Brief Answer:
please see below.

Detailed Answer:
Dear madm.
Mild CHF indeed does not convey much about the cardiac status itself. It would be much more helpful if you can narrate your symptoms at that time and you can share your ECHO report. That would provide much clearer idea of your cardiac status.
The current feature may be of cardiac problem, especially in view of fact that your blood work up is normal. The normal blood work up rules out many other causes for such symptoms like anemia, kidney failure, liver failure etc.
Waiting for your details.
Sincerely
Sykhvinder

His EF rate was betweeen 5-10% now at 20% according to latest Echo, but he can barely walk or talk without being winded.

The dr wants to do a right heart cath to measure pressures now sure why...thanks
