Special Issue "Oncologic Emergencies: The Emergency Care of Cancer Patients"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2024 | Viewed by 928
Interests: oncologic emergencies; venous thromboembolisms; immunotherapy adverse events; sepsis; biomedical informatics
As the number of patients with active cancer is expected to increase, so are visits to the emergency departments and other high-acuity urgent care facilities. Considering the complexity of the presented emergency problems caused by cancer, antineoplastic treatments, and comorbidities, the proper diagnosis and management of oncologic emergencies are vital to addressing the root causes to prevent or minimize any morbidities and mortalities related to these emergency encounters. This Special Issue focuses on common conditions among cancer patients in emergency departments and other urgent care centers. These conditions include, but are not limited to, the following: 1) infection, sepsis, and febrile neutropenia; 2) treatment-related adverse events of cytotoxic chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and immunotherapy; 3) metabolic emergencies, including tumor lysis syndrome and humoral paraneoplastic syndromes; 4) cancer-related complications including venous thromboembolism, malignant spinal cord compression, thoracoabdominopelvic viscus obstructions, and superior vena cava syndrome; and 5) cancer pain.
