Overview

This is a must-have, on-the-spot, quick reference tool for medical terminology. Medical terms, especially multisyllabic ones such as laryngotracheobronchitis, can be overwhelming, but with this quick reference, definitions are easy to find and understand. And the information is made handy anytime and anywhere! Features Alphabetical order of terms makes it easy to search for information. Terms using the same word element are "chunked" together to make them easier to learn and remember. Comprehensive appendices provide common prefixes and suffixes, rules for forming plurals, a pronunciation table and illustrations. An easy-to-learn system is provided to help the user analyze medical words into their word elements (prefixes, roots, suffixes) then define and combine the elements to determine definitions. Memory Keys associate words and word elements with interesting facts about their derivation throughout the book.
