Medical Terminology Questions on CPC Exam


Medical terminology on the CPC exam. This
is one Alicia was going to answer so I will try to do my best here. What type of medical
terminology would be on the test? Basically you can be asked any medical terminology question
possible, so, its advisable to take a medical terminology course especially with ICD-10
coming up which is going to require you to have a lot more anatomy understanding that
ICD-9. If you need a course, we just happen to have one on medical terminology, anatomy
for ICD-10 coding. So we chose that book because it’s the only one that I found with medical
terminology and anatomy and for coders. So its currently selling for $48.72 if you want
to do self study or if you want to do it with the instructor coaching you and all of that,
take the course from us and you will get a certificate of completion and all that good
stuff. I will highlight the medical terminology course later in the presentation…you know
I will, right?! This is another book Alicia was recommending and I recommend too that
is heavy in terminology review for the CPC exam and that’s Carol Buck’s CPC coding
exam review, called the certification step. It sells on Amazon for about $50. Here is a sample question: This term means
the surgical removal of the fallopian tube. Ligation, hysterectomy, salpingostomy, salpingostomy.
So, which do you think it is? Lets do another poll. Did you get that one Boyd? Go ahead
and fill out the poll, which do you think is the correct answer? #1, 2, 3 or 4 or A,
B, C, D…I’m not sure how its being presented to you. Boyd: This term means a surgical removal of
the fallopian tube – and then you can go ahead and put what they actually say. Laureen: Ligation, hysterectomy, salpingostomy
or salpingectomy. 84% voted so I’m going to close the poll
in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. 15% said ligation, 16% said hysterectomy,
7% said salpingostomy and 62% said salpingectomy so you, answer D is correct. So good job.
What is interesting with this for medical terminology, what you really want to focus
on is the suffixes and the prefixes. In this case if you knew your suffixes ectomy vs.
ostomy, since this says surgical removal which is what ectomy means, you could throw out
1 and 3. Then what you need to know is what is the root word for fallopian tube and you
know it is not hyster for that is the uterus, you probably know that and ligation you know
means tying off so when you do that process of elimination, you know its #4. So, good
job.
