In this new fourth edition, every term was individually reviewed and thousands of entries were expanded or improved. About 2,000 new terms were added. New procedures, concepts and drugs account for many of these added terms. Special attention is paid to mental health- many psychiatric terms have been added, and because providers need to know what their patients are feeling, terms that describe human emotions have been added as well.
