Item description for Webster's New World Medical Dictionary (2nd Edition) by

Outline ReviewThe Internet and the Information Age promise all the data you can take, but fall short when it comes to helping you understand it all. If you've decided to learn more about your health, the language of medicine can be a daunting obstacle. Webster's New World Medical Dictionary, created in partnership with, is an excellent first reference for nonprofessionals; the thousands of definitions are clearly and precisely written and cross-referenced in plain language. The content is "100 percent doctor-produced" and highly reliable, yet edited well enough that those of us on the other side of the insurance card can grasp the meaning quickly. Whether your kid has a greenstick fracture, you want to find out what's so terrible about tetanus that you need a shot, or your tests came back "WNL," you'll find that a little learning, far from being a dangerous thing, can offer greater peace of mind and help you deal more directly with your health care. The accompanying CD-ROM includes a fully searchable electronic version of the text (great for laptops!) and web links to's extensive free information on treatments and drugs. It won't beat seven to nine years of study and training, but Webster's New World Medical Dictionary will help you understand your doctor and your health. --Rob Lightner

Review on Websters Medical dictionary  Oct 25, 2007
Great terms but some are not found in it Ill need to get yet another medical dictionary.
comprehensive, encyclopedic  Aug 25, 2004
This medical dictionary is comprehensive and very informative. Its style is encyclopedic, meaning that it not only defines terms, but also continues into detail. I would highly recommend this dictionary to lay persons and to persons in entry-level medical positions.
Not a Complete Reference Book  Sep 19, 2003
I picked this book partly due to the fact that it came with the complete medical dictionary on a CD. It would be great to leave the book at school and install the software on my home computer...medical books are heavy!!!
Unfortunately, most of the medical words that I've had to look up in my courses have not been in this reference book. I'm taking a medical secretarial course, so this book would be a major disappointment for anyone taking nursing or medical.
