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.

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?

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.

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?

Probably: 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.

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?

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

Is nuclear stress testing or echo more accurate for calculating ejection fraction? Nuclear says 67 percent echo says 48.

Is nuclear stress testing or echo more accurate for calculating ejection fraction? Nuclear says 67 percent echo says 48.

EF: Ejection fraction can vary depending on the type of test done (echo vs. Cath vs. Gated nuclear stress). Nuclear MUGA scan is most accurate since is depends on counts rather than the geometry of the ventricle.

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?

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?

Chest pain: Chest pain in heart failure has to be evaluated for coronary artery disease. Make sure you don't have significant valvular heart disease, such as aortic stenosis etc. It is important you should be evaluated by a cardiologist. Good luck.

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

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.

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.

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.

Ejection fraction is what?

% bile ejected by GB: Normal gallbladders have an ejection fraction of over 50%. Intermediate range is 35-50%. Less than 35% is considered abnormal. Key finding in gallbladder dyskinesia is the association of symptoms with the administration of cck during the hida scan.

Is 65% ejection fraction good?

Is 65% ejection fraction good?

Yes: Over 60% is normal. But ejection fraction is just one part of the heart measurements on an echo. There are many other things to consider. Your doctor can go over that with you.

Does exercise improve ejection fraction?

Does exercise improve ejection fraction?

ABSOLUTELY YES!: But you have to be a little careful about the exercise intensities... http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/pmc3221192/.

What does an ejection fraction (ef) of 40% mean?

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.

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.

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.

What is the definition or description of: ejection fraction?

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 %.
