About this book


Best known as an often fatal complication of myocardial infarction, cardiogenic shock also occurs in patients with a wide variety of cardiac disorders, ranging from congenital lesions in both children and adults, to valvular disease, to myocardial or pericardial disease, to mechanical injuries to the heart. In Cardiogenic Shock: Diagnosis and Treatment, leading world authorities drawn from cardiology, surgery, pediatrics, internal medicine, and basic science comprehensively survey the diagnostic, therapeutic, and prognostic aspects of this dire condition. 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.
Comprehensive and up-to-date, Cardiogenic Shock: Diagnosis and Treatment consolidates the plethora of available data into a focused clinical manual for diagnosing and treating a major cause of death among patients with cardiac disease.
