This will be like a dictionary but with medical terms arranged according to body systems and medical topics. These could be arranged around the chapters of the main text of Hutton, but with more entries. Each section will have quick reference boxes so it will be possible to look up a medical term from its common name and vice versa. The sections should be coded with the page number at the side for speed of location.
- Small, "pocket guide" format is convenient and easy to use in any setting.
- Numerous features promote easy referencing of information, including page numbers and quick reference boxes.
- Medical terminology definitions and content is relevant to all areas of health care.
