Publisher Comments:

DYNAMIC TOOLS FOR A LIVING LANGUAGE!

Medical Terminology is vital to our careers, our health, and our lives. This text demonstrates how medical terminology is a dynamic and relevant contributor to the world around us. CAREER APPLICATIONS

  • Professional Profile boxes begin each chapter and highlight health care career options.
  • NEW Professional journal exercises concluding each chapter challenge students to write sentences from the perspective of different health professionals.
  • Med Term Tips in every chapter pique student interest by presenting quick, useful facts they can use in their careers.
ACCURACY AND CONSISTENCY
  • Eye-catching, accurate photographs and illustrations bring body systems and diseases to life underscoring that medical terminology is a living, dynamic language.
  • Pathology sections are integrated to bring a greater context for the terminology.
  • Word Building tables emphasize building words rather than rote memorization.
MULTIMEDIA
  • CD-ROM (packaged free with every text) contains over a dozen types of learning activities for each chapter including a flashcard generator, an audio pronunciation glossary, videos, animations, interactive exercises, and games that quiz students on spelling, word-building concepts, and anatomy.
  • Companion Website (#LINK<www.prenhall.com/fremgen>#). A text-specific, interactive online workbook that features a variety of quizzes along with an automatic scoring and feedback function. An audio pronunciation glossary and case studies are also included.

Synopsis:

Since the first edition of Medical Terminology: A Living Language was published it has been noted for its “clean” and logical format that promotes a seemless learning experience.  The Fourth Edition provides users with a consistent and logical system to help them build their understanding of medical terminology as it relates to the human body. This book maintains a real-world focus that relates medical terminology to various health professions, thereby capturing the users interest and providing information about potential future health careers. This information is reinforced with some key new features such as : an all-new art program carefully crafted by a medically trained illustrator;  the System At A Glance chapter-opening feature which provides a quick reference for each topic being discussed in terms of its function, organs, combining forms, suffixes, and prefixes; the pharmacology tables which have been expanded to include commonly used generic and brand names; and much more.

Synopsis:

Boasting a streamlined and reorganized format, the Third Edition provides users with a consistent and logical system to help them build their understanding of medical terminology as it relates to the human body. This book maintains a real-world focus that relates medical terminology to various health professions, thereby capturing the users interest and providing information about potential future health careers. This information is reinforced with various additional study resources that include exercises, a Companion Website, and a CD-ROM free with the book. New to this edition are: redistribution of the Pharmacology chapter throughout the book, Revised Special Topics chapter, Expanded Professional Profile feature, Updated medical terms, Professional Journal exercises, End-of-chapter review list. Practice exercises have also been revised. This book also boasts an abundance of artwork and superior pedagogical package that includes practice exercises and activities, Chart Note Transcription exercises, Med Term Tips, case studies, Pronunciation Practice, Professional Journal, "Getting Connected" multimedia extension exercises, and word building tables. All health professionals and medical terminology students.
