Get cardiac consult: The Echo findings you report -there is fluid around the heart - moderate to large in amount . The change in the motion of the heart and reduced LV function indicates the heart is not pumping normally . The result definitely warrants a consultation with a Cardiologist and some background history . You will likely need further tests
