In brief: Cardiac wheeze.

While it could be a symptom of other conditions, wheezing can be consistent with CHF, as the fluid thickens the interstitium and affects air flow through the smaller airways.
We call that a cardiac wheeze.

In brief: CHF

Wheezing is one of the many signs of CHF.
In the spectrum of wheezing, asthma and bronchitis are probably more frequent causes of wheezing than CHF.
