Most probably his: Heart attack was a large one causing an ischemic cardiomiopathy with low ejection fraction. Cardiac rehabilitation program a must. Close cardiology fallow up too. Treatment individualized for each patient. Future improvement on cardiac function will depend on actual amount of irreversible myocardial damage. There many options to improve cardiac functioning. Talk to his cardiologist.
