Overview

Mayan Medical Aid's Medical Spanish: A Cheat Sheet, is the best Medical Spanish quick-reference tool ever created for health care workers. At 144 pages and pocket-sized, it is so rapidly useful that those who work in health care will never want to work without it again.

History: Step-by-step phrases for taking a goal-directed medical history. Don't know much Spanish? No problem. If you speak English, you can take a history from Spanish-speaking patients in minutes with this book. It is that complete and easy to use.

Physical Exam / Evaluation: Just as easy are the step-by-step phrases for performing a complete physical examination and evaluation. Do you want your patients to stand up, sit down, squat, take a deep breath and hold it, or just be quiet? No matter what your Spanish level, this book orients the physical exam and evaluation to the way you think in English.

Diagnosis: A virtual cookbook for instructing patients about numerous diagnostic issues. Want the diagnosis in technical terms? Want the diagnosis in lay terms? And want the diagnosis explained in the kind of Spanish, which your patients understand?

Medications: A whole host of medications and their explanations - from aspirin, steroids, and antibiotics to diabetic medications, anti-hypertensives, cough drops, anesthetics and many more.

Vocabulary: All of the vocabulary needed to practice good medicine is in this book: anatomy, symptoms, verbs, history, physical exam, diagnoses, medicines, and a whole host of other essential words.

As simple and utilitarian as it gets, this book has it all.
