This essential handbook provides a practical, accessible guide to emergency situations encountered in palliative care practice. Using a system of icons, and structured around frequently encountered symptoms, it is split into two sections. The first section explores how patients withlife-limiting illnesses such as cancer, AIDS, and end-stage organ failure normally present, and looks at the reversibility of their condition. The second section provides a detailed approach to specific clinical conditions, and is for use once the clinical diagnosis has been reached on the basis ofthe presenting symptoms.The book will provide trainees in palliative medicine, nurses, family doctors, and other allied health professionals with a pocket guide to the emergency care of people requiring palliative and supportive care, and will complement the Oxford Handbook of Palliative Care.
