Paediatric Haemotology and Oncology (Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Pediatrics)

     Product Description
 While survival rates for children with cancer have increased in recent
times, the increased use of more aggressive therapies has brought with
it significant adverse effects. Therefore, the aim of pediatric
oncologists has become to achieve "cure at least cost" by the
appropriate reduction of the intensity and/or duration of treatment in
carefully identified good prognosis patients.
By comprehensively
covering these issues, this handbook aims to provide residents in
pediatric hematology and oncology, as well as staff in related medical
or other healthcare disciplines, with an easily accessible source of
information about the basic principles of childhood cancer and leukemia,
as well as much of the more detailed specialist knowledge required to
care for children with these conditions. Divided into sections to allow
quick access to the necessary information, the handbook covers general
principles of diagnosis and treatment, short and long term care, and
oncological emergencies before moving on to chapters on specific
disease. Normal values and useful websites are also included for
