what is reduced cardiac function?

gangadharan nair
The primary function of the heart is to impart energy to blood in order to generate and sustain an arterial blood pressure necessary to provide adequate perfusion of organs. The heart achieves this by contracting its muscular walls around a closed chamber to generate sufficient pressure to propel blood from the cardiac chamber (e.g., left ventricle), through the aortic valve and into the aorta.
Each time the heart beats, a volume of blood is ejected. This stroke volume (SV), times the number of beats per minute (heart rate, HR), equals the cardiac output (CO).
Reduced cardiac function means pumping of oxygenated blood is not normal quantitatively.

When a doctor tells someone that they have "reduced cardiac function" it means that their heart is not working as a healthy heart does. There are many causes for such a condition. There can be cardiomyopathy which is damaged or dead muscle tissue in the heart. It can also be heart rhythm problems, heart valve problems, enlarged left ventricle and several other conditions. It all boils down to the heart being a less efficient blood pump than that of a healthy individual.

Your heart is not pumping as well as it should. It could also mean the beginning stages of heart failure.

It simply means that the heart is not performing as well as it should. This can be due to structural abnormality/damage or disease of the heart which affects the hearts ability to pump blood as it should.
