There are three basic parts to medical terms: a word root (usually the middle of the word and its central meaning), a prefix (comes at the beginning and usually identifies some subdivision or part of the central meaning), and a suffix (comes at the end and modifies the central meaning as to what or who is interacting with it or what is happening to it).

? therm = heat ? hypothermia (less heat), thermometer (measuring heat) ? myocarditis ? (prefix) (root) (suffix) ? myo = muscle card = heart itis = inflammation

? ? ? ? ? ?

Prefix change: myocarditis = muscle layer of heart inflamed pericarditis = outer layer of heart inflamed endocarditis = inner layer of heart inflamed Suffix change: cardiologist = a physician specializing in the heart ? Cardiomyopathy = damage to heart muscle layer ? Cardiomegaly = enlargement of the heart

How Does Medical Terminology Work?
Most medical terms can be broken down into one or more word parts. (1) roots, (2) prefixes, (3) suffixes, and (4) linking or combining vowels.

? Pericarditis can be divided into three parts: peri - card - itis. "peri" translates to "surrounding", "card" translates to "heart", and "itis" translates to "inflammation". Hence, pericarditis is an inflammation of the area surrounding the heart, or an inflammation of the outer layer of the heart, anatomically known as the pericardium.

? An example of this would be the prefix "brady", which means "slow". If "brady" is added to the root "card", the term "bradycard" - which roughly means "slow heart" - is created. Then, if the suffix "ia" - which means "abnormal state" - is added to "bradycard", the medical term "bradycardia" is formed. The translation of bradycardia (brady - card - ia) is slow - heart abnormal state, or the abnormal state of a slow heart rate.

? As was discussed above, a medical term must have at least one root, but does not have to have a prefix and/or a suffix. An example of this is the term "sternocleidomastoid", which is a muscle that has attachments at the sternum, the clavicle, and the mastoid. The term sternocleidomastoid can be divided into three parts (three roots, in this case): stern - o - cleid - o - mastoid. Notice that there are vowels between the three roots.

? These are "linking or combining vowels", which serve to make a term easier to pronounce. The vowel used most of the time is "o", but other vowels such as "i" and "a" are also used. Combining vowels are often used between roots and suffixes or roots and other roots, but they are NOT used between prefixes and roots.
