Summary

Summary

This work offers health professionals with the essential Spanish required to communicate with and treat Spanish-speaking patients. The text presents Spanish translations of the terms, phrases and questions that may be used in ascertaining the patients history, performing the physical examination, giving the patient instructions and providing general treatment and follow-up care. Topics include contraception, pregnancy and delivery, poisoning and AIDS, with patient instructions given in each instance. It is written so that all the questions can be answered with simple yes or no responses and includes an appendix of general vocabulary, an index of terms and an index of verbs.
