Toggle accordion item

The lungs provide your entire body with oxygen and remove carbon dioxide. When lungs can no longer exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide, a patient is considered in end-stage lung failure and lung transplantation is considered.

Several different diseases can lead to end-stage lung failure leading to a lung transplant, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), interstitial lung disease, and primary pulmonary hypertension.
