Normal Range of Echocardiograph values

Hello everybody;
I was diagnosed with HBP 2 months ago and my BP was 210/120, my doctor now have put me on four different medication. My doctor has ordered me an echocardiograhp and I have had the echo and found that I have some abnormalities in the septum wall. I thought that it would be wise to take another echo at a different doctor, I did so and the doctor said that you have an entirely normal echo.
The echo report has different items such as LA, AO, IVS, PW, LVD, LVS, EF%, FS%. I have asked my doctor about the normal range of these values and my doctor said that don't worry about the normal range….you are Ok.

My Question: How can I know the normal values for these values, I would appreciate any feedback in providing me with the normal range of these values or any website which has such information, so I can know where do I stand now.
Thank you in advance

One of the other threads referred to a website called You have to sign up to use it, but it's free. I don't know if they have what you are looking for, but maybe it will help. Another website that is pretty good is Hey, anybody else out there have any suggestions?

Re: Normal Range of Echocardiograph values

I assume both doctors were cardiologists. If not take their opinions with a grain of salt.

After searching the net for you, I've concluded the best you can do is try a nearby medical university library for the values. Google didn't help me much but here's the best I could find:
(Oh yeah, these days they are called "reference values"..., I guess "normal" isn't so normal anymore)
