Medical Terminology Flash Cards: Abbreviations Starting with A: Part 5

Learning medical terminology abbreviations is a core component of mastering a medical terminology course. This set of flashcards includes fifteen medical terminology abbreviations beginning with the letter "A." Abbreviations have more than one meaning; therefore, slides that include multiple meanings are separated by semicolons. Medical terms may have more than one abbreviation, and slides including multiple abbreviations are separated by commas.

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.
