In Australia; A lung transplant is the replacement of one or both diseased lungs with healthy lungs from a human donor. Lung transplants may be recommended as last resort treatment for patients with lung failure diseases such as cystic fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis, emphysema, COPD or pulmonary hypertension.

Lung transplants require lungs to be donated by someone who is declared brain-dead but who remains on life support.
