About this Book

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

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.
