In brief: Oxygen is important

In general, you can't cure right heart failure since the cause is usually not treatable.
It is usually related to lung disease, left sided heart disease, or pulmonary hypertension. Adherence to oxygen intake is important however. There are some meds than can be helpful based on the exact cause and you can discuss specific options with your doctor regarding this.
