flash cards, and more.
  • NEW terms and procedures keep you up to date with healthcare advances.
