Medical Terminology An Illustrated Guide 9th Edition Pdf Book Description:
Medical Terminology: An Illustrated Guide, Ninth Edition was created and developed to help you master the language of medicine. The tools and features in the text will help you work through the material presented. Please take a few moments to look through this User’s Guide, which will introduce you to the features that will enhance your learning experience. Chapter Opening Case Studies and Objectives help you identify learning goals and familiarize yourself with the materials covered in the chapter. Chapter Pretests quiz students on previous knowledge at the beginning of each chapter. Students should take each Chapter Pretest before starting the chapter and again after completing the chapter in order to measure progress. Detailed, full-color drawings and photographs illuminate the chapters. These include clinical photographs and tissue micrographs. The many figures amplify and clarify the text and are particularly helpful for visual learners. Suffixes sometimes take on a color of their own as they are added to different words. The suffix -thon is taken from the name of the Greek town Marathon, from which news of a battle victory was carried by a long-distance runner.
It has been attached to various words to mean a contest of great endurance. We have bike a thons, dance-a-thons, telethons, and even major charity fundraisers called thon a thons. The adjective ending ish is used, as in boyish or childish, to suggest traces of certain characteristics. People tack it onto words to indicate that they are estimates, not right on target, as in forty ish or blue ish. A vague time for a lunch appointment could be noon-ish. In science and medicine, the ending tech is used to imply high technology, as in the company name Genentech, and pure may be added to inspire confidence, as in the naming of the Multi-Pure water filter. The ending mate suggests helping, as in helpmate, defined in the dictionary as a helpful companion, more specifically, a wife, or sometimes, a husband. The medical device HeartMate is a pump used to assist a damaged heart. In current terminology, the ending -ome refers to the objects in a comprehensive topic of study such as microbiome (total microbiologic population associated with an individual), genome (study of all the genes in an individual), and proteome (the entire protein makeup of an individual)
