HEAD

  • H-Hepatomegaly
  • E-Edema (Bipedal)
  • A-Ascites
  • D-Distended Neck Veins

Description

Right sided heart failure will primarily manifest as central edema as the right side of the heart takes fluid from the body and moves it forward. If this portion of the pump is broken, fluid will become “backed up” behind the pump and therefore within the body.
