Czech doctors set a new world record: a patient with pulmonary hypertension kept successfully on artificial lung for more than 143 days!
A 36 year old woman, a mother of a two year old child, was admitted to the Prague Faculty hospital with a severe form of lung hypertension. She was successfully kept on the artificial lung bypass for more than 4 months. The previous world record was 79 days. In the beginning , her serious health condition did not enable transplantation. Later on, during corona times, no suitable lung donor could have been found for this patient with a rare blood group. On June 18, the patient underwent a successful lung transplant in Motol Hospital and is now recovering in the intensive care unit.
