Heart: With this diagnosis you need to be under the supervision of a cardiologist and follow his advice. ...Read more
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 moreSee 8 more doctor answers
Stress Echo-What does decreased left ventricular volume and hyperdynamic left ventricular systolic function mean?
Summary of my resent echogram;
1-Low normal left ventricular function. Ejection fraction is est.52%
2-Mild left atrial enlargement.
3-Mild to moderate aortic valve regurgition.
4-Moderate aortic valve stenosis.
5-Mild tricuspid valve regurgitation.
Need cardiologist!: There are a number of concerning findings on your echocardiogram. The left ventricular function (how strong your pump is) is just a little low; I'm not that concerned about that. The valves, especially aortic, are the biggest problem: to have both aortic regurgitation (back flow across the valve) and narrowing (stenosis) is very concerning. Follow up soon with your cardiologist. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Echo1.Old myocardial infraction (inferior+posterior+antero septal+apical)
2.Severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction. What medicine you prefer?
A few: Assuming no medication side effects and normal vital signs in addition to no comorbidities that may play into this- daily aspirin, a beta blocker, statin and often an ace inhibitor. Each patient may need different things based on what else is going on. Have a conversation with your doc about it ...Read more
Left ventricular ejection fraction is 60% and right ventricular ejection fraction is 57%. Are these normal for a 20 year old male?
Yes that's normal: Ejection fractions between 50 and 75% are normal. Hopefully, the physician who performed your exam or your primary doctor would be able to explain any abnormalities or concerns from your exam. But based on the numbers you quoted above, the ejection fraction is normal. ...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
What does "mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy, septum is akinetic & left ventricle is severely hypokinetic. " mean?
Echocardio results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Is this normal?
No.: This may be the result of longstanding hypertension. The doc who ordered your test should know more about how to interpret your results. ...Read more

I have congestive heart failure with a 30% ejection fraction, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy , and left bundle branch block is it safe for me to fly?
Depends: It depends on your overall health. Do you have an icd, are you on daily oxygen, daily medications, can you sit for exended lengths of time, how long is the flight? Commercial airlines have cabin pressures set to about 7000ft. So if you can tolerate that altitude (denver is about 5600ft), air travel may be ok. Discuss with your doctor. Tsa will need to know if you have an icd. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Echocardiogram: evidence of left ventricular diastolic relaxation abnormality. Mildly decreased systolic function. Wall motion abnormalities. Means?
Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global.Is my heart ok?
More info needed: I am assuming echo is showing pericardial effusion and global? Or maybe global hypohypokinesia? Any wall motion abnormalities? Ejection fraction? Do u have any symptoms? At rest or with activities? Any other risk factors? Smoker, overweight, dm, htn, high chol, family history heart attacks, sedentary life etc. Any prior heart attacks? Stress test done.
