Grade 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).

Previously published in 2004 as The American Heritage Stedman's Medical Dictionary (2d ed.), this volume contains more than 45,000 definitions. The brief entries cover medical specialties, diseases and conditions, abbreviations, prescription drugs, and more. There are also entries for scientists and physicians who played an important role in medical history. Intended as "a shortcut to understanding the complex vocabulary of 21st-century health care," this is also a true dictionary with all of the standard dictionary conventions such as pronunciation, part-of-speech labels, and inflected forms.
