This essential book is a comprehensive yet practical handbook on oncologic emergencies containing the important and current information on treating cancer patients in acute care settings such as emergency and urgent care departments and centers. A concise and evidence-based guide, it is the go-to resource for any acute care medical practitioner treating cancer patients, demystifying the processes of evaluating, diagnosing, and managing emergencies that often arise in the cancer patient population. The first part of the book offers an overview of cancer, anti-cancer treatment and pain and palliative care in the emergency department. It then moves on to provide a systems-based approach covering neurologic, cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, respiratory, lymphatic system, and integumentary cancer complications. The book also discusses the side effects of cancer treatments such as pain, delirium, dyspnea, and immunotherapy related adverse events, and importantly helps to bridge the gap between oncologic advancements for emergency medicine specialists.

  • Designed not only to be used in real-time to help practitioners with diagnosis, management, and treatment of oncologic emergencies but as a reference book on key oncologic emergencies for use in emergency medicine training
  • Captures and distils the most important advancements in the field of oncology and side effects of new treatments for acute care practitioners, who are not routinely update on such developments
  • Topics are laid out in outline format with key information presented in easy-to-read bullet points to allow for quick reading and comprehension of each section


Reviews & endorsements

'Dr. Monica Wattana has assembled 'must have' information to diagnose and treat a wide variety of urgent and emergent conditions experienced by the cancer patient, providing key information presented in an easily digestible format to assist the busy clinician. Featuring 'clinical pearls' and up-to-date references in each chapter, this text provides concise reviews of clinically important cancer emergencies with which the general practitioner may be less familiar. Easy access to the numerous grading and risk-stratifying schemes involved in cancer care, alongside their acronyms and together in one source, will save users valuable time. This is a welcome aid for medical students, residents, nurses, and midlevel practitioners facing questions on ward rounds or in certification exams, offering us the essential guidance to provide superior care to the growing number of patients with cancer emergencies.'
