4 Webcasts About Lung Transplantations

Some cystic fibrosis patients may be advised that if their lung function declines too much, they may need to consider having a lung transplant. In this series of webcasts from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, various aspects of lung transplantation are examined, which will help you understand the process and answer any questions you may have.

 

In this webcast titled Partnering For Care When Considering a Lung Transplant, Leslie Hazel, director of patient resources for the organization, speaks to Dr. Michael Boyle and Dr. Peter Mogayzel from the John Hopkins Hospital about the questions you should ask your cystic fibrosis care team before you consider a lung transplant and the things that you need to consider before undergoing the procedure. The two doctors talk about the aftercare needed following a lung transplant, the life expectancy following a lung transplant and when the right time for a lung transplant is.
