Medical Terminology of the Circulatory System. Medical Records. Instructional Unit for the Medical Transcriber.
Gosman, Minna L.
Developed as a result of an analysis of the task of transcribing as practiced in a health facility, this study guide was designed to teach the knowledge and skills required of a medical transcriber. The medical record department was identified as a major occupational area, and a task inventory for medical records was developed and used as a basis for a questionnaire distributed to 48 health care facilities. Based on the results, instructional units for teaching medical terminology were developed which include sketches to illustrate material and space for the student to fill in the answers to questions. This unit focuses on the circulatory system and covers such topics as: (1) the heart, (2) systematic circulation, (3) symptoms and tests, and (4) disorders of the heart. Included are 18 audio exercises for use with a cassette, nine transcription exercises, and answers to the unit questions. Related documents are announced as VT 015 916 and VT 015 918 in this issue.
