Testing and Treatment
The treatment of blood conditions starts with blood tests of different types, which are performed in our state-of-the-art hematology laboratories, in order to minimize waiting times for blood counts and test results. Sophisticated hematological investigations and diagnostics are also carried out on-site, including bone marrow testing and spinal taps.
Clinicians in the department can supervise various blood and blood product transfusions and provide intravenous iron supplementation. They also carry out a wide range of immunotherapy treatments.
A major part of the treatment of cancer patients involves the administration of chemotherapy. Today there are more than 100 different types of cytotoxic medications that are used to destroy cancer cells in different parts of the body. They are generally delivered either orally or through peripheral intravenous or central venous catheter administrations.
In every case, hemato-oncologists will assess the best way to treat an individual patient’s cancer, determining the optimum method and the necessary course of treatment. All the department’s nurses are trained in the various chemotherapy treatments that are required, and are carefully supervised to ensure that treatments are carried out according to national and international protocols.
