--------------------------------------------------

Ejection fraction is the percentage of blood pumped from your large heart chamber (ventricle) with each heartbeat.
Typically, one beat clears just more than half the blood from that chamber.

Each ventricle has an ejection fraction. However, heart failure usually occurs on the left side of the heart. Doctors will measure the left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) to determine how well the heart is doing. Ejection fraction, or EF, usually refers to LVEF, while doctors usually specify right ventricle ejection fraction if they are referring to the less common measurement.
