What Should I Draw for These Lab Tests?
By Tina Golden
Laboratory testing begins with a doctor's order and is followed by specimen collection. In this activity, learners review doctors’ lab orders and select the blood collection tubes required for each patient.
Learners click on the root word of a medical term in the left-hand column and drag it to its definition in the right-hand column. There is a time limit, so students will need to train themselves to recognize these root words quickly. Students may repeat the activity as often as they wish. A total of 74 terms are given in random order.
Learners read and listen to the pronunciation of hundreds of medical terms that are arranged in a "jukebox." The terms are listed alphabetically and according to the following categories: aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms, blood bank, coagulation, fungi microorganisms, hematology, protozoa, and urinalysis. This learning activity requires a computer that is equipped with speakers.
