Medical Terminology Flash Cards: Abbreviations Starting with E: Part 1

This set of Medical Terminology flash cards includes abbreviations that begin with the letter "E." Some abbreviations in this series are used much more often than others; a few include some terms are a bit dated. Abbreviations may have multiple meanings, and many terms have multiple abbreviations. As more and more medical records become computerized, we will likely see fewer abbreviations except for narrative notes. Always spell out the term if there is a question about which term it represents.

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.
