This edition includes a variety of special features to make studying medical terminology a more encompassing and rewarding experience. We have continued to develop new features, based on feedback from instructors and students. A review of the “What’s Inside” section provides explanations and illustrations about all of the text’s distinctive features, as well as a short introduction to the many resources available to support the text. The design and flexibility of Simplified, 5th edition, enables its use as a self-instructional book, as an eBook, or as a text in traditional lecture and classroom environments. The organization and pedagogical devices are designed to help instructors teach and students learn medical terminology easily and quickly. When students use the available learning tool, they will find that the language of medicine stays with them and they can quickly apply the terminology in the clinical field
This edition also continues to present eponyms without showing the possessive form, such as Alzheimer disease, Down syndrome, and Parkinson disease. Medical dictionaries, as well as the American Association for Medical Transcription and the American Medical Association, support these changes. A summary of common symbols and an updated list of “do-not-use” abbreviations are provided in Appendix E: Abbreviations and Symbols. In addition, all outdated medical terms in the textbook have been replaced with the most recent, state-of-the-art terms.
