- Current active ischemic heart disease

- Prior Cerebrovascular Accident (CVA)

- Known valvular heart disease without known LV dysfunction

- Atrial fibrillation

- Ventricular arrhythmia resulting in syncope or pre-syncope (protocol amended to
remove this entry criteria)

Key exclusion criteria
1. Known systolic or diastolic heart failure

2. Symptoms suggestive of current heart failure. (protocol amended to remove this
criteria)

3. LV systolic or diastolic dysfunction on echocardiography or other objective imaging
modality.

4. Medications for treatment of heart failure such as ACE inhibitors, angiotensin
receptor blockers (ARBs), beta-blockers or aldosterone antagonists. Use of such
medications for approved indications such as hypertension, post-MI management (without
known LV dysfunction) or for diabetic nephropathy is permitted. (protocol amended to

Summary
Brief summary
The investigators are hoping to identify early heart failure in patients who do not have
symptoms as yet and at the same time assess the usefulness of Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP)
in doing this.
