Emergencies in Cancer Care

Synopsis
Looks at some of the more common ‘emergencies’ experienced by patients with cancer. Covers infection, altered consciousness, compression of the spinal column, obstruction of the vena cava. In dramatisations, patients being admitted to hospital, diagnosed and treated are seen from both the doctor’s and patient’s viewpoint. Interviews with consultants and a senior nurse are intercut to give the expert overview.
