Abstract

Cardiogenic shock in the setting of acute myocardial infarction (AMICS) carries high mortality. A systematic, protocol-driven, approach to AMICS may improve outcomes. The 5 key “ingredients” for the managements of AMICS are: (a) early diagnosis; (b) hemodynamic assessment; (c) culprit-only coronary revascularization; (d) judicious use of mechanic circulatory support; (e) expert in-hospital treatment.
