COPD patients are numerically increasing regularly without any sign of arrest. The incidences are so mind-boggling that a time might come when all Indians will become victim of this condition. Considering it urgent to improve community health index (CHI), it was understood that every individual patient must be cured. Aim: To establish that COPD can be used as indicative of right ventricular failure and to establish that early detection, proper treatment and management can abort COPD their by minimize R.V.D and to explain “a cross sectional study on evaluation of right ventricular diastolic dysfunction in COPD patient using homoeopathic medicines in 6 potency in context to population and disease in population. Material and method: Here in this work 100 patients have been taken up for the study from the OPD of Sri ganganagar Homoeopathic Medical College Hospital and Research Institute. This was primarly cross sectional study then Interventinal study without controlled. Result- 30 medicines were prescribed all in 6 CH potency and usually given twice but sometimes 4 times a day. Medicine selected were all used in prefixed potency of 6CH potency considered that this disease bring the general condition of patient is done and less reactive medicine were given from two to four times a day depending on the severity or the recurrence of symptoms. Now we compare the calculated value of test statistics with the tabulated value of test statistics at α = 0.05 and df = n-1 i.e. 1.6604 I see that the calculated value of test 11.11 is greater than the tabulated value, so I reject null hypothesis i.e. homoeopathic medicines is ineffective in patients of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. Conclusion: This study shows that the patients suffering from COPD developed Right Ventricular Dysfunction at variable stages of illness. It can be concluded that right ventricular dysfunction is not directly related to the span of suffering but on individual responses towards the disease stimulation. Enlargement of right ventricular is not directly related to the age of the patients hence it can also be safely said that age doesn’t play a direct role on right ventricular enlargement in COPD patients. The patients irrespective of age, sex and period of suffering responded to homoeopathic treatment, expressed by clinically well being.
