By Jane Rice
Medical Terminology for Healthcare Professionals gives you a solid foundation in the technical language of modern medicine. It combines the study of word parts, key body systems and techniques for interpreting any medical term. Concise coverage of body systems, along with related abbreviations, pharmaceuticals and diagnostic and lab tests, provides context and direct applications.
The Rice word-building method stresses the essential rules of learning and applying medical terms. Building Your Medical Vocabulary sections group together terms containing the same prefix, word root or combining form. Combining Forms Tables with meanings in each body system chapter spotlight the roots of key terms associated with each system. Practical exercises challenge you to apply your understanding of word-building to medical record analysis.
The 10th Edition has been updated throughout with new art, expanded review segments and current trends and research in healthcare today.
