Edema overview

Edema is a condition where excess fluid accumulation is observed in the limbs bilaterally, appearing as as puffiness or swelling. This condition can be temporary, depending on the cause of the condition. There are various etiological factors: long-standing, low protein levels, pregnancy, chronic kidney disease (CKD), congestive heart failure (CHF), liver cirrhosis, venous insufficiency, and lung conditions like emphysema. Physical examination is the primary diagnostic method, where the swollen part is pressed by the thumb to see an indentation. Other tests include urine tests, chest X-ray, and ECG, based on the patient’s medical history of causal conditions. Fluid restriction is the primary treatment step, followed by supportive care as needed. A low-salt diet is a non-pharmacological intervention for patients with edema.
