RUIZ, Vanesa Romina; DA LOZZO, Alejandro Gabriel  and  MIDLEY, Alejandro Daniel. Optimización del Soporte Ventilatorio del Donante Pulmonar: Revisión Bibliográfica. Rev. am. med. respir. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp.174-179. ISSN 1852-236X.

The shortage of cadaveric organ donors for lung transplantation is a global problem. One of the consequences of poor ventilatory support in potential lung donors is an increase in organ rejection by the lung transplant team. The aim of the revision is to gather and compile information about ventilator support and strategies in potential lung donors to optimize organ condition before harvest.

Keywords : Lung transplantation; Respiration artificial; Brain death; Tissue and organ procurement.
