Heart Ejection Factor

Posted By Robert D. on July 09, 1998 at 19:34:02:







I had a heart attack in 1993.  My heart attack was cause by my heart losing it's rhythm(arrhythmic I think it's called).  When I was in the hospital I had a heart cath done and no blockages was found.  Every year since 1993 I have a stress test and cardio ultra sound done.  In 1994 my ejection factor was 45%, this year my ejection factor was 15%.  My question is how can I increase my ejection factor back to 45%, 50% or higher.  Would exercise help in increasing the ejection factor or is there another solution.  My doctor has me on Prinivil 20mg,Liptor (liptor) 10mg and Warfarin 6mg.  I am 50 years old and I do workout on my Nordic track 2 to 3 times a week for about 20 to 30 minutes.
