Abstract

Summary Patients receiving allogeneic bone marrow transplant experience multiple complications. Specifically, infection, renal complications, VOD, and GVHD can produce life-threatening toxicity. Many of the treatments cause further compromise of major organs. Astute nursing assessment and prompt interventions can decrease the severity experienced by the patient. Each of these complications requires ongoing study to develop new therapies for management.
