Would pneumoconiosis hasten death by pulmonary edema?

Additive. Pneumoconiosis, or restrictive lung disease caused by environmental exposure to things like coal dust or asbestos causes serious progressive lung dysfunction. Pulmonary edema is fluid buildup in the lungs, usually from cardiac dysfunction. If a person has both, it would be expected that their outcome would be worse than if they had either disease alone.
Not exactly sure. Of your question. Pneumoconeosis itself can lead to death but if you have pulmonary edema on top of tha it would be very bad for the lungs. If severe enough could hasten death. Not sure if that was your question , sorry.
