Stedman's Medical Terminology, 2nd Edition

Stedman's Medical Terminology, 2nd Edition

An engaging and hands-on way to learn the language of health care, Stedman’s Medical Terminology2e uses a proven “work text” approach that helps students master the information they need to communicate successfully in the health care world. More than 4,500 questions make this the most comprehensive medical terminology resource on the market.
 
Each chapter begins with enough coverage of anatomy and physiology to provide the context for learning the medical terms, followed by Word Part and Terminology Tables that provide strategies for figuring out the meaning of new words and connecting them to the appropriate body system. Exercises in every chapter progress in a meaningful way from recall and review, to word building, to comprehension, and finally to application and analysis. This approach allows student to a see their vocabulary grow and to connect what they are learning to a real-life context. 
 
The Second Edition has been updated to reflect the most current and actively used terms in today’s health care settings, new Study Tips help students develop the study skills they need to be successful in future courses, and new PrepU icons direct students to chapter-by-chapter adaptive quizzing and more.

  • Reorganized chapters now align with the Memmler’s Anatomy and Physiology text table of contents for cross-over consistency.
  • Chapter Objectives have been changed to Learning Outcomes and rewritten where necessary.
  • Study Tips in every chapter highlight common errors people make when working with medical terms, and give you tips for success.
  • An updated design maximizes images and better aligns figures to content.
  • Updated terms and references provide the most current and actively used language in today’s health care settings.
  • Flashcards were removed from back of the text, but are still available online.
  • Revised and updated ancillary materials reflect changes made in the text.

General Information
 
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
 
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
 
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
 
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
 
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
 
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
 
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
 
Many thanks for choosing the Physio Shop and happy reading!
