Summary

This book provides a comprehensive, yet not-intimidating introduction to medical terminology. The book is organised by body systems and begins with an orientation, using terms users may already be familiar with, then builds upon those terms to the more complex terminology. Each chapter presents concepts and illustrations reinforced by exercises, and ends with comprehensive review exercises.

  • Offers expanded content on pharmacology that allows students to learn the key drug classes associated with each body system
  • Provides more scenario and case study exercises that encourage critical thinking and application of material
