Managing cardiogenic shock

Cardiogenic shock (due to low cardiac output) may occur as a result of low stroke volume or bradycardia. In this video from our ICU Masterclass–Inotropes and Vasopressors, we'll cover reversible and irreversible causes of low cardiac output and how to selective choose agents to manage these effectively.

Join our Inotropes and Vasopressors Masterclass

Hemodynamic support for unstable patients can be a daunting process. In our ICU Masterclass–Inotropes and Vasopressors, you’ll learn a systematic, hands-on approach for the use of vasopressors and inotropes. You’ll discover why one size does not fit all and learn about the underlying mechanisms of action of these agents so you can safely and effectively use the appropriate agent for each unique patient.
