Oncology nurses must stay cognizant of the warning signs and management approaches. ONS member Roberta Kaplow, RN, PhD, CCRN, AOCNS®, clinical nurse specialist at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA, and member of the Metro Atlanta ONS Chapter, joins Stephanie Jardine, BSN, RN, oncology clinical specialist at ONS, to discuss the latest nursing management and prevention strategies for cardiac tamponade.
