35%heart funtion sudden death

my father had 35% heart function and had severe bouts with angina throughout
the years. he was fine one week before he died. he had complained about
odd tooth pain that came and went. he collapsed while trying to get in the
car. paramedics worked on him for one hour before taking him to the er
he died at the er. i don't know what the cause of death was. he went from
being fine to being dead.

So sorry to hear of your father's passing. As I'm sure you know, an EF of 35% is just over CHF levels so his heart was week. The tooth pain could very well have been a symptom of a heart attack with muscle cells dying. Unfortunately, these things can happen just that fast. As more muscle is killed, the heart could start having trouble getting an electrical impuse to all the chambers of the heart and he may had a sudden cardiac arrest.
