Overview

A proven and unique combination of learning principles and exercises, this highly acclaimed book continues to get better! Medical Terminology for Health Professions, Sixth Edition, simplifies the process of learning hundreds of complex medical terms. The See and Say pronunciation system makes pronouncing unfamiliar terms easy. Because word parts are integral to learning medical terminology, mastery of these "building blocks" is emphasized in every chapter. Organized by body system, chapters begin with an overview of the structures and functions of that system so you can relate these to the specialists, pathology, diagnostic, and treatment procedures that follow. Learning Exercises in each chapter offer a variety of formats that require written answers. Writing terms reinforces learning and provides practice to help master spelling and enhance comprehension.

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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: This excellent update to the 2004 edition incorporates 75 new medical terms, a new simplified syllabus, and learning supplements, including flash cards and CD-ROM.
Purpose: The book is designed to help readers quickly master medical terminology through a combination of text and accompanying teaching materials. Given the continual evolution of healthcare, the book is a necessary update.
Audience: Although intended for healthcare students, this book will also be helpful for laypersons interested in learning medical terms.
Features: The book is organized into 15 chapters, a word part review, a comprehensive review section, two appendixes, index, flash cards, and pronunciation CD-ROM. The first two chapters are an introduction to medical terminology with word parts review. Successive chapters are organized by body system, analogous to an anatomy text. The final chapter finishes with diagnostic procedures and pharmacology. The book is chockfull of tables, images, critical thinking, and learning exercises. Its strength lies in the many illustrations and exercises that reinforce concepts.
Assessment: This excellent book continues its tradition of high standards. It would be a valued asset in any program requiring medical terminology as well as for public and college/university libraries.

This is a general medical terminology modular learning tool designed to assist the student in learning medical terminology. It contains 16 chapters, three appendixes, flash cards, and a diskette. The purpose of this book is to provide the student with an understanding of medical terminology. The objectives are clearly met by the author. This is a much-needed set of objectives in the healthcare arena. This book is designed for nursing students and could easily be used by allied health students in all fields. The book is also easy to use as a refresher for those who are in practice. This book is filled with very colorful illustrations related to anatomy, physiology, and various diagnostic procedures. Color is also used to help distinguish and put together various words. The table of contents and index are complete. Appendices are very useful and include a very comprehensive glossary of pathology and procedures, prefixes and suffixes, and abbreviations with meanings. Flash cards and a diskette make it very friendly for those who need additional review. This is the third edition of this book, and an excellent learning tool for nursing and allied health students at all levels. The book is easy to use when review is needed for only one body system area as a refresher. The overall design and format are very easy to follow. Excellent learning exercises are provided in a number of different formats such as short answer, true/false, and multiple choice items. This colorful book is one that students can enjoy using and easily follow the instructions. Bookstores should definitely invest in this book.

This is the second edition of this excellent introductory textbook in medical terminology (first edition, 1988). The book is accompanied by audiotapes and individual activities for students and an instructor's guide, computerized test bank, overhead transparencies, and classroom activities for instructors. The purpose is to introduce students of health professions to medical terminology through word parts, then body systems. This purpose is served well because the text is easy to read, color is used to highlight terms, there are many color illustrations, and the audiotapes assist pronunciation. The book is appropriate for nursing and allied health students beginning to learn medical terminology. This text features many full color anatomical drawings in great detail, very helpful in learning medical terminology. This attractive, spiral-bound book uses color to highlight terms and headings. Students will appreciate the good amount of explanatory material, appendixes for word parts and abbreviations, and flash cards. Each chapter has exercises and a list of words to use with the audiotapes. The audiotapes are clear and pronounce and define 50 to 75 difficult terms for each chapter. Excellent organization and physical presentation are the outstanding characteristics of this text. The extra resources that accompany the book make it an excellent teaching text for both students and instructors. Word parts and a review self-test before introducing body system chapters reinforce the importance of learning the basics. Body system chapters are thorough and cover structures, pathology, procedures, and medications. The new edition is better organized, with subheadings, chapter outlines, and up datesof terms.

    Great Text Book for newcomers to medical field and health care professionals looking for a good review.

    Medical Terminology for Health Professionals is very well organized by body systems. The information is presented as it relates to not only the intigral parts of the systems but the disease processes, the diagnosis, and the treatment. That information is a great learning tool for terminology because it relates to actual situations. The learning exercises at the end of each section are reviews of not only the current section but prior sections and presented in different formats to reinforce learning in a progressive manner which also includes review. The pronunciation overview at the beginning of each section is especially useful in learning the proper pronunciation and also is a review of the terminology anatomy (word parts). I am including this text in my reference library.

    Very confusing

    I was very disappointed in the layout of this text. It was very confusing and covered too much information in each chapter. Intermingling terminology and word parts with body systems was overwhelming. I think if they would have covered word parts at the beginning of each chapter and then introduced body systems would have put things in better perspective. The class moved along at one chapter per week which was barely enough time to get down adequately everything each chapter covered.

    What a sorry textbook

    Content: If this is representative of medical textbooks, I'm scared. This sixth edition is riddled with errors throughout the text, in the quizzes, the accompanying CD and the matching workbook. Very confusing for the beginning student (to which it is geared), but could be a quite fun project for an expert to comb through for the errata. Or not. Incredibly poorly proofed and edited, and therefore overpriced. It is a terminology book; however, by the fifth chapter I was sick of the phrase "is known as," among others.

    Design: Thin, wimpy paper and spiral-binding do not mix. Great care must be taken while using this book not to totally wreak it. Gingerly turn each page. Transport in a sturdy cover of some kind. Passable for home study maybe, but by the end of a semester carrying this back and forth to school, it will be a mess. Very low inherent resale value thus.

    Printing: Several pages were not cut properly in the printing process and had to be manually separated and trimmed to size.
