Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute Grand Rounds: Recognition and Management of Acute Cardiogenic Shock

Miami, FL US
May 30, 2017

Cardiogenic shock has long been a difficult problem for clinicians. It is the leading cause of in-hospital death after myocardial infarction. Recently, however, survival rates have been improving. Improved understanding of the pathophysiology of cardiogenic shock has led to renewed emphasis on the notion that stunned or hibernating myocardium may recover function with hemodynamic support and restoration of flow. Dr. Navin K. Kapur will discuss patient assessment to identify signs of cardiogenic shock to rapidly escalate triage and management to improve patient outcomes.  He will also review the latest on assist devices that can improve the management of cardiogenic shock. Dr. Lisardo Garcia-Covarrubias will discuss the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), and Dr. Marcus St. John will review cases. 

Target Audience

Cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, interventional radiologists, general internists, intensivists, critical care physicians, emergency medicine physicians, hospitalists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, respiratory therapists and other interested healthcare providers.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the clinical and hemodyamic signs of cardiogenic shock.
  • Escalate the importance of early recognition of shock in the adequate triage and treatment of patients in shock.
  • Analyze indications for various support devices in the management of shock.
