From School Library JournalGrade 8 Up–In a world in which medical and health literacy are increasingly important, an accessible medical dictionary is an asset. This revision of the 1995 edition contains over 45,000 jargon-free terms that will help intelligent consumers understand what the doctor says, as well as the increasingly ubiquitous messages and acronyms in ads, self-help publications, TV shows, and social conversation. Thirteen hundred terms are new to this edition, including biographical entries, abbreviations, and commonly prescribed medications. The introductory guide succinctly explains the book's organization, syllabication, pronunciation, inflection, and sequencing of information. A Compound Word Index lists nouns found in more than one entry. Each entry in the index includes every adjective that precedes it in the dictionary (e.g., abortion appears eight times, including incomplete abortion, spontaneous abortion, and so on). Illustrations of specific anatomical features and anomalies appear throughout for clarification. Appendixes include measurements and metric conversions, RDA recommendations for vitamins and minerals, a periodic table of elements, and full-body illustrations of skeletal muscles, bones, and both the vascular and nervous systems. While the print format poses limitations (the book cannot keep up with every breaking medical issue, such as the Vioxx recall), this volume is nonetheless a fount of information and terms clearly–but not simplistically–defined.–Mary R. Hofmann, Rivera Middle School, Merced, CA Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.First published in 1995, The American Heritage Stedman's Medical Dictionary is designed for general readers and professionals in the allied medical fields, law, and the insurance industry. Words have brief definitions that are meant to provide an appropriate level of technical language without including excessive detail.The entries are alphabetical, letter by letter, with cross-references for variants, symbols, and synonyms. Some entries have black-and-white line drawings. To enhance accessibility, the editors have avoided the traditional subentry format in most medical dictionaries, which puts a long list of terms under a main entry. For example, Tourette's syndrome is found under Tourette's rather than under syn drome. A Subentry Index serves to group terms under the more general headings. In addition, nonspecialist terms are preferred; a user looking up the word leukocyte will find a see reference to white blood cell. However, those unfamiliar with medical terminology will need further clarification after reading the definition: Any of the colorless or white cells in the blood that have a nucleus and cytoplasm and help protect the body from infection through specialized neutrophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes. Individual entries for each of these cells do not offer much assistance.The dictionary also has more than 300 very short biographical entries for those who have contributed to medical science, such as Marie Curie, Rene Laennec, and Ivan Pavlov. There are anatomical charts, a periodic table, measurement and metric conversion tables, a chart of first aid for burns, and dietary guidelines and Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) at the end of the book. The RDA information is from 1989, rather than the revised 2001 allowances.Although this dictionary would be sufficient for a small office or home collection, libraries serving students and the public will find the sixth edition of Mosby's Medical, Nursing, & Allied Health Dictionary (6th ed., 2002) more useful. It has more entries; clearer, more detailed definitions; and 2,200 color illustrations. RBBCopyright American Library Association. All rights reserved--This text refers to the Hardcoveredition.
