THE CHARLES PRESS HANDBOOK OF CURRENT MEDICAL ABBREVIATIONS
Fifth Edition


One of the Most Widely Used Abbreviations Dictionaries on the Market!


EXPERIENCE, CRITICAL ACCLAIM, RECOGNITION

After 35 years, and four previous bestselling editions, The Handbook is recognized as the gold standard in medical abbreviations dictionaries. Now one of the most trusted and highly acclaimed references of its kind, it is the dictionary of choice for healthcare providers, medical and nursing practitioners, students, medical transcriptionists, and hospital administrators across the United States.

Today, The Handbook is used in thousands of hospitals, doctors’ offices, urgent care clinics, nursing homes, ambulatory surgical centers, long-term care facilities, hospices, pharmaceutical companies and law firms. With decades of experience—five editions and a new, upcoming electronic sixth edition—we have created one of the most reliable, authoritative and user-friendly resources for medical abbreviations on the market today.

ACCURATE AND CLINICALLY RELEVANT

Each entry has been carefully researched by a team of authoritative medical and editorial experts, ensuring that the format, spelling and punctuation of the abbreviations, and the wording of the definitions, are correct and current.

While there are multiple definitions for nearly every abbreviation and symbol, and many different ways of abbreviating most all terms and phrases, we have carefully edited the entries to include only those that are most standard and commonly used in everyday medical and nursing practice.

ONLY CURRENT ABBREVIATIONS

Thoroughly revised and updated to include thousands of new and current abbreviations, acronyms and symbols, including those that have just come into use.

Obsolete abbreviations and abbreviations for terms and phrases that have fallen out of favor have been deleted and/or updated to reflect current usage, spelling and format.

HANDY SIZE, EASY TO READ, AFFORDABLE

With type that is actually large enough to read, and formatted in a way that makes it easy to locate and differentiate between entries, the Handbook makes the work of translating abbreviations easier, faster and more accurate.

It is small enough to comfortably carry with you and is still one of the most competitively priced medical abbreviations dictionary on the market today.
