    My wife works as a unit clerk in a hospital, and she had to take a medical terminology course last year. From her textbook on that, it says that edema is the medical term for swelling, which is caused by an excessive amount of fluid. And pulmonary refers to the lungs, so obviously that's where your Dad's edema is located.

    As for what causes it, I don't know. Sorry, pretty vague, but that's what I've got for information.

    Hope it turns out OK for your Dad.

    Wow, my prayers as well man. My dad just is just now really recovering from a pretty massive brain surgery, I know where your at.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesnt the definition of this equate to pnuemonia? I can see where the congenial heart failure could amplify it, with the lack of circulation and all. But if so, it seems that it is pretty dog gone treatable nowadays with antibiotics.

    Anyways, all the best bro.

    pnuemonia is a virus or bacterial infection of the lungs, they can fill with fluid but it is different that pulmonary edema.

    PE is fluid accumulation in the lungs caused by back pressure in the lung veins. It is a compliacation of a heart attack, cardiac dysfunction, mitral or aortic valve disease. congestive heart failure can cause PE.
