Cardiogenic Pulmonary Edema

Em Didactics - August 1, 2016 - By Nikhil N. Tambe 
"SUMMARY
  • Treatment of pulmonary edema should be focused on ‘fluid redistribution’ and not ‘fluid removal’. 
  • First line: Nitroglycerin and NIV (start ASAP)
  • Second line: ACE-I (in addition or instead of NTG)
  • Third line: Diuretic like furosemide 
  • Morphine has NO ROLE in modern management of cardiogenic pulmonary edema"
