Is 63% ejection fraction normal for a 21yr old female?
this was determined in the results of a echocardiogram

Absolutely spectacular !!, was this a routine test or did your Dr. suspect a problem?

return to the cardiologist for a review of the results.

55% - 75% is considered within normal range for any age. Also an echocardiogram is not as accurate as other tests. My EF is 30% and that was determined by a series of tests, including an echo, adenosine myoview, and chemical stress test. I cannot do the treadmill stress test because of CHF, CAD, Acute cardiomyopathy, and COPD. I had an angiogram done today, and no blockages were found, so my next step is an ICD, to help improve my chances of not dying from SCD. I have 6 stents also. I just turned 49, so age really doesn't have anything to do with it.


Cats
Yeah thats fine - normal is between 55 and 75.

You are exactly in the center of the normal range.

Angiola is spot on.
Next time you visit a doc who does an USS of your heart, have him or her explain what the numbers mean! That is what their job is and if you do not ask the questions, they are earning easy money.

Yes, you are perfectly normal.

Good ( Ejection fraction 50 to 70%) 5 year survival after surgery for three-vessel disease is 90%.


angiola
Ejection fraction is the % of the blood pumped out of the ventricle after a beat. The important thing to understand is that your heart doesn't pump 100% of the blood out of the ventricles with each beat, otherwise your ventricle would be completely empty and collapsed at the end of a heartbeat. Hearts don't work that way, and always keep a residual volume of blood in them. So just know that your heart keeps some blood in it at all times so although 63% may seem low, this is actually normal. Low is below 40%--this is when somebody is classified with systolic heart failure.
