Leading world authorities drawn from cardiology, surgery, pediatrics, internal medicine, and basic science comprehensively survey the diagnostic, therapeutic, and prognostic aspects of cardiogenic shock. These experts describe the different scenarios leading to cardiogenic shock, the ways to diagnose their causes, the unique therapeutic options based on those causes, and the outcomes associated with treatment and without. The book also surveys the biochemical and physiological changes that occur in the heart and other organs during cardiogenic shock, the identification of patients at risk for developing shock, and the novel pharmacological agents and assist devices that can help to stabilize the shock patient.
