We're going to learn about how to use flashcards to help setting medical terminology or medical language flashcards can be a great way to quiz yourself classmates or get your family involved in your learning since medical terminology consists of three types of word parts it's useful to create individual flashcards with word parts and then as the platica class progresses the entire medical terms will be put on the flashcard medical words consist of combining words which are the foundation of a word it gives the word its main medical meeting combining words have a route a forward slash a combining vowel and a hyphen here are three examples of combining words the first one is cardio which actually when you turn it over you see it means heart the next one is and when you flip it over it actually means nerve another example is Toronto now when you turn it over it means skin now most medical words also have a suffix and that is at the end of the word and it helps to modify or clarify the medical word meaning of the word my favorite suffix is itis my tea is which means infection or inflammation so when I get a patient coming into my office and say they have a pain in their body pardon I think to myself this person must have an itis now if you combined the word cardio and itis car do you get carditis which is an infection or inflammation of the heart if you combine neuro with itis Music inflammation or infection of the nerve and then another suffix is ectomy ectomy actually means surgical removal so an example of this would be appendectomy or the surgical removal of the appendix last some medical wards may have a prefix prefixes are at the beginning of word and help clarify the medical word further tacky is the amount of cord that means fast and so if you take the combining word cardio and tacky you get tachycardia which means fast heart breaking on the other hand is the opposite and it means slow so if you combine Brady kardia you get slow heart so in closing this was a quick quick introduction on how you can use flash cards not only to learn medical words and their parts but also to combine them to form entire medical words thank you
