In brief: In hospital
Pulmonary edema it is a serious medical condition.
In pregnancy requires immediate intervention in the hospital. Depending the cause, the treatment differs but most of the time diuretics are used to get rid of the excess fluids in lungs. Yet care should be taken not do drain too much fluid and affect the baby. This is the reason is treated only in hospital under supervision.
