My doctor said that between 50 and 75 is acceptable. I am having heart problems and my doctor isn't addressing them because of test results only. He claims it is stress and am having shortness of breath, trying to pass out, sweating, tachycardia, etc. I can't get him to refer me to a cardiologist because he said it would be a waste of their time. He better be right! Judie

Recently been diagnosed with idiopathic cardiomyopathy with an ejection fraction of 15% Had another echo done yesterday (4 mos after initial diagnosis) and doc says no improvement. Wants to put in a biventricular pacemaker. Anyone have a similar situation?

Before my mitral valve replacement, I was told my ef was up to 65 from a low of 25. Now, 4 months after the operation, I'm told the ef is 70. Shouldn't there have been a greater improvement? What is a normal ef for a person without heart disease. I am a 60 year old female. Thank you for your response.

In 1999 my ef was 32. Last week it was 45. How good is this improvement and should it posssibly indicate reconsidering my meds?

I had a echocardiagram performed yesterday and although I havent had a full report from my doctor, I did see that my EF results were 37.9% - From all I have read, this seems cause for alarm or further testing?

Well the video fo the guidant section of this site (its in the bottom right in the grey bar) seems to suggest that when you get at or below a third (33%) your risk is considerable at 49 you are pretty neary 50% so I'm guessing tehy are right and saying you are fine- That's from a well-read amateur point of view
