Medword.com Medical Transcriptionist "Must Haves"

A Listmania! list by Stephen O'Mara "Medword Owner" (Surrey, BC Canada)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Medword Medical Transcription (medword.com) recommends that MTs set a goal to eventually have all the following types of basic medical reference books and software products. Medword recommends these particular products because our experience using these and other similar products in our medical transcription office (established 1989), they seem to be the best combination of value for price - more commonly called "Best Buys." This personal library of reference materials will enable a medical transcriptionist to find medical words, drug names, procedures, abbreviations, etc., in order to transcribe dictation as accurately as possible. Medical books on specific areas of medicine are also very useful, as they have a more complete listing of words and procedures for many specialties."
Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary: 20th Edition (Thumb Index)
1.  Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary: 20th Edition (Thumb Index) by Donald Venes
The list author says:
  "One of Medword.com's MT "Must Haves"

A long-standing top favorite of many experienced medical transcriptionists. This version, with the thumb index, allows for quick searching to verify medical words, terms, phrases, and procedures. The appendix is also chock-full of information on lab values, weight and volume conversions - and much more. The appendices are worth the value of the book alone."
