about this item

This newly revised and completely re-illustrated edition of The New American Medical Dictionary and Health Manual provides updated explanations of over 10,000 medical terms, diseases, and disorders--300 more than the previous edition. The health manual--which outlines anatomical functions, human development, common procedures, diet information, and basic first aid--has also been updated to include the latest medical developments.
Approximately two-thirds of the book presents some 10,000 definitions of medical terms directed towards the non-specialist. The final third of the book presents information on basic first aid, anatomy, poison control, temperature, pulse rates, weight, and other topics for home reference. Lacks pronunciation guidelines.
