A proven and unique combination of learning principles and exercises, this widely respected book continues to get better! Medical Terminology for Health Professions, Fifth Edition, simplifies the process of learning hundreds of difficult, complex medical terms. The see and say pronunciation system makes pronouncing unfamiliar terms easy. Because word parts are such an important aspect of learning medical terminology, mastery of these building blocks is emphasized throughout the book. Organized by body system, chapters begin with an overview of the structures and functions of that system so you can relate these to specialty, pathology, diagnostic, and treatment procedures that follow.
