Resting HR 120-160 found in notes I also have Left ventricular ejection fraction 52% been passing out a lot should I be worried/is this the cause?

Unfortunately yes: You could be having a dangerous heart rhythm, leading to the passing out. The ejection fraction of 52% is still within the normal range; however, you are tachycardic at baseline, and the fast heart rate may overestimate your true ejection fraction as well as lead to heart damage. If you pass out again, I recommend calling 911, otherwise, see cardiologist ASAP. ...Read more

35-40% cardiac ejection fraction during pregnancy. 11weeks. How serious is this? What shld I do? Do I need to restrict activities, etc?

35-40% cardiac ejection fraction during pregnancy. 11weeks. How serious is this? What shld I do? Do I need to restrict activities, etc?

Important Info: It is important to know if there is history of a depressed EF. One might think that this could be peripartum cardiomyopathy but this usually presents in the final weeks of pregnancy or the week after that.
This does not mean that could not happen in the first trimester but it would be unusual.
It would be important to rule out any type of congenital disorder in the echocardiogram. ...Read more

SILENT MI: Even with well controlled diabetes, silent MI are possible. A thallium Scan and CARDIAC CATH potentially needed if there is good functional status, to define the anatomy. If the functional status is poor then medical management is indicated. ...Read more

I'm a 35 yr old female. My recent echo showed a ejection fraction of 44%. Dr told me to limit fluids. Why limit fluids and what does this mean?

I'm a 35 yr old female. My recent echo showed a ejection fraction of 44%. Dr told me to limit fluids. Why limit fluids and what does this mean?

Why?: You need to know from your doctor why your ejection is low. To answer your question drinking too much water could put extra volume or pressure on a heart that pumping below normal or the fear that extra water might accumulate around the heart and make it pump even lower. Still you need to know why??? ...Read more

I had a hida scan done result ejection fraction of 35% I am diabetic pain is worse since test and blood sugars are high is this normal?

Borderline result: 35% gb ejection fraction in most labs is borderline normal. Your physician has to consider gb ejection fraction along with symptoms of biliary colic for proper therapy. Ingestion of food prior to study does affect result. Being diabetic I do not know how many hours fasting prior to test. Usually 6-8 hours. ...Read more

Pain in right upper quadrant. Went for HIDA SCAN shows gb ejection fraction of 32 percent being 35% is norm should I have surgery vs natural care?

You are 39 yrs old: Please try dietary restrictions, as well as lower fat and healthier lifestyle. If despite these efforts your pain continues, there are medications that might help. Surgery should be your last recourse, unless it gets infected, in which case you might need surgery sooner rather than later. Good health to you ...Read more

How to improve resting heart ejection fraction? My cardioloist indicated it was settld at 35-40%, improves to 45-50% under stress.

Standard Rx: You want to discuss your meds with your doc:

ace/arb
beta blockade
diuretic
spironolactone 25
digoxin probably not very useful
avoid sodium salt and switch to potassium salt, usually. ...Read more

My echocardiogram show moderately reduced left ventricular systolic function with and estimated ejection fraction approximately 30-35 Explain please?

General definitions: Left ventricular systolic function is a measure of how well the lower left pumping section of the heart squeezes to send blood to the body. Ejection fraction (EF) is the % of blood that is pumped out with each heartbeat. A normal EF at rest usually ranges between 55& 70%. If the heart muscle has been damaged the ejection fraction may be lower. You should discuss results further with your doctor. ...Read more

Can ejection fraction of 35% after heart attack... In general be improved by cardiac excersize, or meds only. Is ef based only on amt of damage?

Can ejection fraction of 35% after heart attack... In general be improved by cardiac excersize, or meds only. Is ef based only on amt of damage?

Exercise, time: In general, there will be some improvement in ef over the 6-8 week following a heart attack. This is due to some shrinkage of the scar, and compensation by the undamaged part of the heart. Recovery will be improved with regular aerobic exercise, such as in a cardiac rehab program. Medications will definitely also help the process, and are a recommended part of the treatment. ...Read more

Dad 92, just went on hospice with CHF and third stage renal failure, ejection fraction of 35-40what is prognosis?

Hard to say: It sounds like your father is dealing with a lot of serious illnesses, and as people get older, everything can get more complicated. To qualify for hospice, typically death is expected within 6 months, and most families find hospice a very rewarding and dignified way to care for family members at the end of life. ...Read more

CABG Does Not Repair: CABG does not repair the heart, only bypasses portions of epicardial arteries, may? Limitations of blood supply due to luminal (phenobarbital) artery ds & likely induces additional heart muscle damage that further decreases pump efficiency. Heart muscle which has died does not grow back, is replaced with scar tissue. Best treat factors driving artery ds & add acei + Coreg + exercise in effort to? Heart strength. ...Read more

How can we increase ejection fraction from 20 %?

Cardiac optimization: By taking beta blockers to have an optimum heart rate of close to 60 BPM, taking Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitor to protect from remodeling, taking aspirin to protect from further risk of MI, taking Statin to decrease inflammatory and control lipids, undergo cardiac rehabilitation; sometime biventricular cardiac stimulator can help, also EP consultant may consider ablation if many PVCs. ...Read more

What is a normal ejection fraction in a 37 year old woman?

Ejection fraction: In 37 yf the ejection fraction should be normal between 55-70%. Provided you do not have any heart problem. To be precise exact, doctor has to know wt, cardiac out put, heart rate, stroke volume& lvedv. Women have slightly high stroke volume. Not very much gender difference for ef%. Age certainly plays role. Elderly people have lessef%. Ef also depends on modality of test. Good luck. ...Read more
