Right-sided heart failure with COPD
Severe COPD can lead to cardiac failure in the ventricle, or lower right chamber, of your heart. COPD and heart failure, also known as cor pulmonale, is a disorder that affects people. Fluid builds up in your body as a result of right-sided heart failure, particularly in your legs and belly. When the lungs are badly injured by living with COPD, the pressure in the lungs' arteries rises to dangerously high levels, producing a back-up of pressure on the heart's right side as it pumps blood to the lungs. Cor pulmonale, a kind of right heart failure caused by lung disease, develops as a result of this.Take good care of your lungs with Salt Therapy for COPD at SaltWorld.
