epss for chf - cisewski and alerhand

Perhaps never explained so clearly, Cisewki and Alerhand’s article on EPSS is a wonderful read.

Bottom line to remember:¬†EPSS > 7 mm was 87% sensitive and 75% specific at identifying reduced EF (<50%).¬† This is the cutoff generally used to point to an abnormal EF (but isn’t it all about stroke volume, really?)
