Abstract

Ekstravazacija citostatikov je redek, vendar zelo neprijeten zaplet sistemskega zdravljenja raka. Ker lahko pripelje do hudih takojšnjih in poznih posledic za bolnika, zahteva posebno pozornost zdravstvenih delavcev, ki izvajajo intravenozno zdravljenje. V članku so zbrana priporočila za preprečevanje in prepoznavanje ekstravazacije, algoritem ukrepov ob njenem nastanku in možnosti uporabe antidotov.

Abstract (Eng)

Extravasation is a rare but very unpleasant complication of systemic cancer treatment and could be the cause of severe early and delayed consequences for the patient. Extravasation warrants special attention from the healthcare professionals involved in administering intravenous medications. The article summarizes and explains the most recent recommendations on extravasation in the clinical setting - from prevention and recognition to possible treatments with antidotes.
