Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Steven K. Hamick, BIS, RCP, RRT (William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: In the tradition of its predecessors, this sixth edition of Stedman's illustrated dictionary continues to be an excellent and comprehensive resource for both healthcare professionals and students. This edition updates the previous fifth edition published in 2005.
Purpose: Stedman's was first published as Dunglison's New Dictionary of Medical Science and Literature in 1833 and has a long tradition of excellence. The authors were diligent to continue this tradition and to provide readers with the most comprehensive dictionary to date. The authors have met their objectives.
Audience: The dictionary is intended for students, educators, and practitioners, particularly in the fields of athletic training, embryology, exercise science, health information management, massage therapy, medical assisting, medical transcription, occupational therapy, nursing, pharmacy/pharmacy technology, and weapons of mass destruction/mass casualty weapons/bioterrorism. There is an exhaustive list of consultants and reviewers who are experts in their respective fields.
Features: This revised edition features 54,000 terms and over 900 illustrations which include anatomy inserts. New features include more than 4,000 additional entries, three appendixes and a revised CD-ROM which includes audio pronunciations of over 48,000 terms and the Stedman's Plus Spellchecker. The Spellchecker has been a tool for medical language specialists for nearly 15 years and traditionally sold for $99.95.
Assessment: As a medical dictionary with terms and illustrations, it is outstanding. However, the appendix tends to stray from the scope of the traditional Stedman's. An example is the hefty 149 pages dedicated to nursing theories, nursing diagnoses, Nursing Intervention Classifications, and Nursing Outcomes Classification - which is beyond the scope of a medical dictionary and whose cost of inclusion could be looked upon as being passed on to students/practitioners in the other health professions. For future revisions, it is hoped the authors consider a nondisciplinary, healthcare team-oriented approach to be in step with today's clinical team-based approach in healthcare. Keystone and IHI's 100,000 Lives campaign are examples, with more team-based initiatives on the horizon.

    Bought it to help with school.

    I bought this book to help with my medical terminalogy class and will use it for my other classes too. It was very helpful.
