About this book

The expanded second edition of this key clinical reference provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive review of oncologic emergencies. It covers the diagnosis and management of the full range of emergencies caused directly by cancer and/or treatment, including chemotoxicity, radiotoxicity and post-surgical complications, as well as transplant-related issues and toxicities of novel antineoplastic agents and the new immunotherapies. The book also shows how the entire spectrum of clinical medicine is brought to bear in the care of cancer patients in the unique setting of the emergency department (ED), from health promotion and prevention, to treatment and palliative care. Recognizing the multiple, overlapping contexts in which emergency care of cancer patients occurs, the book addresses clinically crucial interdisciplinary topics such as the ethics of ED cancer care, analgesic misuse and abuse, informatics, quality improvement and more. Finally, perspectives on care system and social forces that shape ED cancer care, such as cancer care disparities and care models, frame the book as a whole. Edited and written by world-renowned experts in emergency medicine and oncology, the Second Edition of Oncologic Emergency Medicine: Principles and Practice is the definitive resource for emergency physicians, oncologists, internists, family physicians, emergency nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and policy makers as well as pre and postgraduate trainees.
