HelloMr.Ann541254,thanks for posting in AMD.Ejection fraction is the percentage of total blood in ventricle pumped with each beat.Ejection fraction is assumed in percentage which is roughly equal to % of working heart as you told.Normal EF is 55 to 70% and anything below 30% carries high risk.He needs regular medications without fail and implantation of defibrillator as adviced by your cardiologist.Take care.
