    Both cerebral oedema and pulmonary oedema should be seen as a result of death. Cerebral oedema is excess accumulation of fluid in the intracellular or extracellular spaces of the brain. Cerebral oedema can result from brain trauma, such as hit in the head, or from non-traumatic causes such as stroke, cancer, or brain inflammation due to meningitis or encephalitis or poisoning of any toxic chemical. Even high altitude can cause cerebral oedema. Pulmonary oedema is an abnormal build-up of fluid in the lungs. Basically any reason that affects the ability of the heart to pump the blood in sufficient rate can result in pulmonary oedema. Pulmonary oedema may thus be caused by kidney failure, lung damage, poisoning by many chemicals including drugs, injuries after traffic accidents, high altitude sickness, severe infection etc. to name few reasons. So both cerebral oedema and pulmonary oedema can be caused by very many different trauma and sicknesses and do not tell anything about the cause of death. They should be seen as the result of trauma and death, not its cause. More importantly, drug overdose is only one of the many reasons leading to these medical conditions.
