AMI Cardiogenic Shock

The Procedure


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.
