Overview

Using a consistent, logical, and step-by-step approach, MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY: A LIVING LANGUAGE, 5/e introduces students to the anatomy and physiology of body systems and the corresponding medical terms related to them. For each body system, broad coverage of anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnostic procedures, treatment procedures, and pharmacology is provided. The author emphasizes both terms built from Latin and Greek word parts, and modern English terms, helping students develop a full working word part vocabulary they can use to interpret any new term. This edition contains many new terms, and has been reorganized for more efficient learning. To eliminate confusion, Word Building tables have been removed from each chapter and the terms have been distributed throughout the pathology, diagnostic procedure, and treatment procedure tables, where they are more immediately relevant to students.

    Medical Terminology

    I found this book to be laid out a lot better than a previous Medical Terminology book that I have used for school. It is well organized and very useful. The disc that comes with the book is a great resource to study from.

    Medical Terminology

    This book is very informative, and concise. The photographs were colorful and I was able to view the anatomy clearly. The DVD is a great teaching tool!

    Excellent breakdown of Medical Terminology!

    This was a very good book for anyone learning or needing to brush up on their medical terminology. It gives very good brief descriptions of body systems in each unit. You really understand the meaning of the words after using this book. It is much easier than trying to remember the whole word and definition. Excellent for anyone taking a physical science course or preparing to become a nursing student. It pays to learn this information.

    Excellent,practice,review for laymen

    This product was used as a primary textbook in Med Termnology (accelerated-6 week)) entry level short term certificate class at a community college. I presume that this text was chosen because of its ability to be understandable for non-medical people,medical customer serice related people, older people who are 2nd career transition people. I have not used this text on-line. I plan to keep this text as a reference book for coming medical billing clases.
