Pulmonary Vascular Congestion
Usually from CHF: Vascular congestion or pulmonary edema is usually the result of a cardiac problem call congestive heart failure (chf). The left side of the heart can not keep up with the right, so blood stagnates in the lungs. This causes shortness of breath, inability to lie flat, and sometimes white frothy sputum. ...Read more
I have pulmonary vascular congestion along with an enlarged heart. Is this something dangerous as one doc said it was nothing?
Pulmonary congestion and cardiomegaly (if you truly have them) may represent signs of early heart failure but you do not say if you have shortness of breath or any other symptoms.
Nothing wrong to get a second opinion from a cardiologist that you trust and follow his lead.
Do not be afraid of asking questions!
you should be allright. ...Read more

It is ok for any baby over six months to have a little water. You may have a hard time getting your child to drink iced water, though since they do not usually like to drink very cold liquids. The only things that have been shown to help an infant with cough and congestion are saline drops and nasal suctioning with a bulb suction and placing a humidifier in the room while he sleeps. No cough/cold medications are safe for this age.
If your child develops a fever, starts refusing to eat or drink, acts very sick or starts to have difficulty breathing, call his doctor right away. Good luck! ...Read more
Anytime I fall asleep laying on my back, I wake up with fluid/congestion in my lungs. What could be the cause? I'm 29, non-smoker, & normal weight.
Lying supine: This syndrome may actually be due to postnasal dripping of mucus or actual gastroesophageal reflux as you lie in a supine position during sleep. If you have normal breathing during exertion or exercise, it is quite unlikely that you have any disorder of the heart or lungs. Try sleeping with your head and chest in more of an upright position-that is, above your abdomen which helps reflux. ...Read more

Does "Stable findings of mild cardiomegaly & vascular congestion" mean mild CHF? If not, what does it mean? Could you explain "stable findings"?

Not likely: I'm not sure what is meant by this report but clearly you have a physician who ordered the study. You should ask that person for an interpretation.
