An Overview of Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy

Overview

Our understanding of the major risk factors of cardiovascular disease—such as diet, elevated blood pressure, high body mass index, increased total cholesterol, high fasting glucose level, smoking, and sedentary lifestyle—has increased, but little was known about arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM) until recently. Because of the low prevalence of conditions that lead to ACM, many healthcare providers may not be familiar with managing the disease or identifying those at risk. In 2019, the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) issued a comprehensive consensus report on ACM management. This article provides an overview of selected genetic (BrS, left ventricular noncompaction), systemic (sarcoidosis, cardiac amyloidosis), infiltrative (cardiac amyloidosis), and infectious (Chagas disease) disorders that can lead to ACM. Understanding conditions that can cause this disorder will help nurses educate and care for patients.

Key Learning Outcomes

  1. Compare the causes of arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM) as to pathophysiology, clinical course, and management.
  2. Discuss nursing implications for patients with ACM.
