When your heart is functioning at 30 percent, it means that your heart is not pumping as much blood as it should be. This can lead to a range of health issues, including heart failure, arrhythmia, and even death. But what does this mean for your life expectancy?
According to the American Heart Association, the five-year survival rate for heart failure patients with an ejection fraction (EF) of 30 percent or less is only 50 percent. This means that half of all patients with this condition will not survive beyond five years.
But there is hope. With the right treatment and lifestyle changes, you can improve your heart function and increase your life expectancy. At Nao Medical, our cardiology specialists are here to help you do just that.
