Congestive heart failure

Congestive heart failure is a common cause of pulmonary edoema. When the heart is unable to adequately pump blood, blood can back up into the veins that carry blood to the lungs.
Fluid is pushed into the lungs' air gaps (alveoli) as the pressure in these blood vessels rises. This fluid hinders the usual passage of oxygen via the lungs. Shortness of breath is caused by the combination of these two variables.
Congestive heart failure resulting in pulmonary edoema can be caused by:
A heart attack, or any cardiac illness that weakens or stiffens the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy), is a type of heart attack.
Heart valve leakage or narrowing (mitral or aortic valves)
Hypertension (severe, sudden high blood pressure)
Pulmonary edema can also be caused by the following factors:
  • Certain medications
  • Exposed to high altitudes
  • Failure of the kidneys
  • Blood vessels that are narrow and carry blood to the kidneys
  • Poisonous gas or severe infection causes lung damage.
  • Serious injury
