2 BASIC MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY Presented by: Penny Osmon, BA, CPC Wisconsin Medical Society Copyright 2007 Wisconsin Medical Society Your Doctor. Your Health.

3 Objectives Reviewing body systems and related medical terms Understanding how medical terms are formed including combining forms, prefixes and suffixes Learning to define, spell and pronounce medical terms according to the component word parts Forming a foundation that allows continuing expansion of medicla terminology skills

4 What We Will Cover Today! Basic Medical Word Structure Gastrointestinal System Respiratory System Cardiovascular System Urinary System Reproductive System Nervous System, Special Senses Integumentary System

5 STOP! I will now test your knowledge

6 Word Root Foundation or core All medical words contain one or more Conveys fundamental meaning Example: HEPAT/ITIS "HEPAT" (liver) is the word root.

7 SUFFIX Medical terms may/may not contain a suffix Attached to the end of a word root Alters or modifies the meaning Example: HEPAT/ITIS "-ITIS" (inflammation) is the suffix.

8 PREFIX Attached to the beginning Influences the meaning Not all medical terms contain a prefix Example: SUB/HEPAT/IC "SUB-" (under) is the prefix. ("-IC" is the suffix for pertaining to, subhepatic means pertaining to under the liver.)

9 COMBINING VOWEL Usually an “O” Links two word roots or a word root and a suffix Eases pronunciation Not all medical terms contain combining vowels Has no meaning of its own A word root which a vowel is attached is called a combining form

10 RULES When connecting two word roots, a combining vowel is usually used even when vowels are present at the junction - oste/o/arthr/itis When connecting a word root and a suffix, a combining vowel is usually not used if the suffix begins with a vowel - hepat/ic

11 BREAKDOWN Medical terms include pertinent word parts, not all the time Breakdown can sometimes be misleading Knowing the breakdown will help with the learning process Breakdown alone will not always give you the entire meaning of the term Useful tool for identifying procedure, anatomical site or condition

12 EXAMPLES LEUK/EMIA - literally means blood condition of white; actual meaning is large increase in the number of cancerous abnormal white blood cells AUT/O/PSY - literally means process of viewing self; actual meaning is exam of dead body (with one’s own eyes) to determine cause of death
