    I've only ever heard it called draining fluid from the lungs, but not a technical term. I'm sure you can find it with just that. A needle is inserted into the chest cavity (generally the cat is lightly anesthetized) and the fluid is withdrawn. The risk is due to the anesthesia, mostly. The vet should be willing to explain the risks, the potential causes of the fluid buildup, and what if any other treatment options you might have.

    First, did the vet say it was in her LUNGS or in her CHEST CAVITY? They are two different things. The fluid in a chest cavity can be removed via syringe, however it's only a short term fix.
