about

Forget everything you've learned of medical terminology! Layman's Terms: The Humorous Guide to Medical Misinterpretation introduces a whole new medical language as patients, family members, and even healthcare workers give their version of the "doctor talk." From "ammonia" (pneumonia) to "chex populations" (chest palpitations) Layman's Terms serves as your guide to hundreds of medical malapropisms, misspellings, and humorous quotations.

Highlights include:
- Almost 400 translations of misinterpreted medical terms
- Humorous definitions and clinical indicators
- Weird medical treatments
- Includes original "research"
- Perfectly sized for a lab-coat pocket
- Brings some humor to a boring shift or rotation

Perfect for both the healthcare student and veteran medical provider, Layman's Terms is your "subscription" (prescription) for a healthy dose of laughter.

Greg Wanner is a physician assistant and former emergency medical technician who has spent over ten years learning and observing the often misunderstood language of medicine. He practices emergency medicine and teaches physician assistant students in the Philadelphia area. Greg and his wife currently live in southern New Jersey.Greg Wa...
