Pulmonary Edema and CHF Quiz
In Pulmonary Edema fluid that accumulates in the tracheobronchial tree is turned into a frothy white(sometimes blood tinged, pink) sputum as a result of air moving in and out of the lungs.
Cor-Pulmonale describes right sided heart failure and is caused by chronic pulmonary disease
Primary right sided heart failure rarely leads to left heart failure, but left heart failure often leads to right heart failure
in CHF over time it decreases the compliance of the ventricle and reduces the pumping ability of the heart even further.
Two major categories of Pulmonary Edema
A. Cardiogenic and Noncardiogenic
B. Noncardiogenic and Vascular
C. Vascular and Cardiogenic
D. Hypercardio and Vascular
Increased surface tension leads to collapsed alveoli or difficulty opening the alveoli
Congestive heart failure- Right sided heart failure
In pulmonary edema, the alveoli become filled with fluid
Excessive movement of fluid from the pulmonary vascular system to the extravascular system and air spaces in the lungs
A. Pulmonary Edema
interstitial edema occurs when fluid leaks out of the pulmonary capillaries and into the interstitium.
Normal ejection fraction is____, but can fall as low as 20% in severe cases
The most common cause of cardiac pulmonary edema is left sided heart failure, commonly known as Congestive Heart Failure(CHF)
Pulomnary Edema includes ? EXCEPT
A. FWS(frothy white secretions)
B. IE( interstitial edema)
C. RBC( red blood cells)
D. Inset ( Atelectasis)
E. FNG( Fungi)
Pulmonary Edema is a _____ disorder
