Anesthesia for Lung Transplantation.
Perioperative management of patients undergoing lung transplantation is challenging and requires constant communication among the surgical, anesthesia, perfusion, and nursing teams. Although all aspects of anesthetic management are important, certain intraoperative strategies (mechanical ventilation, fluid management, extracorporeal mechanical support deployment) have tremendous impact on the subsequent evolution of the lung transplant recipient, especially with respect to allograft function, and should be carefully considered. This review highlights some of the intraoperative anesthetic challenges and opportunities during lung transplantation.
