Abstract

Toxicity of the pulmonary region in persons with cancer can have singular or multidimensional causes. The seven distinct pulmonary toxicities are embolism, edema, pleural effusion, fibrosis, alveolitis, bronchiolitis obliterans, and radiation-induced pneumonitis. Although difficult to diagnose, all of these toxicities can be minimized by early assessment and immediate interventions. Astute nursing assessments and comprehensive treatment can make a difference in quality and quantity of life.
