A patient with history of myocardial ischemia was operated for cholecystectomy. In postoperative period he developed severe respiratory distress. Pulmonary artery catheterization was done which shows value of 28 mmHg. The likely diagnosis is:
|B||Pneumothorax due to rupture of pleura during surgery|
Pulmonary capillary wedge pressure more than 25 mmHg indicates pulmonary edema i.e., cardiac asthma.
