How easy is it to say HFpEF and HFrEF?   The answer is… not very easy! However, heart failure has a new classification based on ejection fraction that doctors will need to know about.

HFpEF stands for “heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.” This preserved ejection fraction is defined as greater than or equal to 50%.

HFrEF stands for “heart failure with reduced ejection fraction.” This is the “classic” form of heart failure that doctors are familiar with. The ejection fraction in HRrEF is defined as less than or equal to 50%.
