The ejection fraction (EF) is the percent of blood pumped into circulation with each heartbeat. Normal is 50 to 70%., below 29% is considered heart failure range meaning the heart may not be pumping enough blood to meet the blood/oxygen demand.  Under that condition there would/should be shortage of breath with any exertion and sometimes there is chest pain (angina).

There are people that function well with an EF below 29% as the symptoms are controlled by a system that has successfully compensated.  Depending on the underlying cause you may be able to increase your EF.
