Urine infection needs antibiotic as per culture and sensitivity - in this case Amoxicillin with clavulanic acid Ischemic heart disease is cause of low election fraction,. Angiography and if required angioplasty may improve the ejection fraction

Go for urine culture and sensitivity for dysuria. Rest management is very fine.

Treat UTI 1st Then plan for PCI. May be dobutamine tgerapy help in improving EF.
