Recent years have witnessed evolution of lung allocation strategies to prioritize sicker recipients. In the pre-transplant period, this has translated into increased utilization of invasive extracorporeal or mechanical ventilatory support as a bridge to lung transplantation. The morbidity associated with these strategies warrants consideration to less invasive respiratory support modalities. Herein, we present a case highlighting successful bridge to lung transplantation with a relatively non-invasive negative pressure ventilator.
