Pulmonary Edema

Alternate Names : Lung Edema, Fluid in the Lung

Pulmonary Edema | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

The history and physical exam usually make a healthcare provider suspicious. A chest x-ray usually shows the extra fluid in the lungs. Further tests may be needed to figure out the cause of the lung edema. These may include blood tests or further x-ray tests, such as a pulmonary ventilation scan and a pulmonary perfusion scan.
