_FM_5Preface to the Fourth Edition
A nursing dictionary is an effective tool of providing not only meaning of commonly used medical terms but also about procedures, investigations and pharmacological agents in brief.
The complete and concise text of the latest edition is fully revised and updated with more than 250 new entries. Around 65 new figures explaining procedures, investigations and pharmacological agents in brief have also been added.
New appendices, including Abbreviations Used Regarding the Route of Administration of Medicine, Karnofsky's Index, Normal Hematological Values, etc. would be of immense help to nursing students.
The dictionary would definitely serve as a ready reference to the entire nursing community.

_FM_6Preface to the First Edition
Nursing is a speciality in its own right. Implementation of any health programme at community or hospital level needs active participation of nursing staff. Hence, nursing education has received a major thrust in recent times.
Medical vocabulary useful for nurses is expanding at a rapid pace. Old and obsolete words are being deleted. New procedures and investigations are being added regularly. A nursing dictionary is an effective tool of providing not only meaning of commonly used medical terms but also about procedures, investigations and pharmacological agents in brief.
In this book, I have compiled and presented the commonly used terms and their meaning without any emphasis on their pronunciation and etymon. I hope the width and depth of its coverage will be advantageous for the nursing community.
All suggestions for improvement are cordially welcome.
