Overview

This innovative, "quick and easy" approach helps students quickly learn simple, basic tools for good communication in the health care environment. With the 90-minute audiotape and the practice CD-ROM included with the book, students begin to read, write, and speak medical terms in the shortest time possible. The book begins with familiar terms and builds medical terminology knowledge by progressively introducing new root words, prefixes, and suffixes. Small segments of information are presented and immediately reinforced with activities and exercises - in a body system organization that lets readers complete chapters in any order after the initial introductory chapters.
  • Programmed method of learning provides interactive, self-testing materials for immediate feedback that improves comprehension - perfect for self-study or classroom-based instruction.
  • An audiotape included with the book allows users to hear pronunciations of the terms in each chapter.
  • A practice CD-ROM included with the book provides exercises and an audio glossary of pronunciations that helps the user connect the sight and sound of a word.
  • Labeling exercises ask students to fill in blank labels on illustrations, reinforcing important information.
  • Spanish terms and pronunciations are included in each chapter to prepare the student for communicating with the Hispanic population.
  • A new chapter devoted to the integumentary system has been added, featuring full-color illustrations that help readers learn terminology related to the skin.
  • A new challenge chapter covers difficult concepts related to the nervous system and the endocrine system.
  • A full-color design and more than 100 full-color illustrations allow easier navigation within chapters and provide visual involvement with the chapter content.
  • Body system organization allows chapters to be studied in any order after the first three chapters are completed, so instructors can coordinate other course material such as anatomy and physiology with their medical terminology class.
  • Additional pharmacology content in the appendix presents clear information in a convenient format for easy reference.
  • Expanded abbreviations appendix includes more abbreviations and definitions that are key to understand medical charting and reports.

Editorial Reviews

LouAnn Schraffenberger
This book is an instructional text for medical terminology. Accompanying software is used to help the student learn to pronounce the words as well as read and write them. The purpose is to provide a text for students who must acquire an understanding of medical terminology in a short time period. The book can be used as a self-paced, independent study text or the book can be used in a classroom. The book would be useful as companion text when a student is studying anatomy and physiology or introduction to medical science. Anyone pursuing a career in allied health or medicine would find this book useful. It would also be beneficial to individuals already working in the health field to improve their knowledge of medical terminology. The book begins with an orientation to medical terminology and the use of suffixes, prefixes, and combining word forms. The subsequent chapters are organized by body system. Each chapter has substantial material in addition to programmed study sections and lists of word parts. It appears the author is successful in producing a book that could make learning medical terminology as quick and easy as reasonably possible. Various methods of learning are used, including word association programming, review exercises, and comprehensive end-of-chapter reviews that serve as a self-test. Many colorful illustrations are included. Helpful material is found in the appendixes, including medical abbreviations, pharmacologic terms, and rules for forming plurals.
Julie Hosley
This text is a brief overview of medical terminology arranged by systems and directed toward allied health students or other professionals who need a foundation in medical terminology. This is the third edition; previous editions were published in 1990 and 1995. The author has designed the book for students or for those who need to enhance comprehension of medical terms without the need for a great depth or breadth of word knowledge. This text fits admirably with other short, low intensity books currently on the market. The author has met her objective. The author directs this text toward the student or healthcare professional who needs basic word building and comprehension concepts. It is my impression that this text will be appropriate for the target audience. The author's credentials are not mentioned, and I was unable to find references, but I believe her previous texts were well received which gives her credibility that I cannot corroborate in the available material. The textbook contains well-delineated course and chapter objectives. Each chapter contains good exercises with boxes, tables, and charts to support the text. The author combines standard text with programmed exercises to enhance student participation. An unusual feature is the inclusion of Spanish-to-English and English-to-Spanish terms in the chapters. The appendixes include a section on common pharmacological terms and many current medications by trade and generic name. There is a very brief section on abbreviations; most texts at this level contain more extensive lists of common abbreviations. A CD-ROM is included and audiotapes are available. The line illustrations are adequate and appropriate, but thephoto illustrations are black-and-white and are somewhat fuzzy. The author takes a rather unusual approach of listing pronunciation of terms separately, which helps to unclutter the flow of the text. This text should fit well into a quarter course or more leisurely into one semester. It compares well with others in this category of short course material.
