Pediatric lung transplantation

Abstract

Children undergoing lung transplantation present a unique constellation of issues that require compulsive management based upon their underlying diagnosis, state of debilitation, post-transplant needs, and immunosuppression. The ventilator management is also somewhat different from a typically ill child. This chapter will focus on those unique aspects of this group of children with an emphasis on complications seen and the management recommended.
