What Is Congestive Heart Failure?

1 Answer

The most common cause of pulmonary edema is congestive heart failure (CHF). Heart failure is when the heart can no longer pump blood properly throughout the body. This creates a back-up of pressure in the small blood vessels of the lungs, which causes the vessels to leak fluid. Keyword: congestive heart failure pulmonary edema.
