Brief Answer:
Normal ejection fraction (heart capacity) should be higher than 60%

Detailed Answer:
Hi my dear,

Normal ejection fraction (heart capacity) should be higher than 60% during an echocardiogram.

If lower than 60%, then, circulation problems of the heart should be ruled out and correctly treated.

Please provide your echocardiogram report, so I can analyze if your ejection fraction is within normal range or not.
