We will investigate whether using ECMO on patients that suffer from cardiogenic
shock immediately after their heart attack will reduce mortality rates and improve their outcomes.
We in this study also recorded the short-term effects after AMI in the form of major bleeding, cardiogenic
shock, arrhythmias and acute heart failure.
Although shock is a classic critical syndrome encountered in the ED, the clinical characteristics, current interventions, and short-term outcomes with certain types of shock have been little investigated or reported; other types, for example, septic and cardiogenic
shock, have been investigated in some depth.
Determinants of prognostic outcomes like peak CPK, CKMB, Ejection fraction, serum Creatinine, cardiac failure, Cardiogenic
shock (at presentation), in-hospital mortality in two groups was collected and documented.
The PRASTRO-II study was conducted in 654 ischemic cerebrovascular disease patients, excluding cardiogenic
cerebral embolisms, aged 75 years or older and/or weighing 50 kg or less to evaluate safety (the incidence of clinically relevant bleeding) of prasugrel administered once daily in 3.
The SynCor trial is a prospective, non-randomized, multi- center, open-label observational study of the safety and performance of the i-cor System in 45 consecutively enrolled patients with cardiogenic
shock or in high-risk percutaneous intervention procedures in the cardiac catheterization lab.
With this approval, these are the first and only percutaneous temporary ventricular support devices that are FDA-approved as safe and effective for the cardiogenic
shock indication, as stated.
Temporal trends in cardiogenic
shock complicating acute myocardial infarction.
The study, led by members of Vanderbilt's ICU Delirium and Cognitive Impairment Group, found that 74 percent of the 821 patients studied, all adults with respiratory failure, cardiogenic
shock or septic shock, developed delirium while in the hospital, which the authors found is a predictor of a dementia-like brain disease even a year after discharge from the ICU.
Conclusion: Frequency of complications is higher and cardiogenic
shock is the most common complication in acute RVMI patients.
He also highlighted another emerging issue with regard to beta-blockers, this one involving their widespread inappropriate use in the early treatment of MI in patients with one or more risk factors for cardiogenic
shock was defined as acute myocardial disease requiring the use of vasoactive drug therapy for a systolic arterial pressure less than 90 mmHg and/or a cardiac index less than 2.
