Patient: A 59-year-old male patient with no previous medical history presented to the ER with dizziness.

Initial Examination: The patient was hypotensive and tachycardic. ECG revealed ventricular tachycardia. Due to hemodynamic decompensation successful DC cardioversion to sinus rhythm was performed.

Kosmos POCUS Examination: After the restoration of normal rhythm, a bedside exam with Kosmos revealed dyskinesia of the RV inflow region, suggesting ARVC (Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy). The diagnosis was later confirmed with cMR.
