Methods This was a single-center retrospective study of all sarcoidosis p...

s S271 Purpose: Extended criteria donor lungs are increasingly used for transplantation. The arterial partial pressure of oxygen of donors at organ offer is widely regarded as an important marker for the quality and transplantability of the lung. More precise, a PaO2/FiO2 300 mmHg. Methods: 464 consecutive lung transplantations performed at our centre between April 2010 and October 2013 were analyzed. Outcome parameters included overall survival, hospital mortality and correlation of duration of...

The National Emphysema Treatment Trial used a multidisciplinary team approach to implement the maximum medical care protocol, including adjustment of medications and outpatient pulmonary rehabilitation for all patients and nutritional and psychological counseling as needed. This article discusses the benefits of such an approach in the care of the patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Team member roles complement each other and contribute to the goal of providing the highest-qualit...
