Accumulation of blood- hyperaemia- in an organ. It is an important symptom in febrile and other disorders. It may arise either from an extraordinary flow of blood by the arteries, or from a difficulty in the return of blood to the heart by the veins. More often, perhaps, it is owing to the latter cause, and is termed venous congestion, slasis or stagnation- being not unusually attended with symptoms of oppression and collapse. Hyperaemia.
