Altho the heart and lung are within the same part of our body cavity these are two totally seperate issues.  Respiratory failure is simply when the mix of oxygen and carbon dioxide in our lungs are out of whack and the balance of the two are off and Heart Failure is when the heart cannot pump enough blood thru out our bodies.
