My friends husband was just diagnosed with CHF, he is only 42. He is very overweight, they say he has fluid around the heart, he has a heart arrythmia, and a very weak heart. They are trying to get the heart rate under control. I told my friend to ask what his ejection fraction of the heart is. If he has a very low EJ does this mean he will need a transplant?
