Overview

Since the first edition of Medical Terminology: A Living Language was published it has been noted for its “clean” and logical format that promotes a seemless learning experience. The Fourth Edition provides users with a consistent and logical system to help them build their understanding of medical terminology as it relates to the human body. This book maintains a real-world focus that relates medical terminology to various health professions, thereby capturing the users interest and providing information about potential future health careers. This information is reinforced with some key new features such as : an all-new art program carefully crafted by a medically trained illustrator; the System At A Glance chapter-opening feature which provides a quick reference for each topic being discussed in terms of its function, organs, combining forms, suffixes, and prefixes; the pharmacology tables which have been expanded to include commonly used generic and brand names; and much more.
