This course is specifically for Surgeons, Heart Failure and Interventional Cardiologists (Heart Team) that treat patients with cardiogenic shock with a primary focus on survival with native heart recovery.
Tag: Cardiogenic Shock
Reference: J Am Coll Cardiol 2018; 72:1972-80 Cardiogenic shock continues to be the leading cause of death in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI).1 Despite implementation of guideline-recommended early revascularization, mortality rates in AMI complicated by cardiogenic shock (AMICS) remains constant at about 50%. Given that about 60,000 patients with AMI develop CS every … Continue reading “Improving Survival in Cardiogenic Shock by Adopting a Uniform Approach to Systems of Care”
Dr. Michael Amponsah of Central New York Cardiology/Mohawk Valley Health System shares a case of Impella CP for a non-ischemic cardiomyopathy patient who presented in cardiogenic shock. The patient, a 51 year old male was diagnosed with NYHA Class III non-ischemic systolic heart failure with an ejection fraction of 20% and an ICD. He presented … Continue reading “Dr. Michael Amponsah Cardiogenic Shock Case with Impella CP”
