Abstract

Background: We hypothesized that patients could be selected for echocardiographic evaluation of left ventricular (LV) systolic function on the basis of historic, clinical, radiographic, and electrocardiographic criteria. Methods and Results: We prospectively evaluated 300 consecutive inpatients referred for the echocardiographic assessment of LV function, of whom 124 (41%) had LV systolic dysfunction (LVSD) (LV ejection fraction
