Target
Audience

This symposium is designed for:
 

  • Cardiologists

  • Advanced heart failure cardiologists

  • Cardiothoracic surgeons

  • Intensivists and critical care physicians

  • Nurses

  • Perfusionists

  • Residents/fellows

  • Advanced practice providers

  • Medical staff interested in the physiology, diagnosis, and management of shock

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
 

  • Explain that cardiogenic shock is a final common pathway of multiple different disease states, and that management should be implemented early, and efficiently.

  • Define best practices in management of shock and the optimal timing and utilization of percutaneous circulatory assist device including counter-pulsation, left ventricular, right ventricular, or biventricular support device for different shock cases.

  • Identify cardiogenic shock research priorities, to conduct clinical trials, and to create large population-based registries to generate quality improvement opportunities.

  • Discuss current clinical evidence on management of post LVAD and transplant shock and outline best practices of high-volume centers from a surgical and medical perspective.

  • Describe the kinetics of cardiogenic shock and patient-device interaction as well as non-device therapeutic options for treatment including hypothermia, revascularization, and inotropes.

  • Describe the impact of pulmonary embolism (PE) and therapies available for hemodynamically unstable PE, including mechanical circulatory support device therapy for stabilization.

  • Review management strategies for the critically ill in medical ICU, such as ARDS management

  • Discuss current and future therapies for valvular heart disease.
