your description is highly inadequate to form a diagnosis. Please furnish a little more details like 1. Why he got admitted 2. Any previous medical problems 3. is he in ICU? 4. ECHO report %. Any positive report like Pro calcitonin, Pro BNP

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
Going by your History, your brother has Cardiomegaly. May be he is having Congestive Cardiac Failure, he needs immediate medical intervention may be a ICU admission. Don't wait for anything, just rush him to the hospital.
