Abstract:

MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONS, 8E simplifies the process of memorizing complex medical terminology by focusing on the important word parts--common prefixes, suffixes and root words--that provide a foundation for learning hundreds of medical terms. Organized by body systems, chapters follow a logical flow of information: an overview of the body system's structure and functions, a summary of applicable medical specialties, and ultimately pathology, diagnostic, and treatment procedures. An expanded section on complementary and alternative therapies reflects the changing role of holistic health care. A convenient table of abbreviations is included at the end of every chapter, while resourceful appendices offer a listing of abbreviations, a table of word parts and their meanings, and a glossary of pathology and procedures. Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version. -- Provided by publisher.
