The word originates from a German word Morphin which translates to Morpheus so the word first began with the ancient Greek god Morpheus, who was the god of dreams and whose father was Hypnos, the god of sleep. Morphine then came to be present after a scientist named Ster ü rner found it being the main ingredient in opium and named it after Morpheus, and is now used in many procedures that have painful effects or involve pain in general.

...reveals the origin of numerous medical terms and common medical slang...the definitions of each term is written in clear, simple language.
I bought this book to understand a term my PCP used who assumed that I knew the meaning. I read the meaning of the term and then got hooked by reading more terms. As a former student of Latin, this book made a lot of sense and gave me more of an appreciation for the medical terms.
This was written by a gastroenterologist at Scripps Green Clinic, one of San Diego's local hospitals. I got my first copy in 1985, when I was a vascular sonography student, and gave copies as gifts to my clinical preceptors. It deepens one's knowledge of medical terms and is just plain enjoyable reading as well. You don't even have to be in the medical business to enjoy it, I think. Strongly recommended.
Dr Haubrich's book is great! I own the hardcover first edition, and have found it quite useful. There are other older books on medical etymology (usually gathering dust in the stacks of medical libraries) that are much more detailed and have more information, but Dr Haubrich's is the most readable. Sometimes I just pick up this book and browse (can't do that with the other books!). All in all, I would highly recommend this book to everyone interested in this subject.
The author includes a lot of terminology that I would expect to be excluded. The minutiae is what makes this book outstanding. Fully develop your armamentarium of medical terms with this book!
adventure time
I purchased this because I'm an etymology buff and I'm taking gross anatomy in medical school. The only complaint I have is that there are some terms (for the less significant structures) that are not included. But it's very helpful and very entertaining on occasion. Thank you, Dr. Haubrich.
interesting book
As a nursing student this is the single most used book I own. It's unbelievably helpful in understanding and memorizing medical terms. I love it.
Man, this book helps a lot its essential and has useful content. not all the words in medicine but for medstudents its great.
