Can COPD cause heart failure?

March 16, 2022
COPD and heart failure are interrelated. Severe COPD can cause cardiac failure in your heart's ventricle or lower right chamber. Right-sided heart failure, also known as cor pulmonale, is a disorder that affects people.
COPD and oxygen levels play a major role in healthy heart functioning. Worse things happen when low oxygen levels caused by COPD produce pulmonary hypertension or a rise in blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs. As the heart attempts to pump blood through the lungs, this rise in pressure puts an undue strain on the right ventricle.Stay fresh with Salt Therapy for COPD at Saltworld.
