Full-color anatomical illustrations, labeled in Spanish and English, serve as a handy reference to help patients communicate their needs and concerns. Chapters open with an alphabetical list of common medical terms in English accompanied by Spanish translations. The chapters then address topic-related questions and phrases most commonly experienced by medical personnel when communicating with the patient. Color-coded tabs identify the four main units of the guide for quick and easy access.
