Herein, we report a case of lung transplantation in a patient with profound preoperative hypercapnia, focusing on the cardiopulmonary bypass strategy used for brain perfusion during the operation. We applied the pH-stat method for acid-base regulation, and thereby achieved the desired outcome without any neurologic deficit.
Keywords: Lung transplantation, Hypercapnia, Cardiopulmonary bypass, Cerebrovascular circulation, pH stat
