Episode 214: Oncologic Emergencies 101: Syndrome of Inappropriate Antidiuretic Hormone
“Sometimes in our daily routine of taking care of patients, it’s more about looking at the treatment side effects. But look at those wide array of symptoms that can present with an oncologic emergency. They will kind of sneak up on you, and as an oncology nurse, we all need to be educated about them,” ONS member Diane Cope, PhD, APRN, BC, AOCNP®, director of nursing and oncology nurse practitioner at Florida Cancer Specialists and Research Institute in Fort Myers told Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS. During this episode, Cope explained the clinical manifestations associated with syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) and its medical and nursing interventions.
