Is 80% EF good or dangerous?

Good afternoon doctors!! What is a stress gated EF (ejection fraction) of 80%? Is that good or dangerous? I also have mild diastolic dysfunction and borderline concentric LVH (left ventricular hypertrophy). Regards.

This means that 80% of the blood in the heart (when it is completely full) is pumped out to the body. The % number is a bit high, but is probably normal.
