Any urgent potentially morbid or life-threatening occurrence related to a patient's tumor or treatment is considered an oncologic emergency
Narayana Cancer Centre's Oncological Emergencies team responds quickly to prevent death or severe permanent damage. The majority of oncologic emergencies fall into one of four categories: metabolic, hematologic, structural, or chemotherapy-related. Tumor lysis syndrome is a type of metabolic emergency marked by significant electrolyte abnormalities.
Our Oncological emergency’s department provides treatment of these conditions:
To reduce uric acid levels, our hospital treats the condition with aggressive hydration, allopurinol, or urate oxidase. Malignancy-related hypercalcemia is also treated here with aggressive rehydration, furosemide, and intravenous (IV) bisphosphonates. If a patient with CA has normovolemic hyponatremia, inappropriate antidiuretic hormone syndrome should be suspected. Fluid restriction and furosemide are commonly used to treat this metabolic disorder.
We offer chemotherapy, radiation, and IV stenting as treatment options. Dexamethasone, radiation, or surgery can be used to treat epidural spinal cord compression. Pericardiocentesis or a pericardial window procedure can be used to treat malignant pericardial effusion, which is frequently undiagnosed in CA patients.
