Barron’s updated and expanded Dictionary of Medical Terms is an A-Z reference that defines medical terms in a way everyone can understand. Although written primarily as a home reference guide, it’s also useful for medical instructors, student nurses, and others in the healthcare professions.
Thousands of terms and definitions cover:
Descriptions of diseases and their symptoms
Healthcare policy and law
Human anatomy and body parts
Medications and their applications
Instructive tables covering important elements, vitamins, trade and generic names of commonly prescribed drugs, and much more
Many terms are supplemented with instructive line illustrations, and extensive cross-references help guide you through the book.
