People with HCM have shown improvement in exercise-induced angina and dyspnea, and exercise intolerance when given β-blockers. Cats rarely exert themselves, so those indications do not apply. However, a β-blocker does reduce systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve and should be considered when this abnormality is severe (pressure gradient across the dynamic subaortic stenosis is >80 mm Hg) epub. Cardiovascular disease is a complex and multifactorial disease and is characterized by multiple factors. Epidemiologic studies have identified these as elevated serum lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides), increased plasma fibrinogen and coagulation factors, increased platelet activation, alterations in glucose metabolism, and smoking ( 4 ).

This occurs either because the atrial myocardium is functionally unable to be depolarized (usually due to hyperkalemia), or because it has been destroyed by a cardiomyopathy or myocarditis (persistent atrial standstill) Cardiovascular Intervention: A Companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease (Companion to Braunwald's Heart Disease).
