What is congestive heart failure?

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.
