    Seeking recommendations for a Medical Dictionary

    ... to be specific a US language Medical/Pharmalogical lexicon/dictionary for a nursing student, to work with both O97 and O2000. Found a thread about Stedman's causing problems, but otherwise nothing, so before I buy, I'd like to hear Loungers opinions and experience. TIA.

    I have used Stedmans for the past several years with Word97 and now Office2k with no problems. Just installed the latest Stedmans Medical Spellcheck on Office 2k / Win2k last week with no problems. Quick install.

    Not recommendations, but a couple I found:
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.precisiontype.com/main.asp>Precision Fonts</A> and search on 'medical'
    or
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.btinternet.com/~ablumsohn/fonts.htm>this one here</A>

    Re: Medical fonts

    I should have been more clear. She would like a font with the medical shorthand symbols for things like before, after etc. I don't recall offhand what is what, but she said things like line over c and line over a. Currently she either leaves them blank in the doc and has to remember to manually draw in the lines or uses EQ to create the symbols but both methods are a kludge.

    Re: Medical fonts

    once we find a font she'll do that, but she wants to avoid using EQ. she said she had one at one time but her old machine crashed andshe lost it. She has no idea where she got it from.

    Re: Medical fonts

    While I generally know the kind of shorthand symbols she's talking about (Rx, Hx, Tx are the only ones I know, plus some pharmaceutical abbreviations), I have no clue where a resource might be found. Would she be able to provide us with some additional examples in graphic form in order to improve my ability to search?

    John

    There is a pdf file of medical shorthand symbols <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.ilchiro.org/medical_shorthand.htm>here</A> which will give you an idea of the type of fonts referred to.
    Hope this helps. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Thank you, but I'm not getting a valid website at that URL. <img src=/S/crybaby.gif border=0 alt=crybaby width=15 height=15>

    Can you check it?

    Re: Medical fonts

    sorry about that - in my first attempt the url got mangled - have edited and it should be ok now, but for the record the proper URL is <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.ilchiro.org/medical_shorthand.htm>http://www.ilchiro.org/medical_shorthand.htm</A>
