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.
In this interactive object, learners read the definitions of prefixes and suffixes that relate to the digestive system. In a drag and drop exercise, the learners combine word components to form medical terms.
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.
In this learning object, learners will follow the illness of an 83-year-old woman, noting changes in her condition and ordering the appropriate medical imaging studies needed to inform her physicians about both her progress and her treatment options.
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine the action of insulin and other antidiabetic medications. In a drag-and-drop exercise, learners match oral agents with the action they perform. In a separate activity, learners answer questions about the onset of action for different types of insulin.
Learners follow an EMT response at a nursing home involving a patient who complains of having difficulty breathing. In this detailed activity, learners examine response procedures, resources, and medications.
Learners examine OSHA's guidelines of what to include in a bloodborne pathogen exposure control plan for persons who work in general industry, health care, emergency medical services, law enforcement, education, recreation industries, or other occupations in which there is a potential for exposure to blood, blood products, bodily fluids, or human tissues.
