Sick! Diseases and Disorders, Injuries and Infections
David Newton, Donna Olendorf, Christine Jeryan, Karen Boyden, Editors
Sick! Diseases and Disorders, Injuries and Infections presents the latest information on 140 wide-ranging diseases, illnesses, disorders, and injuries. Included are entries on familiar medical problems readers might encounter in daily life, such as acne, asthma, chickenpox, cancer, and learning disorders. Some rare and fascinating illnesses are covered as well, such as smallpox, hantaviruses, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (also known as mad cow disease).
Arranged alphabetically across the four-volume set, entries generally range from three to eight pages in length. Students will find the details they need for reports and other health-related assignments under the following standard subheads: definition, description, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention. A "Words to Know" box in each entry provides definitions or words and terms used in that entry. Sources for futrher study are provided at the end of each entry.
