For college-level courses in medical terminology.
This clear, concise, and conversational book teaches the most current and accepted language of healthcare, using a self-guided “programmed learning” approach that has helped thousands of students prepare for health careers. It emphasizes the medical terms used most commonly by hospitals and clinics, while providing only essential information on anatomy and physiology. Discussions are supported by accurate and compelling illustrations and photographs throughout, including many new images. Questions are provided both within and after each chapter, and many medical reports and case studies are provided to enable students to apply what they’ve learned. This edition has been improved with even more sample reports and case studies; expanded coverage of sight and hearing; and robust interactive tools online.
