Discussion post | medical terminology |

 Answer both questions below. Post on three separate days to the discussion board. Make an initial post that answers both questions, and then make two more posts on separate days to two different classmates. It is important to review the Discussion Board rubric to understand the expectations and grading criteria. Include at least one reference and citation using APA 6th edition format. 


1) How do we communicate location on the human body, and why is it not feasible to simply use the terms “up/down” and “above/below”? Why is important that medical terminology is consistent and uniform throughout the world? 

2) Choose any two positional or directional terms and use them in two different sentences. For example, Supine: The patient was placed in the supine position. Superficial: The wound was superficial.
