I reckon they are doing it just to be safe- since you have had Congestive heart failure- an echo test (echocardiogram) is just ultrasound on the heart which is probrably the safest and cheapest of the diagnostics they can do to you. Basically they want to image and model your heart. I don't think it has to do withs pecific indicators

I live alone so it was important to make sure that I had my house ready for me to come home - phone, meals, bed and bathing needs all ready. If you don't have a good cordless phone get one so that you can take it with you to any room. A good diet helps you recover in may ways: weight control, high protien and nutrient to promote healing and give you the energy you need to get out.
