PMID:  2914509     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe a patient who developed acute pulmonary edema while taking oral ritodrine for the treatment of premature labor and recovered after its discontinuation. The mechanism of development of pulmonary edema associated with beta-sympathomimetic agents is still not fully understood. Patients taking oral ritodrine should be observed for cardiopulmonary signs and symptoms.
