In brief: Cardiac asthma
Cardiac asthma is really a different problem (usually due to heart failure) than allergic asthma, although it has the same symptoms--wheezing and shortness of breath.
In cardiac asthma the problem is that the heart is not pumping fluid well and some of it is backing up into the little air sacs in the lung. The primary treatment for this is a potent diuretic; bronchodilators may be used as well.
