What is bilateral pulmonary edema?

What is bilateral pulmonary edema?

Meaning....: This means that there is fluid in both lungs. Congestive heart failure can lead to a fluid build up in both lungs but there are many other etiologies depending on the age of the patient as well as medical history. Your doctor will have more clinical information to make a more precise diagnosis as well as treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Edema (Definition)

Fluid in the tissues, either caused by something local to the swollen area like an injury or inflammation, or from the body's retention of water. Gravity brings the fluid to the feet & legs in that case. As a general rule, if one foot is swollen, something is wrong with the foot. If both feet are swollen, it's not the feet, but water ...Read more

What is neurogenic pulmonary edema ?

What is neurogenic pulmonary edema ?

From brain injury: This is a kind of noncardiac pulmonary edema. Its seen with a variety of acute brain injuries like head injury and large strokes especially hemorrhages. The edema is related to leaky capillaries. The exact mechanism is unknown but one theory is the brain injury causes a sudden release of stress hormones ( like adrenaline) that injures the capillaries and allows them to leak fluid into the lung. ...Read more

What does noncardiac pulmonary edema do?

What does noncardiac pulmonary edema do?

Difficulty breathing: In non cardiogenic pulmonary edema the lungs are filled with fluid and become stiff. This means the work of breathing is increased. In addition the alveoli or tiny air sacs are filled with fluid such that gas exchange can not occur, in particular in becomes hard to get oxygen into the blood. All of this combines to produce impaired lung function and even respiratory failure. ...Read more

More info: At this moment not enough info. Pulm edema is a serious problem. Most commonly from heart failure. But, can happen from a severe chronic lung disease, exacerbated. From volume overload in renal failure, liver failure/cirrhosis, severe acute lung injury from trauma, pneumonia, cancer, etc. Are you out of the hospital? ...Read more

Waht causes pulmonary edema?

Waht causes  pulmonary edema?

Many things: Anything that allows fluid to leak from the blood or lymphatics into the lung tissue and air spaces. Infection, heart failure, sever protein malnutrition, trauma, kidney failure, etc can all do it. Overwhelming the hydrostic equilibrium or decreasing the oncotic pressure all allow fluid to move into the lung. ...Read more

How could pulmonary hypertension in mitral stenosis prevent pulmonary edema?

Less flow to lungs: If the pressure in the pulmonary artery is high enough, the right ventricle's ability to pump bood to the lungs is diminished. Less blood flow to the lungs means that there is less fluid to leak out into the air spaces ( alveoli). ...Read more

How to differentiate arterial and venous infarct in MRI brain? Without mr angio?

How to differentiate arterial and venous infarct in MRI brain? Without mr angio?

Several factors: One of the factors is the distribution of the infarct. The arteries of the brain have a very well-defined territory that they supply and venous infarcts may not be isolated to one of those territories. Also, there may be direct or indirect evidence on a noncontrast ct or MRI that suggest occlusion of one of the major venous structures. Clinical history is also considered. ...Read more

Is pulmonary edema a circulation problem?

Sort of: Pulmonary edema can be related to heart failure. If the heart fails as a pump, this elevates the blood pressure in the pulmonary circulation, because the fluid gets "backed up", the elevated pressure causes the capillaries to leak fluid into the air spaces. In non cardiac edema, there is an inflammatory injury to the capillaries, from a toxin or infection etc.. This causes the capillaries to leak. ...Read more

Swelling (Definition)

Swelling is the enlargement of organs, skin, or other body parts. It is caused by a buildup of fluid in the tissues. The extra fluid can lead to a rapid increase in weight over a short period of time (days to weeks). Swelling can occur all over the body (generalized) or only in one part ...Read more
