Lung transplant recipients are among the most complex critically-ill patients in the peri-transplant phase. In this chapter, a comprehensive multi-organ system review of lung transplant recipient management is undertaken, after a brief summary of the pre-implantation donor organ management and the conduct of the transplantation procedures themselves. Specific issues addressed that are unique to the transplant recipient include technical complications, primary allograft dysfunction, and hyperacute and acute allograft rejection. Since issues in heart and lung transplantation are reviewed separately, heart-lung transplantation is not discussed as an independent topic.
