Lung Transplant Program Preventing Infection Post-transplant

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Preventing infection while on immunosuppressant drugs

Our goal is to help your child live as full and normal a life as possible, before and after transplant.

The tabs above are guidelines that can help decrease the risk of infection. Being knowledgeable and making safer choices are the best defenses against infection.

These guidelines are especially important:

  • During the first six months after transplant when the immune system is most suppressed
  • When immunosuppression is increased, such as during episodes of rejection

Your transplant team will explain how suppressed your child’s immune system is and give you specific steps you can take to decrease the risk of infection.

Remember, your child’s transplant team is here to help keep your child healthy. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
