CCP Podcast 103: Acute Right Heart Failure

 January 31

by Jonathan Downham

The right ventricle is often overlooked in critical care in favour of the attention to the left side of the heart. But acute right heart failure is important and today on the podcast we discuss its implications for critical care.
