A 48-year-old member asked:

Affected ventricle: Simplistically, the difference between right heart failure and left heart failure is which pumping chamber is failing, the right ventricle pumping to the lungs, or the left ventricle pumping to the body. Beyond that, the likely causes are different and the treatment options are different.
