AMI Cardiogenic Shock

Patient Identification

Early Identification of Cardiogenic Shock Improves Outcomes

Timely treatment adhering to a best practice protocol, that includes early use of mechanical circulatory support, hemodynamic monitoring, and aggressive reduction of inotropes and pressors, can help patients achieve myocardial recovery.1

 

MCS and the Spectrum of Cardiogenic Shock

This paper of Andrea Montisci, MD, et al. discusses the latest guidance for identifying patients with cardiogenic shock (CS) who are candidates for mechanical circulatory support (MCS).

 

Algorithm for MCS Selection in Cardiogenic Shock

Letizia F. Bertoldi, MD, discusses practical management of inotropes in cardiogenic shock as well as an algorithm for MCS selection.

A Propensity Score-Matched Analysis of the Impact of an Institutional Allocation Protocol to Short-Term Mechanical Circulatory Support

In this paper, Sascha Ott and colleagues describe a standard operating procedure (SOP) they developed for determining the temporary mechanical circulatory support (tMCS) strategy for patients in cardiogenic shock (CS).

Letizia F. Bertoldi, MD, and colleagues describe how catecholamines and percutaneous ventricular assist devices (pVADs) are used to treat cardiogenic shock (CS). Bertoldi et al. propose an algorithm for practical management of inotropes in CS as well as an algorithm for selection of pVADs in patients with CS.
