Organ Specific Considerations: Lung

Jinny Ha, Stephen Broderick and Errol Bush

Abstract

Donor lung assessment has evolved significantly as experience grows in the field of cardiopulmonary transplantation and organ donors are more actively managed with consideration of their pulmonary function. This chapter evaluates the current criteria employed in many centers evaluating traditional assessments of oxygenation and ventilation to avoid early graft dysfunction secondary to ischemia-reperfusion injury using modern ventilator and preservation fluids and techniques.
