DO YOU KNOW  what the Ejection Fraction (EF) is? 
Do you know  your score?

Ejection fraction, or EF, is the proportion, fraction, or percentage of blood pumped out of your heart with each beat. A normal heart pumps out a little more than half the heart's volume of blood with each beat — a normal EF is 55 percent or higher. An echocardiogram, which creates a moving picture of your heart using harmless soundwaves, or a nuclear medicine test that shows how well your heart is pumping can be used to measure your EF.

Understanding Ejection Fraction
How is the Ejection fraction score calculated?

During each heartbeat, the heart contracts and relaxes. When your heart contracts, it pushes blood out of the two pumping chambers (ventricles). When your heart relaxes, the ventricles refill with blood. The term “ejection fraction” refers to the percentage of blood that’s pumped out of a filled ventricle with each heartbeat. This percentage helps your healthcare provider determine if you have heart failure or other kinds of heart disease.

Questions to ask your doctor or healthcare provider:

   §  Should I be concerned with my EF  number?
   §  Do I need to have my EF rechecked?
 (And when?)
§  Is there anything I should do 
about my EF?
  §  What else can I do to monitor my heart health?
§  Do I need additional tests or
§  Do I need to see another doctor who specializes in heart rhythm?
§  When should my EF be checked next?
Early Sign of Heart Failure

A low EF number is an early sign of heart failure. This is a condition where the heart doesn't pump enough blood to the rest of the body. With treatment, many people live well with heart failure. So if you 
 have a low EF, it is important that you recognize
 the signs of heart failure, which may include:                

  • fatigue
  • shortness of breath
  • swelling in the feet
A low EF can also cause irregular heartbeat, which can make your heart stop pumping suddenly. Depending on your EF score, your healthcare provider may prescribe medications. But there is a lot you can do to improve how well your heart pumps.
