I'm 64 yrs old & have been suffering from High Blood Pressure & Diabetes for more than 22 yrs now. Recently I have been diagnosed that:

I have an EF of 20%
I have twor coronary arteries that are 100% blocked
My lungs had some deposition of water/ vapours & doctors described it as a case Congestive Heart Failure.

I shall like to know how much Biventricular Pace Maker shall help in this scenario. Also, is it recommended to have BVP+ICD for a person like me?

Pls. respond.
