Mar 17th, 2015

  • Fluid resuscitation to correct hypovolemia and hypotension, unless pulmonary edema is present

  • Prompt initiation of pharmacologic therapy to maintain blood pressure and cardiac output

  • Admission to an intensive care setting (eg, cardiac catheterization suite or ICU or critical care transport to a tertiary care center)

  • Early and definitive restoration of coronary blood flow; at present, this represents standard therapy for patients with cardiogenic shock due to myocardial ischemia

  • Correction of electrolyte and acid-base abnormalities (eg, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, acidosis)
