About this book

This new resource on managing oncologic emergencies is directed at all health care professionals who care for patients with cancer or survivors. Edited and written by clinician-experts at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, the book covers the full range of oncologic emergencies, from cardiac and neurologic to orthopedic to hematologic, and addresses important palliative care, ethical, and Emergency Department considerations.

Chapters are structured with busy clinicians in emergent and urgent settings in mind, and each chapter concludes with a series of key practice points and a list of suggested readings for those who wish to delve deeper into a subject.

For any clinician facing the increasing number of patients who experience an oncologic emergency, this is an up-to-date, clinically focused, and authoritative resource.

Reviews

“The focus is on the treatment of oncologic emergencies in cancer patients and survivors. This is a worthy objective … . The authors are successful in collecting and organizing a large amount of information in a relatively small book. The intended audience is ‘anyone who is ever faced with an acutely ill cancer patient or survivor.’ … I would recommend it to clinicians who are caring more exclusively for oncology patients.” (Michael D. Zwank, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2016)
