Chapter 21 - One-Lung Ventilation

from Section 3 - Special Topics

Summary

One-lung ventilation in children undergoing non-cardiac surgery presents unique challenges that frequently require specialized equipment and creative solutions to achieve success. At the time of writing, the infrequency of these cases at any one institution limits our ability to perform prospective trials to compare different devices and approaches. As a result, most of the primary literature on this topic is based on individual experience and cases series. Despite this issue, this area of practice still continues to brim with innovation and creativity with multiple approaches leading to success.
