Never spell “diarrhea” wrong again. Knowing that the word is composed of two parts “dia-“ (passing through) + “-rrhea” (flow, discharge) would prevent such embarrassments as that of the ER resident who listed one reason for admission as “dire rear” (rinkworks.com). Etymology for Health Sciences uses a card-match system to help students “play their way” to mastery of the necessary prefixes, suffixes, and word bases essential to medicine and other health-related fields.
This is a card-match set from Duwauhkabec Learning for Life that includes paired match-up cards (terms and definitions) for 45 health-sciences related prefixes and 155 health-sciences related suffixes.
Together, these cards cover 200 essential health-sciences related word parts for understanding terminology in medical school, nursing, kinesiology, anthropology, etc. This set – and its companion set covering word bases – provides an excellent, physically interactive tool for learning vocabulary in biology, anatomy, physiology, pathology, forensics, etc.
