    In a few days we will have the first patient for a lung lavage using a double-lumen intubation.

    If you have done any whole lung lavage, can you tell me something about it?

    I have taken care of a pt like this post procedure. After an hour or so of getting to the unit he was on a nasal cannula eating a cheeseburger. Pretty awesome! The procedure was done in one of our ORs, not on the unit so I have no idea how the process goes. Let us know what it's like.
