Answer:

Once heart function is less than 50%, it can go into cardiac arrest.

Explanation:

If there is not enough blood being pumped into the heart, a person can be diagnosed with systolic heart failure . It is hard to determine how long a person has to live once heart function reaches 20%. It depends on the person, their age, previous medical conditions, etc.

Here are some links that explain heart failure and function in more detail:
