What happens on the day of surgery?

You will report to the transplant unit, where you will change into a hospital gown and will undergo final blood tests and X-rays. The transplant coordinator, nurses and doctors will get you ready for the surgery. You will be given some medications and taken to a pre-operative holding area where you will wait for the final word to proceed from the lung harvesting team. You will then be taken to the operating room. After the appropriate form of anesthesia is administered, surgery will be performed.
