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

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?

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
