Clinical Problems in Oncology: A Practical Guide to Management is an easy-to-use, compact reference with essential, practical information on managing oncological emergencies, as well as the side effects and complications of cancer and its treatment. Because patient responses can vary widely, depending on the type of treatment prescribed, this resource offers medical professionals the specific information they need to improve the evaluation and treatment of cancer patients at the point of care. The compact format includes a wide range of clinical information, from the dose of drugs that would typically be used, through guidance on the practical procedures that are frequently used to treat oncology patients. Some of the book's highlights include: toxicity grading and management, including at-a-glance summaries of the most common toxicities associated with chemotherapy; prescribing guidelines, including how to write up electrolyte replacement properly; information on specialised oncology procedures (such as SIR spheres), and how to manage complications; types of vascular access lines and how to check their position, access them and troubleshoot problems; and drug and dosing guidelines for patients being started on the Liverpool Care Pathway. With an expert team of writers who have contributed materials in their areas of expertise, Clinical Problems in Oncology is an ideal reference for oncologists in training, oncologists in non-training positions, oncology registrars and general practitioners.
