To evaluate radiographic criteria recently proposed for determining causes of pulmonary edema, the authors studied 45 patients with severe pulmonary edema. Hydrostatic and increased permeability edemas were distinguished by means of the ratio of pulmonary edema fluid protein to plasma protein concentration and clinical and hemodynamic data. Chest radiographs were classified as showing hydrostatic, increased permeability, or mixed edema by three independent readers without knowledge of the… CONTINUE READING
