Hemodynamic Session, Video 1: Hemodynamic Support for AMI with Cardiogenic Shock

Session Summary, Hemodynamic Session, Video 1

The concept of a shock team approach for AMI patients with cardiogenic shock is elucidated in this discussion. This team consists of an on-call cardiac surgeon, interventionist, heart failure specialist, and echocardiographer. Upon admission of a shock patient, this response team works together to determine the best choice for hemodynamic support. Data are still lacking to generate an adequate hemodynamic support algorithm.
