Pulmonary Edema and Hypoxic Respiratory Failure.
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this chapter is to outline the causes, physiology, pathophysiology, and management strategies for hydrostatic and permeability pulmonary edema and hypoxic respiratory failure. DATA SOURCE: MEDLINE and PubMed. CONCLUSION: The pulmonary parenchyma and vasculature are at high risk in conditions where injury occurs to the lung and or heart. A targeted approach that uses strategies that optimize the particular pathophysiology of the parenchyma and vasculature is required.
