– End-stage diseases such as advanced kidney injury; myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure; multi-organ failure; respiratory failure, including the use of mechanical ventilation; and complex infections.
– Lung-specific diseases, including pleural diseases, obstructive sleep apnea, pulmonary hypertension, interstitial lung diseases, and exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
