Tachycardia means a raised heart rate - usually above 90 bpm (beats per minute)

Anuria means no urine output and is usually a consequence of renal (kidney) failure.

Pulmonary Oedema (without an O is the American spelling) is the accumulation of fluid within the airspaces (alveoli) of the lungs.

Dyspnoea (again without an O is the American spelling) means 'difficulty breathing'.

Hope this helps
