MedlinePlus, (CH, Jul'06, 43-6562) the National Library of Medicine's source for consumer health information, recently added free anatomy videos to its Web site. The nearly 80 videos featured were produced by A.D.A.M., a company with a long history of creating high-quality medical images with the guidance of and under review by physicians. (A.D.A.M. illustrations are included in the MedlinePlus encyclopedia.) Topics covered by the videos include normal human anatomy and physiology (blinking, blood pressure), pathophysiology of diseases (glaucoma, Parkinson's disease), and clinical interventions (liposuction heart bypass surgery). Videos have clear narration and closed-captioning. They vary in length (ranging from 15 seconds to 3 minutes) and structure (some have title screens, music, and sound effects; others do not). Some appear almost unfinished in comparison to others. Language level is appropriate for a general audience, though some videos use jargon that may be hard for a nonmedical person to understand. The videos, which are integrated into the MedlinePlus encyclopedia, appear here in an alphabetical listing only by title; given the assorted topics available, spotting a topic of interest quickly is somewhat challenging. Some titles add to this confusion, e.g., the video on pain is titled "Feeling Pain." Videos are available here in QuickTime format only. - Choice reviews.
