CGH Pulmonary edema after atrial fib
My Mom has had atrial fibrillation for the past 15 years off and on. She has been on a few different meds to keep it under control. This past weekend she had an attack which was corrected in 1 hour at the hospital emergency. About 4-5 hours later she starting squirming in her hosp bed almost choking like and was rushed to a hospital in the city. They ct scanned her found nothing wrong, then put her on a ventilator to get rid of fluid on the lungs etc. she was taken off the ventilator the next day put on the regular ward of the hospital and had some meds changed including her metoprolol which was giving her asthma like symptoms. Doctor said she had congestive heart failure /pulmonary edema. What the heck happened here being it was so long after the initial attack 5 hours earlier? She had had some fluid/bacteria still in her lungs previous to this day from asthmatic bronchitis she had for 3 weeks.
