Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Prevalence of sleep disordered breathing [ Time Frame: 1 month after lung transplantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Polysomnography will be performed at discharge from the hospital (1 month average)

  • Prevalence of sleep disordered breathing [ Time Frame: 1 year after lung transplantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Polysomnographic evaluation

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pulmonary function [ Time Frame: 1 year after lung transplantation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Effect of SDB on pulmonary function/BOS
