Transcript: Compound Words Defining Medical Terms Is a WR plus a vowel, usually an « o «. Usually indicates a body part. Listed as word root/vowel ( e.g. cardi/o). Makes many words easier to pronounce Suffixes Examples of Suffixes Combining Forms Root Words. Combining Forms. Prefixes. Suffixes. Basic Rules. colon/o + scope = colonoscope (colon) (instrument to view) instrument to view the colon Rule #1 A suffix is a word ending. In the words tonsill/itis and tonsill/ectomy, Where are the suffixes? Meanings? Changing a suffix gives medical words a new meaning. Indicates a procedure, condition, disease, or part of speech.

Indicates a number, time, position, direction, color, or negation Word Root Suffix Medical Word Meaning scler/ + osis sclerosis abnormal condition (hardening) (abnormal condition) of hardening Prefix + Word Root + Suffix = Medical Word Meaning hyper therm -ia hyperthermia condition of (excessive) (heat) (condition) excessive heat intra muscul -ar intramuscular within the muscles (in, within) (muscle) (relating to) macro gloss -ia macroglossia condition of a (large) (tongue) (condition) large tongue micro card -ia microcardia Condition of a small heart A combining vowel is used to link a WR to a suffix that begins with a consonant and to link a word root to another word root. Basic Rules The main part or stem of a word is called a word root (WR). WR is usually derived from the Greek or Latin Indicates a body part. Most medical words have one or two roots. Root Words Examples Examples of CF's Words with more than one root are Compound Words oste/ o/ chondr/ o/ + itis = osteochondritis (bone) (cartilage) (inflammation) inflamation of bone and cartilage oste/ o/ arthr/ + itis = osteoarthritis (joint) inflammation of bone/joint Greek Word Word Root kardia (heart) cardi gaster (stomach) gastr hepat (liver) hepat Nephros (kidney) nephr Osteon (bone) oste Prefixes Rule #2 Examples of WR Medical Terminology A WR is used before a suffix that begins with a vowel. Combining Form + Suffix = Medical Word Meaning arthr/o -centesis arthrocentesis puncture of a joint (joint) (puncture) thorac/o -tomy thoracotomy incision of the chest (chest) (incision) gastr/o megaly gastromegaly enlargement of the stomach (stomach) (enlargement) erythr/o -cyte erythrocyte red blood cell (red) (cell) cyt/o -logy cytology study of a cell (cell) (study) Word Root + Combining Vowel = Combining Form Meaning cardi o cardi/o heart gastr o gastr/o stomach arthr o arthr/o joint derm o derm/o skin cyt o cyt/o cell cephal o cephal/o head cerebr o cerebr/o brain Three Steps .

Transcript: TOPIC why doctors shouln't make decisions for patients? Treatment decision Aids (DAS) in advanced cancer: When the GOAL is not cure and the Answer is NOT CLEAR Treatment decision making in advanced cancer is complex for many reasons. The goals of treatment are often palliative: to improve diseas-related symptoms and life quality for a limited period of time, and in some cases, to prolong average survival by weeks or months. When the goal of trearment is not cure, treatment decisions are further complicated by patient and caregiver denial. anxiety, physical distress and emotional distress.In addition, potential misunderstandings of information, avaiable through physicans, the health care team, media, and other sources, can make for a complex decision- making process for patients. Patients increasingly define themselves as consumers of health care. Many cancer patients today want detailed information about their cancer diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment options,and many wish to be active participants in mecidal decision making. Support for involving patients in making decisions about their care is mounting with an increasing weight evidence in several areas of medicine, demonnstrating that this can contribute to better quality decisions and can improve health outcoms. Among cancer patients, those offered choices in their treatment show better psychologic adjustment and health-related quality of life, while those feeling that thry have had little control over their disease and treatment have a poorer psychosocial outcome. Moreover, patients who preceive that their physicans are making an effort to facilitate their involvement in decision making tend to be more involved in that process and have greater satisfaction and physician loyalty. While many decision supports exist for early-stage cancer patients, there are few for advanced cancer patients, who arguably have a greater need for decision support.The potential benefits of "DAS" include enhanced patient understanding, reduced decisional conflict, enhanced harmonization between patient values and treatment decisions, and greater patient invovement and satisfaction with decision making. cancer statistics A survey of 1,012 canadian women with early breast cancer revealed that most of these women wanted detailed information about their disease, - that 22% wanted to select their own treatment - that 44% wanted to select collaboratively with their doctor - and that 34% wanted their doctor to select the trearment when patients can't make a decision when a person is mentally incapacitated because of illness, disease, mental illness or development disabilities, others must make major decisions for them. sometimes patients are not able to make decisions about their medical care. this applies to newborns, yong children, people in trasient unconscious states, and people with psychiatric or psychological conditions that disrupt ordered thought, others must make major decisions for them. patients' preferences Patients have variable preferences for information and involvement in their cancer care,with predective variable including : age,sex, education, and performance status. only those patients who understand their prognosis can make choives about their care, or participate in treatment decisions accordance with their values. But even when patients receive the required information, a significant proportion misunderstands this information. A small study of 48 patients with colon cancer reported that while these patients have similar information needs compared with patients with breast cancer, they have strikingly lower involvement preferences. indeed, 78% wanted to play a passive role in decision making and 80% preceived that they did so. similarly, a study of 57 men with prostate cancer found that the men wanted to be well informed, though 58% prefered that their doctor make the final treatment decision. Estimates of the proportion of cancer patients who achieve their desired involvement in their treatment decision making range from 34% to 42%. who can make a decision? when the patients are clearly unable to make decisions for themselves, physicians may turn to surrogate decision- makers. surrogate may act in the following order of priority: 1- a legally appointed guardian, 2- a spouse, 3- an adult child 4- a parent, 5- an adult sibiling, 6- a close relative or friend 7- doctor in emergency case support limitation Treatment decisios in advanced cancer are difficult. The uncertain benefits of systemic anticancer treatment must be weighed against likely toxicity, in a situation where the goal of treatment is not cure. while many decision supports exist for early stage cancer patients, there are few for advanced cancer patients, who arguably have a greater need for decision support. Why doctors should not make a decision unless it needed: because there are legally priority.... first 5 types of cancer: Each year one and half million Americans will be diagnosed with some form

Transcript: In medical terminology there are three possible word parts which are: 1.-PREFIX 2.-ROOTS 3.-SIFFIX SUFFIX LESSON combining vowels SUFFIX is a word ending that modifies a root and indicates that the word is a noun or an adjetive and often determines how the definition of the word will begin PREFIX combinining vowels between word root and suffix if the suffix begins with a vowel 1.-Do not use a combining vowel If suffix begins with a consonant 1.-use combining vowel Make it possible to pronounce long terms usually an "o" combine two word parts between two word parts between word root and suffix Example: Medical terms are formed by combining word segments. A root can be combined with prefixes, roots or suffixes. For example, the prefix dys (difficult) can be combined with the root pnea (breathing). This forms the term dyspnea meaning difficulty in breathing. ostomy — creating of an artificial opening plegia — paralysis pnea — breathing thorax — chest pseudo — false/fake therm — heat thromb — clot thyroid — thyroid gland urin — urine/urinary tract Language that is used to accurately describe the human body and associated components, conditions, processes and process in a science-based manner. Most medical term have greek or Latin origins prefix is placed at the beginning of a word to modify or change its meaning, a prefix is also called a preformative, because it alters the form of the words to which it is affixed. Medical terminology ROOTS Preffix lesson: medical terminology anti-against brady-slow hemi-half hypo-below/deficient polu-many semi-half They are never used alone examples: tachy-fast/rapid dys-difficulty/labored hyper-above/excessive Making words many medical words have special plural forms based on the ending of the word Example: word ending: a plural ending:ae singular example:vertebra plural example: vertebrae MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY The root of a wod contains its basic meaning, it can be conbined with another root, prefix or suffix to form different medical terms Examples Suffix deffinition example -algia pain neuralgia Forming plurals
