Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: James M Krizanek, A.A.S.(William Beaumont Hospitals)
Description: In its fifth edition, this medical dictionary continues to be an outstanding resource for healthcare professionals and students alike. This book contains high quality color images, written pronunciations for each medical term, informative appendixes, anatomical charts, and two CD-ROMs. This edition proves to be as valued a resource as the fourth edition published in 2001.
Purpose: This book continues its high standards in educating students and healthcare professionals. It is a valuable resource for every healthcare professional and student. The author's objectives in this revised edition are met.
Audience: Stedman's has long been a standard in the healthcare industry. In this edition, the author includes emergency medical services, medical transcription, massage therapy, and nursing disciplines. It continues to be a valuable resource for students as well. Although the author's goal is to be inclusive of all healthcare professions, it is odd that the title this time segregates out nursing from health professions. The author states, "we have no intention of steering away from our readership of health professionals (of which we consider nursing a part)...." The author is an expert in his field.
Features: This book is not just a typical medical dictionary. It also offers color illustrations, an anatomical chart, two CD-ROMs containing a digitized copy of the book and Primal 3D Anatomy, homeopathy, as well as appendixes which include infection control, lab values, body mass and body surface calculations, patient assessment and care, drug information of commonly prescribed drugs, diet & nutrition, and professional information and organizations. It is an exhaustive resource of information and is more of an encyclopedia of information than a mere dictionary.
Assessment: This edition includes 500 more images than its predecessor. The anatomy inserts have also been upgraded with higher quality color images from the Anatomical Chart Company. The imaging and diagnostic inserts have doubled in length and now incorporate nearly 300 images. Over 100 dermatological images have been added within the dictionary portion of the book. Other changes include written pronunciations with every term and spoken pronunciations on the accompanying CD-ROM. Some 30 new appendixes include lists, tables, and scales to provide fingertip information for students, educators, and healthcare practitioners in the classroom, laboratory, hospital, and clinical setting. Students and healthcare professionals alike will find these updates a valuable reference. For future editions, the author may want to consider either restoring the all-inclusive title of "Health Professions," or perhaps substituting the term "Healthcare Professionals.
