Medical Terminology Flash Cards: Abbreviations Starting with C: Part 6

This is Part 6 of my Medical Terminology flash cards featuring abbreviations beginning with the letter "C." Some medical abbreviations have multiple meanings, while some terms have more than one abbreviation. If you are in a specialty area, you will often immediately know which definition is appropriate; however, if you are in a general area, there are times when it is safest to write out the term rather than abbreviating it.

Directions
  1. Click on the first slide to enlarge to full screen.
  2. Click on the slide or thumbnail at the bottom to advance to the next slide.
  3. Study the abbreviations backwards by clicking on the last slide and clicking on the thumbnails to advance to the previous slides.
