Increasing numbers of individuals leading normal lives have transplanted organs. They may appear in any hospital for treatment of trauma or general diseases. Common anaesthesia methods can be used for these patients, but safe conduct of anaesthesia requires knowledge of the immunosuppression, risk factors, and altered physiology or drug actions. This article reviews the anaesthesia-related literature on patients with transplanted organs.
