That's correct. I couldn't tell from the article though if they were saying his ejection fraction was 44% or if it was 44% from the norm. That makes a difference because an EF of 44% is not a bad EF. I suspect they are worried that he has a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. That is the heart condition where the heart is so big it no longer pumps effectively. That is also the heart condition that has a propensity to cause cardiac arrythmias (funky heart beats) which can lead to sudden death.

If he is cleared medically, in a heart beat.
