Left Ventrical Ejection Fraction
Had a post-Pacemake MRI yesterday--one more attempt to try to figure out why I have a blockage that required a pacemaker. No answers on that front.
But, my left ventrical EF was 45%, less than ideal. During the testing before my ultrasound, they estimated EF to be 60%. I know the ultrasound is less accurate, but anyone have experience with readings from the MRI?
Also curious whether the pacemaker can effect EF. My pacemaker is set to a low of 60, my resting pulse used to be in the low 50s naturally (but dipping lower due to Bradycardia and Sic Sinus Syndrome). They set the pacemaker to 80 for the MRI.
I don't like the sound of a low EF, especially since I am very active, exercising almost every day. Curious about anyone's experience with EF readings or dealing with EF. . .

I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
