right-sided heart failure

Posted By w trout on January 23, 1999 at 12:28:53:







Dear Doctor,
  Besides left-sided heart failure what are the causes, symptoms, and
treatments for right sided heart failure.  Does an echo or ekg show
right sided heart failure.  What about arterial blood gases?
Thank you,
Will Trout
P.S.  The reason I ask is because my right ventricle measurement was larger
in a current echo that in one six months ago.  Although it was still in
the normal size range and the doctor indicated the echo had no abnormalities.
