Specialized care for cancer-related emergencies and acute conditions has evolved into a new discipline - a hybrid of oncology and emergency medicine. However, most cancer patients are t treated for their emergencies at specialized centers; rather, they go to acute care facilities in general hospitals or emergency rooms. The purpose of Oncologic Emergencies is to provide an additional resource for primary care providers (internists, family practitioners, advanced clinical practitioners), emergency physicians, oncologists, and other healthcare providers who may t see oncology patients on a regular basis. Written by experts in acute care oncology, Oncologic Emergencies is an informative and authoritative review of requirements for acute symptom management in cancer patients. The text is extensively indexed for easy access and retrieval of information. Chapters discuss triage, life and death situations, major presenting symptoms, diagstic imaging, and pathophysiology of emergent illness. Additional chapters focus on the organ system (including pain emergencies and psychiatric emergencies) with other chapters dedicated to pediatric and geriatric cancer patients. Oncologic Emergencies is a compact, concise and comprehensive guide to the management of acute and emergency situations relating to cancer.
