easy-to-understand approach presents medical terms within the
context of the body's anatomy and physiology, and in health and
disease. With this proven resource, you'll learn a working medical
vocabulary built on the most frequently encountered prefixes,
suffixes, and combining forms. Practical exercises and case studies
make learning more interesting and demonstrate how medical terms
are used in practice. Take advantage of interactive activities,
games, quizzes, and flash cards on the Evolve companion website,
and you will be ready to communicate fluently in the clinical
setting and succeed in your healthcare career. Self-study

Simple, clear, non-technical explanations demystify medical
terminology even if you have little or no background in medicine or
science. More than 500 full-color illustrations depict the details
of anatomy, physiology, and pathology, putting medical terms in the
context of the structure and function of the body system. Practical
applications such as case reports, operative and diagnostic tests,
and laboratory and x-ray reports demonstrate the use of medical
terminology in the clinical environment. Pronunciation of Terms at
the end of each chapter include phonetic spellings and spaces to
write the meanings of terms. Abbreviations of terminology make it
easy to learn the medical shorthand used in clinical practice.
