In the univariate logistic regression analysis, cardiac shock (odds ratio, 30.00; P = 0.029) and heart failure of NYHA class IV (odds ratio, 30.00; P = 0.029) were correlated with in-hospital or 30-day mortality (Table 4).
The deceased patient died from complete atrioventricular block, and cardiac shock attributed to LM.
Moreover, as shown in Table 3, in the nondiabetic group, the incidence of cardiac shock in hyperglycemia subgroup is much higher than nonhyperglycemia subgroup (12.95% versus 56.25%, P < 0.001).
Common causes include heart attack (cardiac shock), heavy bleeding (hypovolaemic shock), severe allergy (anaphylactic shock) and infection (septic shock).
All 37 patients were experiencing cardiac dysfunction, and eight patients were in cardiac shock with severe metabolic acidosis.
