Everything you need to know to keep your family healthy.

When it comes to your family's health, information is the best medicine.

"When is my baby's crying serious and when is it normal?"
"What's the best way to treat a nosebleed?"
"The Doctor says our daughter might have scoliosis... what is it?"
"Are those Chicken Pox spots?"

You've got dozens of questions about your family's health. And now, finally, it's easy to get answers you can trust. Even when your doctor's busy. Or the library's closed. Or it's 3 a.m. You'll find everything you need to know in an authoritative, easy-to-use reference created for families just like yours.

An interactive medical dictionary and health guide.
You'll never be confused about the meaning of a medical term again. The interactive 10,000-word Medical Dictionary finds what you want fast... even if you can't spell it! Its powerful "search" features will amaze you.

Plus, you'll get instant answers to questions about poison antidotes, disease incubation periods, blood test results, immunization schedules, Medicare payments and more... with the on-line health guide.

Both the dictionary and health guide are based on best-selling The New American Medical Dictionary and Health Manual by Dr. Robert E. Rothenberg. Millions use and rely on it.

Your children's health from A to Z.
You also get step-by-step instructions for recognizing and reacting to any health problem your child might encounter. Compiled by a distinguished panel of pediatric physicians, this part of the program gives you:

  • First aid instructions for burns, poisonings and accidents.
  • Signs and symptoms of every major childhood illness.
  • Actions to take, including when to call your doctor and what to do at home.
  • Important information on drugs, treatments and medical tests.
  • Up-to-date medical findings on pregnancy and prenatal care.
  • And much more!

You get three trusted health references in one easy-to-use interactive package- the best-selling The New American Medical Dictionary and Health Manual by Dr. Robert Rothenberg and The New American Encyclopedia of Children's Health, written by a panel of trusted pediatricians.

Type in "Heart AND artery" and you get a complete list of related medical terms. The interactive search power makes the 10,000 word medical dictionary incredibly useful!
