Description:

McNamara et al used 4 clinical parameters (1 historical, 1 radiologic, 1 from the ECG, 1 laboratory test) to predict if the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) was > 0.40. This is a simple assessment that can be performed without complex equipment. The authors are from the University of Rochester in New York.
