Medicine: general issues

Comprehensive coverage and high standards are PDR's trademarks. Known for years through their widely-used drug references, PDR has entered the world of medical dictionaries, setting a new model of medical acumen and precision. Compiled for medical students and professionals, the well-informed and interested layperson will also enjoy the clarity and thoroughness of the definitions and the finely rendered full-page color anatomical illustrations. A lot of care has clearly been given to ease the access of information. The WordFinder is one such service, a long list of multiple-term entries set in the front of the book. It lets you know, for example, that you'll find hypnotic information under psychotherapy, relationship, sleep, and state. There's also a user's guide to medical prefixes and suffixes, common medical abbreviations, a guide to pharmaceutical names, and more than 100,000 medical terms defined.
