AMI Cardiogenic Shock
Good Outcomes in Cardiogenic Shock are Associated with:
- Early shock recognition1
- Initiation of Impella® device support pre-PCI
- Use of right heart catheterization (RHC) to optimize therapy1
- Timely escalation of care
Unloading Pre-PCI Associated with Improved AMI Cardiogenic Shock Outcome
Right Heart Failure is Common in AMI Cardiogenic Shock and Associated with a Three-Fold Increase in Mortality
It is important to identify right heart dysfunction early and before the patient leaves the cath lab.
