Use the Merck Manual online for overviews on illness and treatments.

Merck Manual Home EditionWhen doctors need to know about illness, they turn to The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy. (http://www.merck.com/mmpe/index.html) But laypeople, the patients and caregivers, also need clear current information about what ails us and what to do about it. The Home Edition, free and searchable, is for us! In addition to facts about disease, it also gives information about common health tests: what they are for and what the results mean.  It will even pronounce medical words out loud so that we can, too, without looking stupid. Say it with me now: “oligodendroglioma.”
