In brief: Watch out!
Pulmonary edema is life threatening.
Unless the patient gets dehydrated or with significant fluid restriction it is dangerouse. It is caused by many things like congestive heart failure, fluid overload and disorders that elevate the pulmonary pressure. It requires attention soon. If patient takes diuretics it may resolve. Find the cause and treat.
