How do I know if I am eligible for a lung transplant?

The most important factor is your physical condition.

You must be 65 years of age or less for single lung transplantation, have a poor prognosis (anticipated 18 to 24-month survival), have no other life-threatening diseases and have a good rehabilitation potential, as well as emotional stability and deep understanding of the implications.
