Stress cardiomyopathy (also known as transient left ventricular apical ballooning syndrome, Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, or broken heart syndrome) is a condition that mimics a myocardial infarction in the absence of significant coronary artery disease. Stress cardiomyopathy causes a temporary ballooning of the apical portion of the left ventricle. Healthcare professionals need to know about stress cardiomyopathy, including how to distinguish it from a myocardial infarction, and the appropriate care.
The goal of this course is to inform nurses about the features of and the medical treatments and interventions for stress cardiomyopathy (broken heart syndrome).
