Building a Medical Vocabulary, 4th Edition, teaches you the fundamental word parts that make up the language of health care - and then explores how these word parts are used to construct more complex terms. This cumulative, "building block" approach makes it easier for you to learn the vocabulary covered in the book...and equips you to recognize and analyze the new terms that you'll encounter throughout your career! Each chapter focuses on a separate body system, to make understanding and remembering new terminology simple and logical. You'll quickly become familiar with the terms that apply to each body system's anatomy, its diseases, and the drugs and procedures that are used to diagnose and treat them.
