Abstract: Pulmonary oedema is a common condition in elderly people but very uncommon in young people.

Several factors have been identified (eg, fluid overload, systemic inflammatory response to surgery, myocardial ischemia, blood product transfusion), all of which contribute to increased fluid transudation.
