    Aspiration is the inhaling of a foreign substance into the bronchi. Fluid in the lungs is edema (pulmonary edema or CHF)

    • A very quick and concise reply can be that CHF is a prominent cause of pulmonary edema. While Pulmonary Aspiration usually occurs when a person accidentally inhales foreign material, usually food, into the tracheobronchial tree, and finally lungs during positive pressure ventilation.

      Pulmonary edema is a condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs. This fluid collects in the lung alveoli making it difficult to breathe.
      In most cases, Cardiac problems is the primary cause of pulmonary edema. Other reasons may include pneumonia, kidney failure, exposure to poisonous toxins and some medications, and externous exercising or living at high elevations.

      CHF or (Congestive Heart Failure) occurs when the heart is unable to pump sufficient blood to meet the needs of the body. Left-sided heart failure will reduce cardiac output, and directly effect the pulmonary circulation. Decrease in Cardiac ejection fraction will leave abnormally high volume of blood in the left ventricle. End-diastolic ventricular pressure elevates. This increase in volume pressure, backs up to the left atrium and then to the pulmonary veins. Increased volume pressure in the pulmonary veins impairs the normal drainage of the alveoli and promotes the flow of fluid from the capillaries into the lungs causing pulmonary edema. This impairs gas exchange. Left-sided heart failure presents with respiratory symptoms: shortness of breath, orthopnea caused by the formation of pulmonary edema.
