An implantable jet pump cardiac replacement device and method for replacing or assisting the right heart. The jet pump device is an elongated tubular structure including an upstream driving nozzle from which a driving flow of arterial blood under pressure is ejected into a suction nozzle creating a zone of reduced pressure to cause venous blood to be sucked into and admixed with the driving flow for distribution to the pulmonary circulation system. The pump may be powered by blood pumped by the left heart or an artificial replacement for the left heart.
