Abstract

The number of lung transplants performed annually is increasing. It is becoming more likely that these patients will present post transplantation to anesthesiologists who have little experience in dealing with the physiological, pharmacological, medical and surgical problems that these patients present. This article discusses the management of a patient presenting for surgery after lung transplantation.
