Full-color anatomical illustrations, labeled in Spanish and English, serve as a handy reference to help patients communicate their needs and concerns. Chapters open with an alphabetical list of common medical terms in English accompanied by Spanish translations.

Color-coded tabs identify the four main units of the guide for quick and easy access.
