Overview

The Language of Medicine demonstrates the author's unique method of teaching, in which students learn how to divide complex medical terms into their component parts. The meanings of these terms are carefully described in the context of how the body works in health and disease. In a workbook format, the first four chapters introduce word analysis and terminology from the body as a whole. Subsequent chapters focus on a body system or medical specialty. Laboratory tests, clinical procedures, medical reports, and practical applications are included throughout the text. Students learn to master the medical language through word analysis and seeing terminology in action. Terminology and complex medical processes are presented in an easy-to-understand manner, readily accessible to students of all levels.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care)
Description: This medical terminology textbook has numerous resources available for the course instructor to accompany the text.
Purpose: The purpose is to emphasize explanation of medical terminology rather than mere memorization of terms.
Audience: The audience is anyone who wants to learn medical terminology. The publisher also considers all medical terminology teachers to be an audience. A variety of products are available from the publisher to help the teacher. The author wrote the first edition of this book in 1976 and continues to refine and improve each new edition.
Features: The book contains 22 chapters. Four chapters are devoted to essential word building skills. The other chapters are intended to explain terminology and disease pathology for each body system. Each chapter has practical applications, such as sample medical records, exercises, and laboratory tests related to the organ system. Four chapters explain information related to oncology, radiology, pharmacology, and psychiatry.
Assessment: The strength of this book is the fact it is more than a medical terminology book. Each part is described with a review of anatomy and physiology, vocabulary, abnormal conditions, clinical procedures, and abbreviations related to it. Lots of exercises help the student focus on the subject matter. Teachers will like all the resources available to them, including an instructor's manual, audiotapes, software discs, computerized test bank, and color transparencies. All of the above make this book first rate.
