Pulmonary edema is a major health problem in the lung, it is a cardinal feature of congestive heart failure. Pulmonary edema defined as excessive extravascular water in the lungs, is a common and serious clinical problem. Pulmonary edema can be life-threatening, but effective therapy is available to rescue patients from the deleterious consequences of disturbed lung fluid balance, which usually can be identified and, in many instances, corrected. So we like to talk about this common disease because of its importance and its wide spread around the world. Other important causes of pulmonary edema are human exposure to some gases and toxins, the most important of which is chlorine gas, phosgene, mustard gas, heroin, paraquat and ammonia.
