In brief: Medication

Usually therapy is with medications li similar to left heart failure.
Diuretics, beta blockers, ace inhibitors. If a specific cause can be identified that should be treated as well. That could coronary heart disease affecting the right ventricle or a lung process that may be causing the right ventricle to work eccessively.

In brief: Medication

The best way is to come with a correct diagnosis.
The majority of right heart failure can be treated by medication for which you should consult cardiologists who specialize in heart failure. Severe form of right heart failure may required a heart replacement therapy such as heart transplant or ventricular assist device.
