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.
In pulmonary edema, the alveoli become filled with fluid
Increased surface tension leads to collapsed alveoli or difficulty opening the alveoli
The most common cause of cardiac pulmonary edema is left sided heart failure, commonly known as Congestive Heart Failure(CHF)
Congestive heart failure- Right sided heart failure
Normal ejection fraction is____, but can fall as low as 20% in severe cases
Cor-Pulmonale describes right sided heart failure and is caused by chronic pulmonary disease
