Understanding and Managing Oncologic Emergencies Summary

Understanding and Managing Oncologic Emergencies: A Resource for Nurses by Marcelle Kaplan

As the number of individuals living with cancer increases, so does the potential for serious complications from the disease or treatment. The need is stronger than ever for definitive information on effective interventions when an oncologic emergency occurs to prevent devastating functional losses and reduce the risk of death.

Thoroughly updated and expanded, the third edition of Understanding and Managing Oncologic Emergencies: A Resource for Nurses is a comprehensive yet practical guide to understanding and managing oncologic emergencies from the nursing perspective. Featuring "Fast Facts" sections in each chapter, the book helps readers: identify which patients are at increased risk for oncologic emergencies, recognize the signs and symptoms associated with the complications, understand the underlying pathophysiologic processes, learn pertinent diagnostic evaluations and therapeutic interventions, assess patients appropriate, and apply nursing management strategies across a continuum from acute through chronic care and rehabilitation.

The increased use of targeted and immunologic therapies is resulting in increased risk of severe or fatal skin reactions. A new chapter on cutaneous toxicities provides valuable information to help nurses recognize and manage these reactions quickly. This book is an essential resource for nurses and other professionals, providing the knowledge needed to enhance patient outcomes when an oncologic emergency occurs.

Understanding and Managing Oncologic Emergencies Reviews

This impressive book includes all the key oncologic emergencies in a clear accessible format".

"This book would be extremely useful for those working in any area of oncology as many of the situations discussed are seen throughout the speciality. It would also be useful as a reference point in the emergency care setting or any area where patients with oncological conditions are likely to present unexpectedly with acute problems."

- Rebecca Myatt, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, 'Nursing Times'.
