Preserved left ventricular systolic function???

Im changing doctors because my current dr has no bedside manner and will not explain anything to me. Im trying to make this short..i experienced a medicine induced panic attack from ssri's which caused me anxiety which is now being treated by a psy dr. Anyways, my dr gave me a stress test and and an echocardiogram, which they told me both came back normal. In the process of picking up my test results which im going to give my new dr, i reviewed them and everything was normal on the stress test and also on the echo, but it says at the bottom that the conclusion is preserved left ventricular systolic function, i called my drs nurse who is in charge of all test results and she said this didnt mean anything just that it was all normal..is this true? thanks..J

The nurse was telling you the truth.

Don't worry.
