Summary

Designed for the beginning health care student, Introduction to Medical Terminology, Second Edition, simplifies the process of learning hundreds of complex medical terms. The See and Say pronunciation system makes pronouncing unfamiliar terms easy. Because word parts are integral to learning medical terminology, mastery of these ?building blocks? is emphasized in every chapter. Organized by body system, chapters begin with an overview of the structures and functions of that system so you can relate these to the specialties, pathology, diagnostic, and treatment procedures that follow. A workbook offers word part and comprehensive medical terminology reviews, flashcards, and learning exercises in a variety of formats that require written answers.
