Tree number(s): A12.207.270.300
RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D015633
Scope note: Water content outside of the lung vasculature. About 80% of a normal lung is made up of water, including intracellular, interstitial, and blood water. Failure to maintain the normal homeostatic fluid exchange between the vascular space and the interstitium of the lungs can result in PULMONARY EDEMA and flooding of the alveolar space.
