Download Medical Terminology An Illustrated Guide 9th Edition Pdf Book Description:
Knowledge of medical terminology is fundamental to a wide variety of healthcare fields. This text is designed to satisfy the basic learning requirements needed to practice in any health career setting. In the course of your training and future careers, you will need to learn thousands of new terms. The job might be overwhelming if not for learning the skills of dividing the words into their component parts. These roots, suffixes, and prefixes appear over and over in different terms but retain the same meanings. Knowing these meanings will help you define and remember a host of words. This process is like using a set of building blocks to assemble different structures. Using a more scientific example, it is like using the four bases in DNA to code for all the amino acids needed to make proteins. The text opens with a general introduction to word parts and the human body as a whole, followed by an overview of diseases and treatments. Each subsequent chapter on the individual body systems begins with an illustrated overview of the system with definitions of key terms relevant to that system. Tables of word parts and exercises on using them follow. Turning to the abnormal, a section on diseases and treatments is included, followed by definitions of related key terms.
The section of enrichment terms includes words and phrases that are “good to know” if time allows or if someone is particularly interested in that specialty. The sequence of the systems chapters follows the same order as that found in traditional anatomy and physiology books. Thus this text easily can be used simultaneously with study of A & P. We have tried to make this text easy to use and full of reinforcing drills. We have also included many phonetic pronunciations so you can recognize technical terms when they are spoken and can comfortably use them yourself. Each chapter is enlivened with a short opening case study. These may have some words and abbreviations that are unfamiliar to you, especially at the start of the text. They are included to spark your interest in the chapter material, and give you a sense of medical situations and language. Don’t be concerned if you don’t understand them completely. Return to them after you study the chapter, or even later chapters, and see if they are more understandable.
