In brief: Yes

Pulmonary edema caused by congestive heart failure gets better quicker with cpap.
In other cases it is used to minimize the need for life support with a breathing tube.

In brief: !

If you have pulmonary edema, you have a potentially life threatening condition that needs complete evaluation and treatment.
Don't try this at home on your own!
