Oncological Emergencies

Oncological emergencies can relate either to the cancer itself or is treatment. Early diagnosis and treatment are necessary to prevent major morbidity or mortality. Optimal outcomes in these patients rely on recognition of early symptoms and signs and use of the appropriate therapy. This book covers cancer-related and treatment-related oncological emergencies and their management in a clear, accessible style through the use of bullet lists, algorithms and key points to ensure effective and immediate treatment and management. As the number of cancer patients receiving treatment is increasing, so the number of clinicians encountering emergencies is rising so clear guidelines dealing with possible complications should prove invaluable. The book is aimed primarily at trainees in oncology and oncologists and will also be useful to primary care doctors and nurses and those working in emergency medicine.
