As strange as it sounds, normal values vary by echo lab. If the lab that did your echo provided you with values, you should use those. The other thing I would caution you about is that it is difficult to know what these numbers actually mean. It is easy to get upset about a value that is not clincally significant is outside the normal range.
SD = standard deviation.
SD means that 95% of normal populations has values in this range, but it is still possible to have normal values slightly outside the range depending on clinic cirucmstances.
