What is right heart failure?

It occurs when the right side of the heart fails to adequately pump blood to the lungs. It's also known as pulmonary heart disease or cor pulmonale. Some common risk factors include left heart failure, persistent high blood pressure, conditions that affect the arteries of the heart, diabetes, certain lung conditions, cocaine and alcohol abuse.
