Course description

John Ingram, CCP describes the complexities of the right sided circulation and how it differs from the left. 

John discuss potential causes of and measures for managing right heart failure. 

Exploring the Complexities of Right-Sided Cardiac Circulation

Right-sided cardiac circulation plays a crucial role in the cardiovascular system, managing the flow of blood through the heart to the lungs for oxygenation before it returns to the left side to be pumped to the body. This comprehensive lecture, presented by an experienced perfusionist with two decades in the field, dives deep into the intricacies of the right heart's function and its implications for clinical practice.

Detailed Examination of Right-Sided Circulation

The lecture begins with an overview of the right heart's anatomy and its pivotal role in pulmonary circulation. It provides insights into the journey of blood from the right atrium through the right ventricle to the pulmonary arteries, highlighting the unique aspects that differentiate it from left-sided circulation.

Pulmonary Circulation and Its Challenges

Focusing on the pulmonary circulation, the presentation explores how deoxygenated blood is transported to the lungs and returns saturated with oxygen. It discusses the challenges that arise within the pulmonary arteries and veins, such as pulmonary hypertension and its impact on right heart function.

Bronchial Circulation Explained

In addition to the pulmonary system, the lecture delves into the bronchial circulation, which nourishes the lung tissue itself. It explains how this separate system works in parallel with the pulmonary circulation to ensure the lungs receive adequate oxygen and nutrients.

Physiological Insights and Clinical Relevance

The expert discusses the physiological mechanisms that regulate blood flow and pressure within the right heart and how these can be affected by various clinical conditions. The lecture covers common pathologies associated with right-sided circulation, such as right heart failure and tricuspid valve disease, providing practical insights into their management and treatment.

Integrating Theory with Practice

Utilizing a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical examples, the presentation connects the dots between complex physiological processes and real-world clinical scenarios. It includes case studies that illustrate the critical role of right-sided circulation in patient outcomes, particularly in scenarios involving cardiac surgeries and interventions.


This in-depth review of right-sided cardiac circulation is essential for healthcare professionals involved in cardiac care, including cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and perfusionists. By enhancing understanding of these complex processes, the lecture aims to improve diagnostic accuracy and treatment efficacy in conditions affecting the right side of the heart.
