Draining fluid from the heart usually refers to the draining of a "Pericardial Effusion"..... a fluid buildup around the heart in the Pericardial
Draining fluid from the lungs usually refers to the draining of a "Pulmonary Effusion"..... a fluid buildup around the lungs in the Pulmonary
Both conditions could be caused by an injury, disease, infection, health problems, etc.
When fluid builds up in the sacs around the heart or lungs it can cause difficulty breathing, fatigue, palpitations among other symptoms.
