An abnormal swelling of tissue in the lungs due to fluid build-up.
Is very dangerous condition of the lungs. See what is a Material Safety Data Sheet , Fire breathing guide
see Edema, Pulmonary
Swelling of the cells of the lungs, associated with an outpouring of fluid from the capillaries into the pulmonary spaces, producing severe shortness of breath. In later stages, produces expectoration of frothy pink serous fluid and cyanosis.
Filling of the lungs with fluid, which produces coughing and difficulty breathing.
defined radiographically as diffuse, bilateral consolidation by fluid' other materials can fill air spaces bilaterally and give the same radiographic pattern.
accumulation of fluid in the lungs usually due to heart failure.
fluid accumulation in intercellular tissue spaces of the lung.
abnormal accumulation of fluid in the lungs[close window
A condition, usually acute, but sometimes chronic, where fluid builds up in the lungs. This often occurs as a response to left ventricular failure in ischemic heart disease, hypertension, or aortic valve disease.
a condition in which there is a fluid accumulation in the lungs caused by an incorrectly functioning heart.
Severe state of increased fluid within the lung, leading to flooding of the alveoli; often result of ineffective pump function of the heart, but noncardiac causes also exist.
An abnormal accumulation of fluid in the lungs. It can occur in association with severe heart failure when watery fluid "leaks" out of the pulmonary capillaries into the interstitium of the lung and, eventually, into the alveoli and terminal airways.
Fluid in lung tissues, often caused by congestive heart failure.
Edema of the lungs.
a condition in which there is a fluid accumulation in the lungs caused most often by a weak heart or a malfunctioning heart valve.
abnormal accumulation of fluid from the blood in the tissue and air spaces of the lungs making breathing difficult.
condition (usually acute, but sometimes chronic) that occurs when too much fluid accumulates in the lungs, blocking transport of oxygen into the blood.
Noninflammatory buildup of fluid in the tissues and air spaces within the lungs.
An accumulation of fluid in the tissues of the lungs.
Fluid buildup in the lungs.
Effusion of serous fluid into the alveoli and interstitial tissue of the lungs. Caused by a weakening or failure of the left ventricle, which allows blood to back up and increase pressure in the pulmonary capillaries. Is life threatening
Pulmonary edema (American English) or oedema (British English) is swelling and/or fluid accumulation in the lungs. It leads to impaired gas exchange and may cause respiratory failure. It is due to either failure of the heart to remove fluid from the lung circulation ("cardiogenic pulmonary edema"), or due to a direct injury to the lung parenchyma ("noncardiogenic pulmonary edema").Ware LB, Matthay MA.
