Resumen

FERNANDEZ, Patricio et al. Bridge to lung transplantation with a novel pumpless lung assist device: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2009, vol.137, n.10, pp.1363-1366. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872009001000013.

Devices such as Novalung® can be used as a bridge to lung transplantation while waiting for a suitable donor. We report a 50 year-old male with a terminal pulmonary fibrosis and candidate for lung transplantation. He was admitted to the hospital due to a severe deterioration of his respiratory condition, with the presence of severe respiratory acidosis despite conventional invasive respiratory support. Respiratory support with Novalung® was started, resulting in a progressive reduction ofpCOz that became normal ten hours after the installation of the device. Five days later a successful lung transplantation wasperformed.

Palabras clave : Lung assist device; Lung transplantation; Respiratory distress syndrome; adult.
