Ejection Fraction 50 Percent
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
34 yr old female. Healthy weight...Recent echo showed ejection fraction of 50 percent...Recent blood work cardio CRP 9.8, sed rate 38, CRP 15.1, next?
What are your: Symptoms? Ef is low normal but inflammatory markers are elevated. ..Recommend you discuss with ordering physician. ...Read more
34 yr old with ejection fraction from echo at 50 percent....Is this a concern given my age and that I'm healthy and young?
Why would this have been tested if you are young and healthy? Something prompted these tests.
They should be followed up to investigate the cause. Perhaps the test itself should be repeated to see if the reporting was valid to start with. ...Read more
I had an ejection fraction of 25-30 percent before an ablation in january and it has only improved from 30-35 percent. Will it improve?
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
Is nuclear stress testing or echo more accurate for calculating ejection fraction? Nuclear says 67 percent echo says 48.
My husband is recently on hospice far right side heart failure. He has an ejection fraction of 54 percent now. But he is still having chest pain?
Congestive heart failure I was diagnosed with CHF and a 80 percent block of the right coronary artery my ejection fraction is up to 55-60 from 25-30 I still get tired and short of breath not getting answers from my doctor could that be from the block any
That: That is great news that your ejection fraction (ef) has improved that much, as that is directly correlated with your overall long term prognosis. You clearly are still symptomatic though. If you find that your shortness of breath continues, it is certainly possible that the stenosis in your right coronary artery is the culprit, although without knowing more information it is hard to say definitively. My best advice to you is to find a physician that will answer your questions and communicate with you so that you may understand your care. Heart disease is complex and involves the interplay of many factors, and an excellent relationship with your cardiologist can be the most important one. ...Read more
Why is my ejection fraction 48%? I'm 25 and the echo shows no other problems but that. It was 50-55% last time I had it checked.
See cardiology: More data would be needed. Strongly encourage you to see and work with your cardiologists to better understand why a young man such as yourself would have a decrease in their ejection fraction. ...Read more
Hida scan results ejection fraction rates 30% at 30minutes 46% at 45 minutes and 50% at 60 minutes. I am very symptomatic with eating, recorecommendat?
Depends on how the:
Gallbladder ejection fraction was performed. If the gallbladder contraction drug (cck or sincalide) was administered at a dose of 0.02 micrograms/kilogram over 1 hour, then a normal gallbladder ejection fraction would be greater than or equal to 38% at one hour.
Unfortunately, there is variability in the % depending on exactly how it is performed. Check with your doctor for what normal is. ...Read more
Dysfunction: A normal ef is 50-55% or greater. An ef of 40% indicates that there is a mild degree of cardiac dysfunction. Medical therapy is very effective depending on the cause. Speak with your cardiologist. ...Read more
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
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
Measure of hearts ef:
It is a measurement of hearts efficiency. That is the proportion of blood that is pumped from the left ventricle with each heart beat
normal ejection fraction is 55 to 70 %. ...Read more
Yes: Anything over 55% is considered normal. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/ejection-fraction/an00360 & http://my. Clevelandclinic. Org/heart/disorders/heartfailure/ejectionfraction. Aspx. ...Read more
Yes: Normal ejection fraction is over 50%. It will vary with the preload, rythm and state of contractility. ...Read more

It may be possible: To improve your EF, but you need to talk to your cardiologist about what is possible in your particular clinical situation. ...Read more
Al least 50%: It should be at least 50%. More important, however, is if the injection of cck at the time of the study replicates your pain. If so, cholecystectomy may be in order. ...Read more
Is an ejection fraction of 50-55% on 2D echo dangerous in a young person? The official report would state it is the lower limit of normal.
Likely not: It sounds like you're being evaluated for a possible heart condition. I would ask my primary care provider or cardiologist, whoever ordered the echo, why the EF is on the lower end. There are a number of reasons that are completely normal. It is always good to check and make sure if there are some modifiable things that can improve your cardiac function. ...Read more
What is the normal ejection fraction level in cardiology. And what is the most healthy one? Also my echo in 2011 was 50% 2012 was 55% 2014 is 60%.
Normal: In general, ejection fraction more than 50% is considered normal. However, if the ejection fraction is calculated should be more than 52% in males and more than 54% in females. ...Read more
Ejection fraction on Echocardiogram 45-50% but onnk CMRI 67%. Which is most accurate? Why discrepancy?
Accuracy dependent: The acuracy of an echo dependent on operator & time alloted&the equip. Having said that, NL EF of echo is >55%. So if looks NL, will be called 55%. Thus, # not written in stone, consensus opinion. No Measurement is perfect because of technical reasons. Best measure `considered' Nuclear. Does require radioactive nuclide injected, NL if EF >50%. Not perfect measure either. Experienced reader helpful ...Read more
HIDA scan EF>35%: Most radiologists state a normal gallbladder ejection fraction (ef) on a hida scan as 35% or above. A low ejection fraction can be due to gallbladder dyskinesia, chronic cholecystitis (infection), and rarely cancer. A good answer for 'hida scan results' =http://www. Mayoclinic.
