About the Case Presentation

An abnormal build-up of extravascular fluid in the lung parenchyma is known as pulmonary edema. Reduced gas exchange occurs at the alveolar level as a result of this process, which might eventually result in respiratory failure. Its etiology might be non-cardiogenic, caused by damage to the lung parenchyma, or cardiogenic, caused by an incapacity to remove enough blood from the pulmonary circulation. Understanding the underlying illness process is essential to guiding the care of this significant pathologic characteristic, which is present in many disease processes. Rales on lung auscultation, increasing hypoxia, and progressive worsening dyspnea are among the clinical characteristics.
