Abstract

The early postoperative care in the management of the lung-transplant patient has significantly changed over the past two decades. The advances in donor preservation, improved surgical techniques, better understanding of immunosuppression and nosocomial infection along with multidisciplinary care have contributed to these changes. Although management of the lung-transplant patient is similar in many aspects to that of a critically ill postsurgical patient in the immediate postoperative period, the care of these patients is challenging, and a multidisciplinary team familiar with transplant care is important to manage specific issues related to lung transplantation.
