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?

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

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

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
