    Exanguination or Exsanguination, which one is right?

    OK, just come accross both of the words (Exanguination and Exsanguination) when helping my girlfriend with her medschool homework. Which one is right? I've done some googling and found that both words seems to be interchangeable . To me, roughly, both refers to "bleeding". Is there any significant difference between both variants?

    Anyway, the med-book writes "exanguination". Furthermore, english is not my native language

    dictionary.reference.com has "exsanguination", and doesn't have "exanguination"

    definitely exsanguination. The word is derived from a Latin root sangui-. Dropping the "s" would be a mistake.

    Or you could try a real dictionary such as Chambers, Collins or Oxford. If you use US English, I understand Webster's is an appropriate alternative.

    Very touchy about our dictionaries, aren't we? I'd hate to see what you'd do if he said something about your mother...
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.
