Summary

Making a Splash The breadth is excellent, and this book includes innovative teaching tools not available in other texts. Ann Minks, Lake Washington Technical College The writing style is great. It is light, easy to read and understand. Karin Sherrill, Mesa Community College I LOVE integrating the word building into each chapter. I think it will make the word building much more relevant to students. Tricia Berry, Hamilton College I have students ranging in age from 18 to 50s. It would be hard to find a writing style to fit them all, but I feel this book would do the job. Judy Anderson, Coastal Carolina Community College The illustrations and photos are awesome. Cynthia Thompson, Alamance Community College The author takes the medical terminology textbook up another level. James Hudacek, Lorain County Community College It is geared to the whole person rather than just a clinical approach to anatomy and physiology. Itrs"s the "rest of the story" that adds the interest and gives depth. Juanita R. Bryant, Cabrillo College and Sierra College Excellent book. Paula Hagstrom, Ferris State University The wide diversity of subjects in the photos, and the excellent diversity of artwork was way beyond my expectations. Most books do not use enough visuals to break up the written word, but I think this text is generous in the use of color and visuals. Susan Buboltz , Madison Area Technical College Exactly what we were looking for. Ruth Ann Ors"Brien,

Excerpts

SOMETHING DIFFERENT You may have already noticed that there is something different about this book. Perhaps by examining the cover and thumbing through the pages, you have taken note of the abundance of real-world images. Maybe you have discovered some of the practice exercises that abound within these pages, placing you in the hypothetical role of an actual health care provider. Or perhaps you have already begun exploring the revolutionary CD-ROM that is packaged inside the back cover, rich with highly engaging and interactive activities that add a unique dimension to your learning. As you begin this exciting and important journey into the world of medicine we offer you a single promisethat you will soon become immersed in a new, exciting experience. And therefore we feel it is fitting for this textbook to follow suit. As a healthcare professional you will never be sitting on the sidelines. Your hard work, knowledge, competence, and interpersonal skills will have a direct impact on patient services throughout your career. Therefore it is with this spirit that we wish to empower you to affect others with the fruits of your learning. And thus, we encourage you to immerse yourself in the language and culture of healthcare. THE TITLE OF THIS BOOK As part of your training, you will learn how to construct and deconstruct medical terms using their basic elements, called word parts. So let us start at the beginning by examining the title of this book, Medical Language. Medical Medicine is the drama of life and death, and few subjects are as compelling, profound, or worthy of study. This book is about real medicine. As you know, real medicine affects real patientstheir lives, their families, and their futures. As a health professional, no matter which aspect of patient care you touch, you will have great responsibilities. Therefore, we feel it is our responsibility to provide you with as realistic a view possible of medicine today. Here are some examples of how we have done this: The majority of the images in this book incorporate medical illustrations and photographs that include a diverse array of real people, instead of cartoon- like illustrations. Among the many features on the accompanying CD-ROM, you will find an exercise called Medical Language Spoken Here that challenges you to listen to and interpret authentic physician dictation courtesy of Health Professions Institute, creator of the SUM program and a leader in the medical transcription industry. Instructors who require this book will have access to a collection Real People, Real Medicine videos that were filmed in association with this book to profile a variety of health care workers on the job. As part of our respect for real medicine, and the importance of getting it right the first time, we have made a commitment to accuracy. The author draws on her 30 years of experience as a nurse, medical transcriptionist, health information manager, and educator to provide accurate and complete information throughout. We have also engaged the technical editing services of XX physician specialists who have carefully reviewed the chapters that correspond to their respective practices. Language A language is a method of communicating and an expression of the people, events, and culture it represents. This book is about the language of medicine. As opposed to simply memorizing vocabulary words, the complete experience that this book offers is the opportunity to embrace the world of medicine, just as if you were learning a foreign language. Like traveling to Tokyo for a year to learn Japanese, the goal here is for you to become immersed in the sights, sounds, and even the tastes and smells of a new culture. This book surrounds you with context that brings the words to life. A LIVING LANGUAGE You will not be a passive reader of this book. Instead, you will be challenged to listen, speak, write, watch, respond, examine,
