Overview

Ideal for online or classroom teaching, MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONS, 8th Edition simplifies the process of memorizing complex medical terminology by focusing on the important word parts -- common prefixes, suffixes and root words -- that provide a foundation for learning hundreds of medical terms. Organized by body systems, chapters follow a logical flow of information: an overview of the body system's structure and functions, a summary of applicable medical specialties, and then pathology, diagnostic, and treatment procedures. Students master the language necessary to describe how each body system works, what goes wrong with it, and how to treat it, and then put their new skills into practice in exercises.

Ann Ehrlich, Goddard College

Ann Ehrlich is an experienced teacher, professional author, and lifelong student. Considered one of the leading experts in the field of medical terminology since 1988, she has written numerous books on such health topics as dental assisting, practice management, speech therapy and lymphedema.

Carol L. Schroeder, University of Wisconsin
