Pulmonary edema &Cardiovascular Disorders

Symptoms may start suddenly and get worse quickly. They include:

  • Extreme shortness of breath and trouble breathing
  • Tightness and pain in the chest
  • Wheezing, coughing
  • Paleness
  • Sweating
  • Bluish nails and lips
  • Pink, frothy mucus coming from nose and mouth

If pulmonary edema is related to congestive heart failure, symptoms may come on more slowly. You may notice shortness of breath when you are lying down, quick weight gain from retaining fluid, and fatigue.

What Causes It?

The most common cause of pulmonary edema is heart failure. But not every case is due to heart problems. Other risk factors for pulmonary edema include:

  • Acute, severe asthma
  • High blood pressure, including preeclampsia
  • Diabetes
  • Coronary or valvular heart disease
  • Obesity
  • Being at a high altitude, especially exercising
  • Central nervous system injury
  • Infection, including pneumonia
  • Hanta virus
  • Breathing in toxins
  • Having a blood transfusion
  • Tonsilectomy
