A knowledge of medical terminology is essential for employment in many health care professions. This attractive and easy to use self-teaching text provides a simple, interactive and comprehensive guide to the language of medicine. Following a brief introduction to the basic components of medical words, each unit deals with a different body system and follows a standard plan: word exercises; an anatomy exercise based on an illustration; a case history; medical notes; a word check; a self assessment. By breaking words into their component parts and applying knowledge through exercises and examples from patient care, the reader learns how words are formed and becomes familiar with the common roots and suffixes of medical words as well as how they will be encountered in practice. In addition the text provides a comprehensive glossary and a list of common abbreviations.
