Medical Spanish and Inglés para el Médico (Medical English) are complementary handbooks, the former being in English and the latter in Spanish. The two follow the same plan. "Medical Spanish" presents the points of Spanish grammar and of the Spanish language that the English-speaking physician might wish to acquire. Rules for pronunciation of Spanish, and grammatical principles and constructions are given in a clear, understandable style, and with a wholesome brevity. Sample prescriptions written in Spanish, tables of weights and measures, temperature and currency are shown. Following this is an extensive vademecum, or collection of phrases, such as might be used by the physician in his work.
