Abstract

Pulmonary edema is a secondary disease state in the lung in which fluid moves from the cardiovascular space into the interstitium and alveoli of the lungs. Its importance as a potentially fatal process was first recognized by Laennec,1 who stated, “Oedema of the lungs is the infiltration of serum into the substance of this organ, in which degree as notably to diminish its permeability to the air in respiration.”
