AMI Cardiogenic Shock

Clinical Evidence

Key Findings from the National Cardiogenic Shock Initiative Study1,2,3

  • Identify and support cardiogenic shock early
  • Turn down titriation of inotropes aggressively
  • Identify inadequate left ventricular (LV) support and escalate, if CPO <0.6
  • Identify right ventricular (RV) dysfunction early and support
  • Systematically use right heart catheter (RHC) to guide therapy
