    [Ejection Fraction]

    Howdy folks. Lisa thanks for spending the time with me on the phone today. The information you gave me was very helpful. I had my MUGA this afternoon and found out that my resting ejection fraction is 60%. My followup is on Thursday and I want to explore the possibility that resting and stress ejection fractions are perhaps not the same.

    I will also ask questions regarding the many other important measurements you asked me about. Just knowing how to ask questions makes things seem a bit more in control. Thanks again.

    OK - lets look at what we are dealing with here... Your Ejection Fraction is 60% and that is with in normal range and I would not suspect it will change much. That is not the number we expect to see change with a stress test, we look for changes in the gradient, to see if you become more obstructed with excersise.

    The issues regarding your family history of sudden death are the big ones here.

    To ICD or not to ICD that is the real question!

    Hey if you happen by Wilber...you can send some my way!

    For the rest of you Leon lives near a really good little chocolate company! Sarah leave me alone I know it has caffine...but I have an ICD! ha ha

    Leon all the best to you and your family it was nice speaking with you.

    Dear Lisa,

    You are a big girl now. You can do as you please. I had cheese last night, so we are even!
