Pulmonary Edema and the Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome

  • Mark D. Siegel

Abstract

Pulmonary edema contributes to several disorders that cause acute respiratory failure. Edema may be the main pathological feature, as in congestive heart failure (CHF), or contribute to a more complex process, such as the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
