  • Congestive Heart Failure

    After 2 months of CHM treatment, the follow-up chest X-ray showed great improvements in pulmonary edema and cardiomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This causes systemic or pulmonary edema or both.[health.howstuffworks.com] Major criteria: · Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea · Neck vein distention · Rales · Radiographic cardiomegaly (increasing heart size on chest radiography) · Acute pulmonary edema[web.archive.org]

  • Heart Failure

  • Hypertensive Crisis

    edema despite a continuing high dose of nitroprusside infusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] edema, stroke or transient ischemic attack).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Breathlessness, cough, and the coughing up of blood-stained sputum are characteristic signs of pulmonary edema, the swelling of lung tissue due to left ventricular failure[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cardiomyopathy

    DIAGNOSIS: The chest x-ray revealed pulmonary edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Multiple sclerosis is increasingly being recognized in association with cardiovascular dysfunction, which can manifest with cardiomyopathy, pulmonary edema (Kaplan et al.,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CASE PRESENTATION: A 55-year-old woman presented with frank pulmonary edema and received a diagnosis of noncompaction cardiomyopathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Coronary Syndrome

    Rupture of the septum results in too much blood being diverted to the lungs, causing accumulation of fluid (pulmonary edema).[merckmanuals.com] Hemodynamic compromise Systolic blood pressure 90 mmHg Signs of poor peripheral perfusion Signs of cardiac failure or frank pulmonary edema, (ie Killip class 1) New onset[litfl.com] edema, whereas those of myocardial infarction include rupture of the papillary muscle, left ventricular free wall, and ventricular septum.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Preeclampsia

    CASE REPORT: A 23-year-old pregnant woman with mitral regurgitation complicated with preeclampsia and pulmonary edema presented 2 episodes of atrial tachycardia induced by[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Chest plain film showed acute pulmonary edema, bilateral pulmonary infiltration with interstitial patches, and cardiomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] edema are all severity criteria.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    The time course of ARDS may help in differentiating it from typical pulmonary edema.[radiopaedia.org] License: CC BY-SA 3.0 Introduction to ARDS ARDS is considered the most common cause of non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema.[lecturio.com] Calfee begins by explaining that acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is pulmonary edema, or fluid in the lungs, not due to heart failure.[ibiology.org]
