About

Overview

Completely up to date with the latest terms and procedures, the Third Edition of the popular MEDICAL LANGUAGE: FOCUS ON TERMINOLOGY emphasizes word parts and word-building in its thorough introduction to the basic principles of anatomy and physiology. Focusing on the terminology instead of the context, the text provides just enough content on the anatomy of each body system to help students understand the related disease, diagnostic and surgical terms. Students are equipped with tools to analyze and define medical terms, along with techniques to build medical terms from roots, prefixes, and suffixes. The Third Edition's Medical Terminology Learning Lab, innovative digital solution, helps students understand the relevance of medical terminology, including how they will apply and use this knowledge in their careers.
