Among the seven participants with abnormal wall motion immediately post race, the mean LV ejection fraction was 57.8% pre-race, 45.9% post race, and 56.2% 1 week later.
Patients with abnormal wall motion had a 3.9-fold greater risk of late events than those with normal wall motion.

Echocardiography, or ultrasonic study of the heart, is used to evaluate heart function, such as the ratio of the amount of blood pumped with each beat to the amount of blood present immediately before the ventricle contracts (the ejection fraction) and abnormal wall motion. It is also useful in detecting blood clots.
No patient had significant changes in the ejection fraction or abnormal wall motions. CONCLUSIONS: Most ambulatory young adults with acute influenza have clinically insignificant abnormal electrocardiogram findings early during the illness.
