In brief: Findings

One must remeber that the most common cause of right heart failure is left heart failure and thuswhat is often referred to as left heart failure can represent biventricular failure.
Isolated left heart failure usually manifests in pulmonary edema and shortness of breath. Right heart failure can manifest as passive liver congestion, periphera edema, elevated venous jugluar pressures, etc.
