This timely and comprehensive review is the only book to focus on the importance of treating cardiogenic shock as a discrete condition, not merely a symptom of another disease. The editors and authors are esteemed clinicians and investigators who have furthered our knowledge of the evaluation and management of cardiogenic shock. Contributors to this book comprise an international group of multidisciplinary specialists with extensive expertise in various aspects of cardiogenic shock, who have balanced their knowledge of pathophysiology and cutting–edge therapeutic approaches with their experience and unique perspectives.

Practical management strategies based on the latest data from randomised trials of treatment strategies – including SHOCK, SMASH, and TACTICS – are discussed. Detailed reviews of related therapies such as ventricular assist devices, as well as special problems such as right ventricular myocardial infarction and rhythm disturbances, are provided. The future of potential metabolic support of the myocardium is presented.
