Acquiring Medical Language https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1259638162.jpeg 2 2019 9781259638169 Acquiring Medical Language approaches medical language not as words to be memorized but as a language to be learned. This text teaches students to break down words into their composite parts. The authors use illustrations of body systems, term blocks that include specific word roots, examples containing that root, and interesting facts to make the information memorable. This approach exposes students to all the relevant information (the root, its meaning, its use), so they see how it relates to the other roots in the context of the body system. After introducing the student to the important roots and the medical terms relevant to the body system, the roots are presented using SOAP as the organizational framework. SOAP stands for the four general parts of a medical note: Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan. New to This Edition ● Every chapter includes updated abbreviations. ● Body system chapters contain word tables organized by categories, such as pharmacology, radiology, oncology, and health professions ● This edition expands coverage on a variety of health professions. ● This edition expands coverage of sexually transmitted diseases, eye conditions, gastrointestinal diagnoses and hepatitis, and the process of fertilization ● The text now includes exercises that correlate with assignable, auto-graded activities within Connect for more efficient and productive learning.
