Is there a way to do a ''wildcard'' search on Google for medical terms?nm
Does anyone know a good psych website with terms, ect?
need a good surgical equipment website, anyone have one

Any help would be needed.  Learning to do acute care ops - and need some good surgical equipment sites. 



Can anyone tell me of a good medical search engine? nm
Does anyone have a good medical acronym website? tia nm
I would buy new a Dorland's Medical Dictionary, Stedmans Medical and Surgical Equipment...SM

and Tessier's The Surgical Word Book, 3rd edition.  Books you could buy used I would say would be Stedman's Pathology and Lab Medicine and Cardiology/Pulmonary word book.  These are all the books I use the most during my day.  You could buy other speciality word books as you need them and could probably go used with those.

I wouldn't bother with buying a drug book, new editions come out every year and I just stick to the FDA website and RXList as my drug references.

Also FYI, not a book, but I use my Stedman's Electronic Medical Dictationary a lot.  It's easier to open the program than it is to pick up a huge 30-pound dictionary.

Great website for drug slang terms

Some of you might remember that I'm working for my BIL doing chemical dependency training videos (transcribing them).

Well, I came across a term that I'm unfamiliar with.  I did a websearch and found this website.  Thought others might find it helpful so decided to post it.


Happy MT week!


Is there a way to do ''wildcard'' searches for medical terms on Google? nm
What to do if Word does not recognize your added medical terms - after updates? nm
I would not; most of the time those type files, although not usually hard medical terms, take lots l
to type and are very difficult as it is hard to hear with background noise, different speakers, usually no macros, etc. I think they are worth more pay, not less. I also get paid by the word at 0.008 and had figured mine to be about 0.09/line as well in the past. stick with where you are.
Have you checked out Martel Electronics website for equipment to help with this process?
I would think that if you rerecorded at a faster speed, the sound quality would be compromised. I think it was on www.martelelectronic.com that I saw equipment for this. Good luck.
nah, I think this might be sort of a medical equipment..nm
Try a search on Clerk of Courts website.
You might try searching on your Clerk of Courts website (if they have one). If he has been sued, it should be on there. If called as a witness probably not. Seems like if you are sued, though, or served to be a witness, they actually have a deputy come out and serve you in person. Could even be something like a parking ticket he didn't know he got. Let us know (if not real personal). Got me curious.
Stedman's Medical and Surgical Equipment Words is invaluable. nm
I always try to leave on good terms, even if

I really dislike the company.  Years and years ago I worked for a small local MTSO.  I wanted to work at home and she wouldn't let me so I quit.  I did tell her I would work PT at home only if she needed help and I knew she needed the help, but she was ticked at me and wouldn't give me any work.  About 2 months later she called me practically begging me to work for her, and I did.

I have applied to a company and been offered a position but turned it down and then have gone back later and applied again, but I haven't actually worked for a company and then asked to go back.

It is frequently recommended here to not quit one job before you have time to test the waters on the other, just in case. 

I would reapply or call them.  The worst they can do is say no. 


If you leave Co#1, do it on good terms so you

Does anyone know of a website, like this one, that deals with Medical Coding/Billing..sm

My husband is curious and wanting to get into Medical Billing/Coding and work from home like I do with transcription.  Does anyone know of a website, like this one, that offers so many jobs from home and information regarding coding and/or billing?  Thanks.  Also, if anyone has input on this please let us know.  Would love to find out which course is the best, etc....thanks!

Drugs! Lots of drugs! Sadly, you're probably like
most of us and don't have time to go to the doctor! Oh well! Feel better soon! You are not alone!
surgical equipment info is good
Might also be a good idea to ship the equipment
Good luck with your search
I know what you mean - i got sick 16 years ago and the first doctor couldn't find the problem - the next doctor found the problem and treated me - i've had problems ever since, but at least i got a diagnosis. i have also been to a few doctors who did say they didn't know - it's refreshing because you can spend less time with them and move on.
Anyone know of a good website

that is informative about how to start an independent digital transcription business. Has anyone here written or thought about writing a book? I guess I am looking for information about how to go from being a great transcriptionist to knowing more about the actual technology involved in the business. Or is it just a learn as you go type of thing.

Here's a good website
I always go for the standard Dictaphone ones ($18.99).

I hope this helps!

Anyone with a good website for the never ending..

That's a good question for the Company board or search the archives.

Do an archive search - good info posted a few weeks ago.
Any MTSO find a good place for their own website?

I recently received a quote for a local web design company, and it was close to $1,000! I don't have that kind of money. I would just like somewhere to tell a little bit about myself and the services I offer to Physicians.



Not a medical typing test but this website can test you..

It's called www.typingtest.com

Atleast it will give you an idea.. Sadly, I had to take it twice before I passed it LOL

Lots of recent posts if you do a Company Board search. Good luck! nm

Your QA needs to get a good medical dictionary. SM
I've been an MT for a long, long time and I have never heard of anything so ridiculous. 
need a good online medical dictionary
that I can use without having to download it because I'm not allowed to download anything and I can't intall my stedman's. 
What's a good source for very new medical terminology? sm
I'm wanting to avoid paying for a $95 subscription to something like The Latest Word, if possible. Is there a web site that posts new medical drugs and other terms that are so new they haven't hit the books yet?

What are good Medical Transcription Schools?

The response I got when asking about the credibility of MTAtHome.com wasn't very good.  So now I'm wondering, what are some good Medical Transcription schools that you can do online.  I'm looking for an online program.  Can anyone send me in the right direction?  I definately don't want to be jipped by a school that is not credible, which will then affect whether I get employment or not.  Thanks for your responses.

Future of medical coding is good
Medical coding is very lucrative career. Medical coders are not only required in hospitals but also in pharma industry and clinical research. Know more about coding ..
Actually, its not that good, try this one. Google it: Medical Transcription: What's in it for y
Not-so-good news re: medical coding,
I was watching the news tonight (Sacramento, CA area), and there was a story about a lady who was looking for work.  She had spent $10,000 on a coding/billing education, but can't find work.  Apparently that field is "saturated", as the newscaster said.  (Maybe from lots of MTs trying to get into that?)  Anway, I had sort of been thinking about going to school to learn coding, but now I think I'll pass.
Looking for a good medical spellchecker that doesn't cost as much?

Is everyone just using spellex or stedmans or are there lower cost alternatives? 

How did you find them in the first place?  Just curious because I don't want a cheaper product to act cheap also.

Any ideas?
