scale for amonia(ammonia) levels in crihossis?

My father-in-law has non-alcoholic, non-hepatitus cirhossis of the liver. He had recent bloodwork that showed amonia (ammonia) in his blood. I would like to know if anyone knows what the normal range is for ammonia in  a person;s blood. What an elevated number and what's not?

I AM DIAGNOSED WITH END STAGE LIVER DISEASE AS A RESULT OF ALCOHOL ABUSE. THIS IS THE INFO I HAVE BEEN GIVEN CONCERNING AMMONIA LEVELS. NORMAL IS 80 AND UNDER. MY AMMONIA HAS BECOME ELEVATED AS HIGH AS 800. WHEN MY AMMONIA BECOMES ELEVATED, ENCEPHALOPATHY SETS IN. THIS CAUSES ME TO BECOME CONFUSED, DISORIENTED, AND UNSTEADY ON MY FEET. THIS IS USUALLY THE POINT WHERE I END UP IN THE HOSPITAL.
