Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a hormone produced in the body that, when elevated, may be an indication of congestive heart failure (CHF). Elevated cholesterol levels in young adults in their 20's and 30's were predictive of the development of coronary artery calcium and atherosclerosis later in life. This is often accompanied by symptoms of crushing, diffuse pain in the chest (directly over the heart), a shortness of breath (air hunger) that leads to gasping, weakness, anxiety, light-headedness, nausea and sweating.

Diltiazem (7.5 mg, PO, tid), a calcium channel blocker, may improve diastolic function, but its effects are generally negligible and its use has diminished. Use of β-blockers such as atenolol (6.25–12.5 mg, PO, 1–2 times/day) may also be considered, but proof of benefit is lacking. People with HCM have shown improvement in exercise-induced angina and dyspnea, and exercise intolerance when given β-blockers Capnography in Clinical Practice.

This form has characteristics similar to dilated and hypertrophic. Cats with this problem have scar tissue instead of normal heart muscle. The scar tissue decreased the strength of the heart, so it pumps out less blood at each beat (decreased stroke volume). The diseased heart muscle beats irregularly (arrhythmia) and does not have the contractility to pump blood to the rest of the body (decreased cardiac output) 150 ECG Problems, 3e.
